This movie is about soccer hooligans, the most aggressive and violent soccer aficionados. They are an exclusive group, the elite of all soccer fans. Whoever they may be in their everyday lives-college students, bankers, musicians, or car mechanics-they are a "firm". It's easy to get into a firm, but once you're in, it's for life. There's no going back. The movie is based on actual events.Written by
The first movie about football hooligans in Russia
A decent movie about the life of the football hooligans in Russia. Four leaders of the one of the top firms of FC Spartak Moscow are confused: There's a rat in the crew. Police has been way too lucky cracking down most of their operations. Fights, wide shots of the terraces during the derby days, love triangle, friendship, betrayal, death, "casual" clothes style, ethnics tensions in today's Moscow- it's all here. Real football ex-hooligans contributed to the script and played small parts in the film. Many of the scenes are based on real events that happened not so long ago. Hope the movie will be translated properly into English, so international viewers can have some idea about Russian version of Green Street Hooligans, Football Factory, The Firm, etc.
