Moldova

Человек идет за солнцем

6.5
Tā kā mūsdienās Moldovas kinematogrāfs ir vēl bēdīgākā stāvoklī nekā Latvijas kino rūpals, nācās vien kā Moldovas filmu man skatīties vienu padomju laikos tapušu darbu. "Cilvēks, kas seko saulei" saturiski ir visai vienkārša filma, kas stāsta par zēnu, kas, padzirdējis, ka Zeme ir apaļa, izlemj sekot saulei un apiet zemei apkārt. Un tā tiek rādīta viena diena šī zēna dzīve, un viss, ko viņš tajā pieredz. Diezgan droši var teikt, ka ideju filmas scenāristi - Mihails Kaļiks un Valeriu Gagiu - smēlušies no franču kino klasikas The Red Baloon - ja šādu līdzību spēju saskatīt es un pēcāk to apstiprina arī Wikipedia, esmu visai pārliecināts, ka tā nav nejaušība.

This is probably the only band to come out of Moldova that`s at least a bit known outside its native country. The style of music can be at best described as some weird ethno-pop with elements of rap, rock`n`roll and a lot of other stuff. The closest thing to that can be probably Emir Kusturica and the No Smoking Orchestra. Why? Because the music is bound to make you shake like a jelly fish (a quote from "Crazy little thing called love" by Queen) and because the band doesn`t have no real musical virtuousos and the singer is kinda lame. But that`s surely a part of the show. Probably I wouldn`t care about the band, hadn`t it participated in the crappy thing called Eurovision. From this album a few tracks seem more memorable than the rest - "Hora cosmica" and "Videli noch" which is the only song sung in Russian.
