Lars Von Trier and Coen brothers can retire. A must!

Lars Von Trier and Coen brothers can retire. A must!

This is the best Balabanov's movie so far. May be it is not appreciated yet (just 6.9 points) but it is a masterpiece. A very honest look back at the 80's, very dark of course - not the Red Square and Pokrovsky Cathedral, sorry. I liked his movie "Of Freaks and Men", was disappointed by "Zhmurki", but with "Cargo" Balabanov is back and better than ever.

This is a very important movie especially for Russians who are rethinking now their Soviet past, but for Americans also, for obvious reasons... The term "cargo 200" was given to soldiers who found their way back to the motherland in zinc coffins.
