OUTLAW tells the story of gay teen Nikita (Viktor Tarasenko), who is in love with the most popular boy in his school (Gleb Kalyuzhnyy). Rebellious outlaw (Elizaveta Kashintseva), to whom anything appears to be permissible, watches on as their relationship develops. Simultaneously, we follow the tragic love story of a transgender dancer Nina (Evgeny Shwartzman) and a Soviet general (Vitaly Kudryavtsev), set in 1985.
The first filmed appearance of Evgeny Shwartzman, who portrays Nina (the redheaded trans entertainer character who falls in mutual love with the younger, one star general character who is cheating on his never seen wife). See more »
=== Don't Be Tempted By Description And The Pic!! Attempts 'Arthouse' But Just Weird And Messy! ===
I can only think that the relatively high rating is for the nudity, or the sex, which just looks ridiculous (except perhaps,for one solo scene), and not exciting in the slightest.
Weird introduction to start with, and if you get past that then well done.
Lots of long dialogues about how an artist, or writer or their work, is a metaphor for certain situations. Very pretentious with lots of swirling about, singing boring songs and then random violence.
The description probably leads you to think that there will be a sort of love story between the two guys, but there is simply intimidation, anger and abuse.
None of the 'plots' (and i use that word in VERY loose terms) come to anything, and it is just frustrating, tedious and messy.
