Storyline

A shared army past and a shared ideal of serving their country bring four friends together. They go on to serve in the OMON, the Russian Special Police Squad, leading honest lives in the turbulent present, and dreaming of a better future. The young tend to be idealistic. The protagonist (Alexey Mantsigyn) thinks: "I am the sovereign's watchdog, I will tear anyone to pieces with my teeth, there is power and fury in me, honesty in my eyes, and my friends are by my side." He walks up to the mirror but instead of his eyes he sees empty sockets, deadly anguish instead of love, and his own betrayal multiplied by four instead of his friends. Fate comes in the shape of a femme fatale (Vilma Kutavichute), leaving them no chance. Or almost none. In a small two-door car, wounded, with broken joints, barely alive, the four friends make their way around their town or their own dream. With nothing but a prayer to keep them going. Amid the white Russian snow. Written by Anonymous

intriguing glimpse into Russia
3 August 2014 | by Raven-1969See all my reviews

Aglaya and Herman meet in a Russian nightclub and soon dream of running away together. Each of them has significant baggage however. Herman is in a police unit that is more like a band of lightly disciplined goons. At night little changes except for clothes, for he and his former military buddies continue to roam the streets getting in fights just like they do during the day. In Aglaya's case, she happens to be a jealous mob boss' girlfriend. Aglaya and Herman attempt to break loose from their distressing and forlorn situations. The film offers an intriguing glimpse into Russia on the eve of the 21st century, yet it relies too much on action and fight scenes at the expense of depth, the couple's chemistry, cinematography and dialogue. Seen at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
