The picture has its drawbacks. The script is sometimes overly rude, and in the final part there are problems with plausibility. Spontaneous shots and cuts sometimes can seem too chaotic. However the motion picture carries a deeper meaning: to be truly great in everything you need to work until sweat and blood, work, until you hate someone who makes you work to achieve far elusive dream.
