Storyline

A huge black SUV is rolling down a desolate summer road. In it are the Bandit, his friend Matthew with his old father, the Musician, and a beautiful girl. They are looking for the Bell Tower of Happiness which, according to rumors, is located somewhere between St. Petersburg and Uglich, near an abandoned nuclear power plant. The Bell Tower takes people away; not everyone, however. But each person in the huge black vehicle believes that he will be one of the chosen. Written by CTB.ru

An insight into Russian spirit
29 March 2013 | by kuschilopSee all my reviews

This film is a brilliant view of what is Russia today. A hundred years ago, it was a large empire, with people who had faith and sense of life. Today, it's a raped country: 70-th year rule of the Soviet Union have left people without a ground under their feet. But still these people want to be happy, and they want this very much.

The movie shows all this with great care. You can see Saint-Petersburg, a once brilliant empire's capital, and measly life of its current citizens. One is a killer, another is a bad musician. Next one is an alcoholic, -- as he puts is, because he is bored. Then, there's a poor old man -- notice a carriage at the door that old people use to drive goods from the shops home. And also an unfortunate prostitute.

These people don't talk very much, just because there's nothing left to talk about. They go to a place with no return way -- without any doubt, as they have nothing to loose. All they possess, is a wish to be happy. And may be some of them really deserve it...
