The sets are gorgeous. Rebecca Ferguson (in dual roles) has a fantastic nose. The period wardrobe from 1950s and 60s Russia is a must-lust. The period wardrobe from the 90s looks too recent. The Flash backs have flashbacks. All the Russians speak with a British accent. The vintage automobiles are fun to look at. I can’t understand how people are walking casually in sub-zero winter weather in Moscow. It’s almost always snowing. No one looks cold…even with their fur-trimmed coats open to the breeze. Men and women wear dress shoes in the falling snow. However, the shoes keep looking pristine.
The movie is shot beautifully. Hats off to cinematographer David Johnson. And hats and leather gloves off to costume designer Momrika Bailovic for the yummy clothes. I need that lace blouse, crimson coat and brooch.
The cast is serious eye candy. The movie stars Rebecca Ferguson, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Sam Reid, Trudie Styler, Antje Traue, Thure Lindhardt, Charles Dance, and Anthony Head. She loves him, but she loves him too. She also loves her as well. He’s spying for America. She’s spying with him. She’s spying on her lover. Her lover’s spying for America?
The plot? Um, computer says “no.” Despite the Falling Snow hits movie theaters, on-demand and iTunes on March 31st. Love turgid Russian novels, then this is for you. It’s just a tad sprightlier then those.
