ZERO is an 0 sucking in a young deserter, a casino victim and three heroin brothers. That is a destiny, a mixture of objectives and desires of heroes. That is a lifestyle balancing on the edge - bullets, numbers and needles.

Finally, a Lithuanian directed movie I am proud to present to the international community.
Not another down-tempo super metaphoric berlin-festival-wannabe 'theather play' but a true global-standard entertainment.
Nothing much original: several B grade stars, lots of Guy Ritchie style swear-run-shoot scenes and Kusturica style humor. However, finally, two hours well spent with no sense of obligation to "support local produce".
The movie begins in London but moves out to Lithuania shortly after. To a disgrace (and even shock) to some Lithuanians, Vilnius is portrayed as a dirty and corrupted city with criminal elements roaming the streets day and night. Well, its wasn't that bad even in the 90s but, well, Balcan'ish chaos is much more entertaining to watch as compared to Scandinavian'ish modern and calm reality. Countryside is also shown at its ('somewhere in Siberia') extreme and reminded me the Russian movies, such as Osobennosti natsionalnoy rybalki (1998).
Don't trust the IMDb rating unless its has >20k votes, as the first 10k will be voted by patriot Lithuanians. In any way, to sum up, its a good film to eat some popcorn and to laugh with (or at) the eastern europeans.
