HOUSE OF FOOLS: RUSSIAN CRITICS ON MIRONOV'S PERFORMANCE
The Russian commander, in a vivid star turn by Yevgeny Mironov, comes off as a skilled blasphemer and a hard-core neurotic, terrified and vicious.
Leonid Pavliuchik Troud, 2002
Running in counterpoint to ... the he-men [characters] is a sensitive, high-strung performance by Yevgeny Mironov.
Some things do work ... for Konchalovsky – e.g., Yevgeny Mironov as a Russian officer on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
Aleksei Medvedev Vremya novostei, 2002
An exquisite performance by Yevgeny Mironov as the shell-shocked commander.
Yelena Belostotzkaya Literaturnaya gazeta, 2002
Yevgeny Mironov has a cameo appearance as a federal-army commander. An actor who simply doesn't know what bad acting is, Mironov is particularly striking against House of Fools' general artistic anemia, momentary hefting the official picture of the year to the level of its pretensions.
