Russia | 2019 | dir. Alexander Lungin, with Alexander Kuznetsov, Aleksey Filimonov, Fyodor Lavrov, Evgeniy Sytyy, Elena Makhova

Two men who live on the outskirts of Moscow and work as cash collectors. They are young and all they have in the world is each other. Spending their lives moving money for other people, they spend their free time at a poetry class or watching cock fights at a dorm for migrant workers. Attempts to find poetry in the prosaic world lead the heroes to the conclusion that the only poetic move they can make is to rob a bank.

Followed by a Q&A with actor Alexander Kuznetsov and film director Alexander Lungin
