"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."
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."
