Russian Spleen
Хандра

The sophomore effort from rising directorial star Alexey Kamynin, Russian Spleen is a frenetic and subversive reimagining of the millennial buddy comedy set over the course of a single day. Unemployed Denya, DJ Vitalik, and frustrated director Lyosha live together in a chaotic Moscow apartment. Like any young urbanites, they’re searching for the good life – true love, creative fulfilment, and financial security. Is that too much to ask? Drawing on his own real-life experiences and taking swipes at Russian cinema past and present, as well as the nation’s contemporary political absurdity, Kamynin conjures up a dizzying portrait of directionless modern life.
