With the connivance of the school authorities robbery, prostitution and crime are rife. When Sergey falls in love he’s set for an inevitable confrontation with those that rule his world. Dazzlingly executed and hugely original, with startling use of intense sexuality and violence, this is a powerful, audacious rethinking of cinema’s language of sight and sound.
“What an intriguing film.” Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
