A great many letters were scribbled and several tasteless TV documentaries were shot about the great Russian group «AuktsYon», which recently celebrated its thirtieth anniversary. The film «More» is totally different: the director Dmitri Lavrinenko toiled at it for seven years, that’s exactly how long it took to capture the willful elegance still preserved by Fedorov, Garkusha, Ozersky and Co. Once you peer past the musical façade, what you discover is not the history of the group, but a chronicle of the journey towards unique, amazing music. «More» captures the process of composing the songs which are now sung by heart, as well as those moments which are usually omitted — glimpses of everyday life, touring diaries, conversations in which we repeatedly hear the phrase: «You can’t look at freedom for too long, otherwise you might get giddy».
