Šventasis Reviews:

I saw this game yesterday, on a movie festival in Kyiv. I must admit, as Ukrainian, this film was plain boring. I mean I know what I was signing up for anyway - Indie movies with no Hollywood patterns - cool. But this was just too realistically gray and dull for a viewer who has been living in a post-Soviet country. You receive to see an apathetic protagonist with a classic Russian chav attitude (save the utmost pathetic photo of a drunk, thank you very much). Vytas is a struggling mechanic who just lost his job. With a support of the state, he tries to land a job as a mechanic yet again. However, given the chance, Vytas flunks it because he has a very dry personality - he reveals no hobbies and interests (except for the formulaic "sports") or rather he decides to hide that his hobbies contain drinking beer with classmates on the roads (again, a very common activity for post-Soviet countries).But then things spice up with an affair. Vytas spends time with his fresh female mate who trimmed his hair that one time, which led to her assistance with a business outfit at a clothes store. He then takes her for a several walks, sometimes alcohol-included. Vytas has a very closed personality. He is not straightforward with his feelings. Instead of inviting his fresh love interest to a walk with a chat, he chooses a silly reason - trimming his barely visible hair while slipping the fact that he was not agreed for a job. He then thanks her for a what-is-hard-to-call-a-trim-at-all.You might think Vytas would up his minigame with a fresh love interest but no. He is so miserable that after announcing to his wife that he is leaving her, he unsuccessfully tries to transport in to the hairdresser's apartment. He probably didn't even consider the fact that she lives with her parents. The result? He drinks a tea with her in silence and then leaves her. No chat about his feelings, no revelations, just a visualized part of his misery. I should only wonder how he got married in the first place.Between these colorless drama episodes, there is a subplot about a guy who allegedly saw Jesus on the wall. The greatest mate of Vytas is trying to search the guy. Upon seeing the stage where the greatest mate serves a ceremonial role in church, you might receive an concept that he wants too see Jesus for himself. Nope, his first reaction when he finally found the guy was to beat him up on the ground (Christian, am I rye?). A stage later, Vytas, his friend, and the "psycho" meet at that very Jesus wall, with no Jesus in sight. The end.While the summary of a movie suggests there is a theme of success and failures, I, for one, think The Saint was about the ideas of hope, faith, and miracles. Vytas believed he would land a job, he also hoped to begin a fresh relationship, and he probably expected Jesus to turn up on that wall. He place his faith into these things instead of applying the efforts, thus failing at every "challenge". You can spot the pattern of expecting a miracle this way: Vytas signed up for a job searching list, expecting a job to search him; Vytas started spending time with a female, expecting her to present her feelings to him; Vytas looked at the wall expecting Jesus. This entire time he was just standing there and expecting something to happen. It didn't.As a side note, the absence of Christ on the wall place Vytas back to reality because he realized how meaningless his attempts at getting a job and getting laid were. Just like religion gives folks hope and a sense of Apophenia, Vytas thought of the fresh job and a fresh lover as a game-changer in his life but these things were not special, as the wall implies so.Personally, I think a viewer from Western culture would appreciate this movie more than I did because they'd receive an insight into the life of generic civilians from post-Soviet countries. A lot of folks from these states continue to live the lives illustrated in the film to this day, that I can tell.
