Directed by Aleksei Balabanov | 2010

With Mikhail Skryabin, Yuriy Matveev

“Full of idiosyncratic, almost suicidal directorial choices, yet weirdly this film cuts to the heart of its country.”
—The Guardian

Deep in the bowels of a seedy, decaying St. Petersburg, Ivan (Skryabin), a Siberian Yakut and Afghan war veteran, patiently tends to his fiery furnace, quietly looking the other way while local mobsters deliver fresh corpses for incineration. Balabanov’s blackest of black comedies—shot in defiantly grubby video, teeming with blunt nudity and violence, and set to an ironically breezy bossa nova soundtrack—forges a distinct blend of the sneeringly nihilistic and unsettlingly hilarious.
