Synopsis

A series of odd coincidences has left Lukas, an interpreter for an OSCE military checkpoint inspection tour, stranded near a small southern Ukrainian steppe town. With nowhere to turn, this city boy finds shelter at the home of a colorful local named Vova.

Our take

Ukrainian director Roman Bondarchuk has leapt to his fictional debut with an arresting eye and unpredictable story. A mordant, semi-surreal comedy as much skewering international intervention into his war-torn country as it does idiosyncratic citizens, it boldly mixes the political with the comical.

Critics reviews

An impressively shot drama marbled with welcome notes of absurdist comedy and wry humor.
