Morphine (2008 - 110min)


Directed by Aleksei Balabanov

Written by Mikhail Bulgakov, Sergei Bodrov, Jr.

Starring Leonid Bichevin, Ingeborga Dapkūnaitė, Andrei Panin

Cinematography by Alexandr Simonov


"Powerful and bizarre tale of the young medical doctor sliding into the abyss of drug addiction as the country around him slides into the horrors of civil war. Even so the revolution and the war is hardly shown in the movie (which is set in a small village), one could feel it's dark presence in every scene, every dialogue. Well captures the spirit of autobiographical novels of Mikhail Bulgakov, Russia's greatest and most controversial author of the 20th century. Strongly recommended for everyone who enjoys Bulgakov, Dostoevsky, classical Russian literature and history. Also, it's a great tribute to the director/screenwriter Sergei Bodrov Jr. who died so tragically at the height of his career." (by Cat Behemoth)
