The first feature by young Russian director Kirill Sokolov is a jaw-dropping crime-thriller with gallons of gore, super-stylish visuals and a very wicked sense of humour.

Revenge, blackmail and spectacularly dysfunctional family dynamics are the dishes served up in 29-year-old Kirill Sokolov’s dazzling debut. The deceptively simple story centres on Matvei, a nervous young guy who arrives at a Moscow apartment with a hammer in his hand and murder on his mind. Inside is Andrei, a hulking police detective and father of Matvei’s girlfriend, Olya. It’s not long before all blood-spurting hell breaks loose and Sokolov’s non-linear screenplay gives us the meticulously mapped-out dope on everyone involved in the mounting mayhem. This furiously-paced fireball is fabulously performed by a game cast and marks the arrival of an exciting new talent on the world cinema stage.

Building a crazed 'Looney Tunes' mood with cartoon-bright colors, kinetic camera moves and zippy fast cuts, Sokolov keeps ramping up the savagery to absurdly excessive levels.
Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
Sokolov brings a distinctively Russian flavour to his amoral microverse, and directs with an endlessly entertaining, larger-than-life brio that is all his own.
Anton Bitel, SciFiNow
