This a great yarn about love, lust, treachery, betrayal, and murder in a small Siberian village in the 1800's. Everything about this film is harsh, including the people, the climate, and the way that everyone treats each other. Seems like a very realistic portrayal to me, however, given what I've read about Tsarist Russia, and life in Siberia in general.

The stark landscape, an abyss charcoal undertone and a badass Bonnie and Clyde couple make this dramatic Russian interpretation of a Shakespearean play, very visceral and in your face. The characters feel pulled straight from the pages of Gorky and Gogol, with serfs providing both the comedic side characters and the voice of reason.
