Set behind the Iron Curtain, this Cannes award-winning film by Pavel Lounguine (The Island, Tycoon: A New Russian,) was hailed by The New York Times as "a haunting travelogue filled with raw, pitiless glimpses of a troubled society."

The movie is about the Artist and the Layman, about materialism and spirituality, about creatures who crawl and creatures who fly, about the weak sensitive soul and the strong but dull soul. These two intersect, influence each other and form a paradoxial partnership. The two main characters go through a 180 degree transformation and go back.
I think it's one of the most amazing works of the Russian cinama in the 90's. Petr Mamonov, a true musician, is playing himself and his performance is stellar.
