3 August 2018 | by grivas15See all my reviews

Basically what you read in the review, is about the storyline: "Vitka Chesnok is an orphan who dreams about breaking free from his family life. Vitka meets his criminal handicapped father. He decides to take him to a nursing home. He doesn't have a clue of what adventures they are about to face." This is what a Russian Tarantino-wanna be would have made, only without a worthy soundtrack. E Tkachuk is indeed a charismatic actor. It is a good sample of not commercial Russian cinema. It is not easy to feel for such characters as these father and son, but eventually it is some fun to watch.
