Duty, guilt, delayed redemption and retribution are the themes of this movie, which has resonances with Dostoevsky's works. Yegor Prokudin is an orphan who grew up in a criminal gang. While he was free, he did not lose his innocent, joyful heart, but many years in prison have taken away his joy in living. The film opens on the occasion of his release from prison. Soon, he discovers love with a village peasant girl, Lyuba who restores his will to live and fills him with an enthusiasm for rural life. Their idyll is short-lived, as his former associates will not leave him alone. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

rick r (us) wrote: Christian Sesma's "Lost Time" is a dark, nightmarish sci-fi that stars Rochelle Vallese, Luke Goss, Robert Davi, Derek Mears. Maria Olsen, Jenni Blong, and Chelsea Ricketts. The story blends sci-fi, psychology of fear, and concepts of the supernatural in an emotional tale that centers on two sisters, bonded for life, suddenly separated during trying times by an unexplained event that leaves one sister missing. There is a lost more to the plot that really gives Sesma's story depth but I don't want to spoil it. This is a story that evolves as more of the plot is revealed. As a woman deals with fighting cancer her sister disappears during what is perceived as an alien abduction. Sesma obviously has explored the broader concept of aliens and their "possible" true origins. Blending the spiritual with an emotional trauma, and the awareness of a more sinister construct of our universe, "Lost Time" delves deep into the psychological nightmare and fear that surrounds the mysterious phenomenon of lost time/abduction experience. There is times when some noir permeates the film and reminds me of "Dark City" (not so much in style but in attitude). For me personally, I found the film pulsating with real human emotion, human tragedy, and fear of lost control over one's destiny. Not only on a science fiction level but a level that is very much grounded in mortality, and confusion. The characters, although at first glance seem two dimensional, are standard paradigms emoting despair and desire for self-preservation. "Lost Time" is a complex story that at times feels a bit too tragic and macabre, but also generates such intense, surreal elements of horror. And don't get me started on the fact that the story touches on the concepts of inter-dimensional, multiverse concepts. Comparisons between man's mythology of creation and that of extraterrestrial interference. The special effects and cinematography in "Lost Time" is stellar, with some truly chilling moments. It is a blend of CGI and practical, both done top perfectly and present the necessary spectacle you need to create the moment. I didn't find any of them to be cheap or cheesy. The sound effects and instrumental music is pretty "cookie cutter", it is all sounds we have heard many times over, but they do play well with the scenes, and really drive in the sense of dread that "Lost Time" goes for atmospherically. Overall I enjoyed "Lost Time". The story does get a bit heady at times, and may seem confusing as to the true nature of this chilling tale so be aware. Some moments do loose momentum as far as thrills and intensity, but those moments don't last long. Most of the story stays dark and edgy. This is a more mature, stripped down sci-fi that uses a more toned down amount of CGI and effects to create those elements of fear, or science fiction. I enjoyed the fact that "Lost Time" starts as one kind of alien-esque story but then evolves into something different and far more sinister. The ending is a bit confusing and seems to reach for that final conclusion, but it is creative. -

Dandy L (ag) wrote: Quite possibly the worst script ever written, and a living testament to bad ideas everywhere. You know those movies you watch because they are bad but in a fun way so it feels ok to enjoy them? This is not that kind of film, its just bad. Aside from the fact the film embarks with a ball achingly thin concept and then completely fails to deliver on any surprises, twists or even interesting theological questions; the acting was just damn awful. While watching I couldn't decide whether Bart Bronson, the actor playing Luke O'Brien, was simply taking the piss or just couldn't be fucked putting in the effort. I mean sure the script was terrible, but I thought any actor would at least try give it a little life. Instead Bart seemed to give a half arsed grin for every line he muttered. And yes muttered, take a speech class Bart. If this is what we should expect from Tim Chey in the future, then he really needs to wake up and take a lesson from this pile of cinematic rubbish. That being, if not even Malcolm McDowell's on screen charm can save your film, then it was fucked from the moment you put pen to paper. Final thought? This movie is going to be on Malcolm Mcdowell's resume forever, and that all the positive reviews for this film are from people involved in its production.

Jesse O (ru) wrote: There's a good story to be told here underneath all the gross-out humor that permeates throughout. This movie definitely gives the Farrelly brothers a run for their money. Thankfully though, in spite of that, Tyler Labine and Lucy Punch make this movie more watchable than it would've been otherwise. I can imagine, if I had read the film's script before it was filmed, that I would end up hating it. I'm not big on gross-out movies per se, but I can enjoy them if I'm in the right mood. Problem is, this film passes up a chance to tell a decent story about friendship, adulthood, and maturity in order to throw as much gross-out, and in once instance even blatantly racist, humor at you. These are some pretty universal themes here, because I'm pretty sure in most groups of friends, there's the one that still hasn't grown up, or matured, yet. A perfect example of this concept working perfectly is The World's End, who managed to tell a story about sticking by your friends, even if they're completely inappropriate, in a sci-fi setting. It CAN be done, and I'm pretty sure it could've been done here as well even if you still had the gross-out humor. You just needed a good balance between the humor and warmth. It isn't impossible to pull off. Another issue I have is the cast, more specifically Barry's group. I think they made for a decent group, all things considered. But it never feels like a genuine friendship. You can always tell when they cast a real group of friends, because there's a certain comfort and chemistry that can't be duplicated. For example the Apatow guys...the Seth Rogens, James Francos, Jonah Hill Jay Baruchels, Danny McBrides of the world all have a chemistry with each other where they can believably play friends because they ARE friends in real life. See how it works? Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have that as well, but they're a far 'smaller' group as compared to the Apatow group. I digress, the group, while individually the performances are solid, they never really gel as a group of friends. They're just actors being paid to pretend to be pleasant around each other. Essentially that's what acting is, but that doesn't mean that you can't capture something real from your cast's chemistry with one another. And this film doesn't have that. Perhaps my standards for cast chemistry in these bromances are too high, I've been spoiled by the Apatow group and by Simon Pegg/Nick Frost. I digress, the film follows every rom-com cliches you've grown to detest, with a raunchy twist. The scene where Barry tries to get Mel back with him talking about all the gross things he loves about her is an example. I really don't even know why I gave the film the rating I did. I suppose this is really average at best, but it only gets there thanks to Lucy and Tyler...and some of the lines are funny, but nothing to lose your mind over. Decent movie at best, if the Farrelly brothers are your favorite filmmakers then you'll definitely love this. Everyone else should go watch The World's End.
