    ★★★★★

    Following the tensed tracking cadre of two holocaust survivors for a sheer 15 minutes until the utterance of the first dialogue breaks our trance, we delve into the palpable and excruciating exploration of authoritarian judiciary almost subsequently through the two obstinate Jews. ‘Démanty noci’ is chillingly remorseless in it's ethereal and fragmented vignettes that often overlap with the realistic horror in occurrence, much to the compassionate ease of the viewer.

    The above excerpt is the concluding phrase of the film that shrieks a metaphorical message on the Russian's eternal existence and it couldn't have been more astonishing.

    Gliding through the vast catacombs of a museum full of historical and artistic relevance on the modernization of the Russian civilization and it's cultural…
