Staid Russian mountain drama - Break review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
01/03/2020

Four friends are stuck in a cable car on New Year’s Eve. It’s a predictable tale filmed with little flair and with a terrible song on the soundtrack. There’s a token idiot who does stupid things to keep the meagre plot moving as the quartet try to extricate themselves. It’s filmed on the cheap so there’s little sense that they’re anywhere but in a studio. The heroine doesn’t even put her anorak hood up against the cold.

It’s silly and stupid but if you’re in the mood for such fare the Russian setting adds a bit of interest and it just about manages to remain watchable for its hour and a half. It’s even worse in the ludicrous US-dubbed version but why would anyone ever want to ruin a foreign film by watching a dubbed version?
