Good portrayal of the Soviet Paradise,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: East West [DVD] (DVD)
While the Germans have taken on their past with the likes of Downfall, Das Boot and Stalingrad, the Russians have not. So, here is a French film instead. East West is very good and will strike a cord with anyone familiar with the Soviet Paradise myth.
While Deneuve is prominant on the cover, she appears late in the film and her role is really a beefy cameo. However, she does put some work into her performance and you can't say that about a lot of her recent films. Of the films she made in the Nineties that got distributed in Britain, she is as good here as in Indochine and Ma Saison Prefere and better than Place Vendome and Les Voleurs.
