Trivia

The Soviet rock band "Kino" that collapsed after the death of its soloist Viktor Tsoy is still popular in Russia today. To make a scene with "Kino" playing live, Aleksey Balabanov chose four people: three musicians out of different little-known bands of St. Petersburg plus one professional actor. Viktor Tsoy's part was played by Niyaz Sadykov who gave concerts with his band called "Niyaz" in a St. Petersburg club "Kamchatka". "Niyaz" only played songs by Tsoy and only in "Kamchatka". Sadykov was chosen to play Tsoy after assistant director Anastasiya Pavlovich visited a concert by "Niyaz" to film it and tell the band that Balabanov wanted to invite them. Balabanov says there were several bands in St. Petersburg whose frontmen imitated Tsoy and he chose Sadykov because the latter was most like Tsoy, "in plastics and everything." The crew wanted to make the scene with the song "Elektrichka" but the record they had was too flawed and they chose the studio version of "Vremya yest, a deneg net", one of Balabanov's favorite songs by "Kino". Sadykov was too short and had to stand on a special tray when the scene was shot. All the equipment used in the scene was fake. Only the guitar was real, but it was dyed to match Tsoy's photos. According to Sadykov, the makeup of the "band" took several hours but the filming with a crowd of extras only lasted for 10 or 15 minutes. See more »

An odd trip
22 June 2009 | by (Maastricht, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The title of the film is a code name for the return home of a body from the battle field. The reason why this title is chosen becomes clear early in the film - but the build of the film would allow a lot of different titles and each one of them would be matching for this film goes far beyond a body returning from the battle field. As the story rolls the film switches back and forth between a number of people and tells their respective tales - and the way all of them connect in one way or the other. The stories are not altogether happy but are not too dark either so the film doesn't turn too dreary. It is very grim though. As each of the stories turns to its conclusion one can not escape the biting cold reality of them.

Played out well enough to be believable and quick enough to be entertaining this film does pretty well. It's ending is fitting, its after-taste is bitter. But, above all, it's an interesting watch.
