Interesting interview with a woman who saw it on TV when it came out:

"What does Khraniteli say about the late Soviet Union?"

"It's not the story itself but the way it was made. Absurd costumes, a film devoid of direction or editing, woeful make-up and acting – it all screams of a country in collapse. … They made it without anyone's help. There was no money, there were no experts. … Bearing all that in mind, have a bit of mercy on the people who made this and give them credit for trying at least. I'm not sure anyone else could have done better in the circumstances."
