Trivia

Aleksey Balabanov wrote the role of Captain Zhurov for Evgeniy Mironov but the latter refused to star in "Gruz 200", as well as Sergey Makovetskiy and Kirill Pirogov who also collaborated with Balabanov on his previous films. Makovetskiy even recommended that Balabanov should not make "Gruz 200" at all after he read the script. The role of Captain Zhurov went to Aleksey Poluyan, although Balabanov originally planned only a small role for him. See more »

Dark gem of Russian cinema
20 July 2018 | by perica-43151See all my reviews

This is a brilliant if dark movie. Showing corruption of the Soviet system in stark and horrific colors and the high price it put on the human soul, this cynical piece of movie making is based on a true story. And it rings true. More horrific than most horror movies, it is well worth a watch. It may scar you, so beware. But it is one hell of a great movie.
