Storyline

In Moscow, Anton is out of ideas for his "Ghost" novels about a hit man, based on old news accounts. At a book signing, a man buys Anton's latest; then, on a street below, Anton sees the man murder a witness in an upcoming trial. Days later, the killer chats up Anton at a café, offering ideas for plots. Anton accepts and his writing improves. Meanwhile, he has a troubled relationship with Mika: she's forgiving, but his drinking and late-night writing sessions drive her away. Plus, he spends precious little time with his son, who's in an institution. Slowly, the hit man raises the ante with Anton: how far will a writer go to understand his fictional character?

Good
10 January 2009 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I have taken pleasure in viewing of the given Russian film that recently happens not often. We have an interesting plot, good work of actors. Shortly about a plot – not so successfully all develops at the young writer Anton Prachenko, without results trying to deduce on a wide look the book "Domovoy" about the hired killer about whom he has read in what that of the newspaper publication. In publishing house it is not especially claimed. And suddenly, he meets the hired killer and sees, how it makes, the ruthless murders. Further it it is banal gets to a police station as the witness of crimes …. But, suddenly the professional murderer finds the writer and between them certain mutual relations … About actors are fastened. Habensky has once again proved that he excellently plays drunkards. Moshkov as always at the high level. Most less, Hamatova was pleasant, is somehow fresh it played. Unfortunately, in the film scenario there are some holes. What for «Domovoy» has stolen the writer? It has executed all, enemies have killed him, and militiamen nevertheless on the writer and have written off. And «Domovoy» in chocolate. But, there is no it confuses more and more, operates somehow not logically … It is necessary to notice still that in a film music was remembered, it is a little unusual to our films. The result in a film is separate scenes calculated on the spectator who has come to look cinema, instead of having filled up with meal has received the Russian art absurd chewed to aversion. It is an excellent film and it not on once.

Thanks for attention.
