Therefore turned out so piercingly beautiful March, even to me, is not a fan of urban landscapes, he does not seem ugly piece of iron, as a symbol of creativity and meaningful, happy human life.
general, a special thank you I want to say the genius of the operator. The operator focused on thin, pleasant for me to face, between the palpable vitality of what is happening on the screen, when it seems that you can touch with his hands and smelled, and unreal ephemeral dream. Here, the camera looks a bit detached: this city is real, this is not a phantom created whimsical fantasy director, but sensuality and life does not beat palpable eyes.

And smart, strong, romantic introvert girl Tanya, hiding behind the external inaccessibility his shyness and vulnerability. Tanya, for which Pushkin or Mayakovsky - people are no less dear and beloved than her students, is able to open up new horizons such Sasha, who were before him are not available. (Many criticize the game of the actress, but as for me, because it brilliantly coped with the task of: cold official Tatiana S. instantly transformed into a genuinely smiling girl is worth it just to be among those whom it certainly can not be shy and do not be afraid of only the scene with Rachmaninoff.
