"Capturing the tragicomic Wild West atmosphere of today's Russia seems to be the aim of numerous films; "Lubov and Other Nightmares" is one of the few that succeeds without specifically trying. Densely structured and shot, pic takes the viewer through layer upon layer of masquerade, corruption, sexuality and emotions. Challenging and offbeat in the extreme."
Variety, 05-11.03.2001

"One of the most imressive films of the festivalis a very strong, direct movie about love, personal memories and the New Russia that leaves you dizzy after seeing it."
Moving Pictures Rotterdam Daily, N 1129.01.01

Intelligent, complex and visually powerful film about love, the situation in the new Russia and Western attitudes to it.
Moving Pictures Berlinale Daily, N 2 10.02.2001
Andrei Nekrasov's film Lubov and other Nightmares marks a new
beginning for experimental Russian cinema.
