Storyline

The year is 2013 and, with the abolition of the death penalty, prisons are overflowing across the globe presenting a major problem for the authorities. The solution is to ship a consignment of them to a far-flung, freezing god-forsaken place and let them colonize it. When they find themselves deposited at their new home, the authorities leave a pile of numbered keys with which to unlock their chains, and then retreat to a safe distance. All hell breaks loose and among scenes of carnage, the Russians kill the Chechens with uncontrolled acts of murderous violence. Written by Noel Kardaris

Best Russian movie of all new Russian movies!
1 February 2009 | by twiggyraSee all my reviews

At least Russian film companies stopped filming movies about "alcoholics in kitchen" and criminal-respected action-comedy. New century of Russian movies has began! This film contain beautiful scenes with nature, it showing experiments with human-factor and basic instincts. For me, it was pleasure to see good operator work and good actors. Also I was surprised to see one of the popular American actors at his favorite place - as prisoner! So everybody who was thinking that Russian movies suck - you must change your mind after watching this picture. In 2009 Russia will surprise us with a lot of good movies, but "Novaya Zemlya" have earned my 10 points without any questions!
