Klassiki are proud to present a live conversation with fast-rising star, Aleksandr Kuznetsov, who plays the lead in our Pick of the Week, Why Don’t you Just Die?

 

Kuznetsov will be recognisable to Klassiki members from his stellar performance in Pavel Lungin’s Great Poetry, as well as award-winning performances in Aleksandr Gorchilin’s debut Acid, Kirill Serebrennikov’s Leto and the first ever Russian-language Netflix series Better Than Us. 

In this bleak and funny feature debut by Kirill Sokolov, Matvei goes on a quest to kill his girlfriend’s abusive father. Instead he stumbles into a web of allegations and attempted murder. Tarantino-like carnage cartwheels across the screen as father and prospective son-in-law use anything at hand to destroy the other.
