Year: 2008
Director: Mihail Mareskin
Country: RUSSIAN FEDERATION
Description: Philosophic parable about mans mental rebirth told in modern language. The main character, Ilya Krakovsky, is a prudent, smart and sly drug-dealer. Once he meets his ex-classmate and the extraordinary story of a pusher begins. The film is double-sided: from the one hand there is an interesting plot and characters of the “St. Petersburgs underworld”, from the other hand – a peculiar pocket culture encyclopedia, because the whole film is constructed from reminiscences and references to the great masterpieces of cinema and literature.
