A surreal, haunting 'fairytale'.
17 June 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is a difficult film to describe. On the face of it, a story of a provincial thug, hired by a loan shark to retrieve money owed by a defaulter in Moscow. Told to kill the man if he does not pay, he makes the mistake of giving him time to pay, with a tragic result. Meantime, he has formed a relationship, of sorts, with a 16 year old homeless girl who discards him when his usefulness is over. A grim story played out against the backdrop of Moscow's underclasses.

What makes the film interesting is the way the director is able to make you care about generally un-sympathetic characters; the surreal timeline and environment; and the staggeringly good soundtrack by Mongol Shuudan.
