Storyline

Vasiliy Lébedev was a young peasant from Crimea who decided to go to Siberia to work in a coal mine. With his sense of opportunity, his lack of scruples and taking advantage of the end of Perestroika, he quickly landed a position at the helm of one of the most important Power Plants in Siberia. After the fall of the old USSR-and thanks to his own cunning-he became the sole owner of the Power Plant and of one of the largest coal deposits in Russia, amassing an immense fortune. An introverted character and lover of the paranormal sciences, he travelled constantly, obsessed with finding clues about the existence of "UFOs" and portals to the "beyond". On one of his last trips to the US, he bought a performance by a German artist, the artist himself and his coyote (an indispensible part of the piece), only to then transport them secretly and illegally to Russia and lock them up in a warehouse outside his now defunct Power Plant in Siberia. After the death of Vasiliy, the artist is still ... Written by AM Films SL

Abhorrent movie
24 January 2015 | by zomgmeisterSee all my reviews

The worst movie I saw, and I saw a lot of bad movies. It is ugly, boring and stupid. Nothing even remotely interesting happens on screen. Characters are disgusting, their activities are vomit-inducing. Portrayal of Siberia in February is typical for subtropical country denizens, who do not know what *winter* IS.

Move logic is flawed. It was way easier to kill the guardian right away, and to burn and/or hide his body in that desolate place. Scouting from bright orange boat on a lake in gray landscape is not very ninja. I could continue, but that's unnecessary - all that happens on screen is either disgusting or ridiculous. Or both.

Ending is totally lackluster, there are no culmination, characters are empty.

Do not watch this movie under any circumstances. You won't get anything good from it. This movie should be forgotten from existence.
