Don't expect an enjoyable time with this film. It's very depressing and full of seediness and depravity. Iakov Kultiasov is unforgetable as the ten year old Babu. Filming for the movie began in the year 2000 and due to financial problems was not completed until 2003. Iakov Kultiasov was 9 years old when they started filming and 12 when they finished. He promised the director he would not grow until the film had been completed.
