Seven intimate scenes from the bed. Stories about love and hate, funny and occasionally painful dialogues and much very familiar human behaviour.
Playing the Victim
Valja has recently graduated and earns his living by playing the victim in reconstructions of bizarre crimes. The absurd situations in which he finds himself start to influence his real life. Sharp observations of the Small Man, with plenty of black humour and a touch of slapstick.
According to statistics, every year some thirty thousand people vanish without a trace in Russia. A detective story with a difference: young man vanishes in provincial town and grief-stricken mother turns to townsfolk for help. As her despair grows, she undergoes a spiritual transformation.
Punky biopic about the legendary band Kino and the Leningrad underground music scene in the early 1980s. Full of surrealistic interludes and rebellious energy.
