Stereotypes about Russia. manifesto for sexual minorities rights. Central European myth. revenge. and cliches. a film who reflects good intentions and confuse way to use them. because something missing and, except the last scene, all is just an improvisation without not impressive result. you can define it as mediocre or decent. but the story and performances are not more than sketches who are only tools for a supericial horror with social manifesto potential.
