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 »

return to the beginning
18 June 2011 | by padimore99See all my reviews

After watching the film to the end, i launched myself off the chair, toward the television and returned to the beginning - so i could reassure myself that the word 'based on true events' had been written there. He (Alexey balbanov) may have been messing with us or not, but then the complete repulsiveness and disbelief at the fact that human beings are capable of such things, was the most riveting thing. The film and characters deliver a slice of outright realism, social decay, dark and twisted tales i have ever seen. And nowadays in times unsurprising storytelling, this film shocked the hell out of me. It wasn't the disgust of Captain Zhurov nor the helplessness of Angelika (my name-sake) that irritated me, but the sheer intertwining and coincidence that could be experienced in the film. Everyone crossed everyone else's path. This, like others have said, is a very very dark, sick, twisted movie... in a good way. That it keeps you interested and intrigued. I loved it, only with an open mind.
