Storyline

St. Petersburg, Russia, today. Special agents Plakhov, Rogov, Dukalis, Solovets, and Larin are installing the skids for businessman Arkadi Bogolepov. They suspect that Bogolepov is involved in a murder and some other unresolved crimes. Bogolepov's office is under surveillance. But Bogolepov is making a stellar political career. He is buying the media, feeding the poor, supporting the seniors and, most importantly, he promises to wipe out the mafia, if he is elected to the City Hall. Special agents are stretched out. Their resources are inferior to the mafia's, and some people in the law enforcement are also corrupt. But the agents don't give up. Written by Steve Shelokhonov

Heroes of our time
18 October 2002 | by (Samara, Russia) – See all my reviews

The same characters that can be found in "Menty" are present in this film, but the place of action is Chechnya. The film combines the merits of a TV series and action thriller, and few of their drawbacks. The film does not picture dead-earnest cops, but has a wonderful touch of humour. At the same time it is not a comic series about war. It's very true to life, as it has both funny and gloomy sides. The actors who are cast in the film are very popular in Russia, and their characters are a mark of the time. They can truly be called heroes of our time.
