Sergei and Simon have to deliver a suitcase full of heroin to Mikhalych or else they will be killed. There is one minor detail: the only problem-solving technique they are familiar with is a shot in the head.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
A pair of exceedingly dumb gangster's lose a suitcase full of heroin and need to get it back. Bloody mayhem ensues. Aleksey Balabanov partly satirizes the 90's era Russian gangster flicks that made his name internationally, but also satirizes power relations in Russian society. I get the distinct feeling that this would feel like sharper satire to me if I was Russian.
Film minore un cazzo, qui siamo ai vertici della comicità pulp di Balabanov : situazioni,dialoghi e personaggi surreali ( come scordarsi l'etiope o il figlio obeso del capo??) che nel loro insieme diventano qualcosa di memorabile,una sorta di pulp fiction russo! Peccato che Balabanov ci abbia lasciati così presto...
