Gruz 200

Aleksey Balabanov Russia, 2007

Counterfeit's rating of the film Cargo 200

With this Balabanov goes much further than he ever did. The film is not aesthetically beautiful at all. In some moments it may seem repulsive but it gives a perfect image of Russia in the late 80s. It's a very symbolic film with laid-back but still realistic and harsh metaphors. Absolutely a must.
