INDEPENDENT LIFE – Camera Movement. Hand-held. One of a kind style of camera movement. One scene = one shot – subjects "float" in and out of the frame in a most organic, natural, unforced fashion, development within the frame. Imperceptible. Outstanding directing. The strongest directing after "My Friend Ivan Lapshin" by Alexei German, Sr. [German outdid himself in his last great film "Khrustalev, the Car!", 1999] No director since then came close to the depth and complexity of mise-en-scene and character behavior within the parameters of one single scene. A great reference for camera and directing.
