[s] One Hundred to One / Sto odnomu (Yaroslav Vozzhayev, 2016)

Sto odnomu is a parody on modern TV. There is a new show: one person as a hero, and one hundred of his wishes are to be granted to him no strings attached. Absolutely everything is possible. Surely, something goes wrong soon enough.

The idea is cute, but poorely thought-through, which made the story sloppy, disorganized, and, as a result, completely implausible. The direction is rather bad, too: the overall style is eclectic as if there was no actual unifying vision (director’s primary purpose), and sometimes actors are just bad, – and not because they are bad actors inherently, but because the director was unable to detect and improve whatever misfires they had (which in itself is a totally normal thing). Actually, seeing that this film was made by a group of student actors, and I know that their mentor is good at his job, – the acting might be the only thing here I don’t have any complaints about.

As a student production (where the primary goal is to learn stuff) this film has every right to exist, however, as an work of art it’s too far from being professional to be taken seriously.
