Nominated for Un Certain Regard Award at Cannes 2016. A pitch black comedy drama about a young man’s spiritual awakening and rebellion against the world around him. Contemporary Russia. High school student Veniamin is convinced that the world has been lost to evil and starts to challenge the morals and beliefs of the adults around him. They are soon overwhelmed by Veniamin’s dogmatic behaviour and blind obedience to the teachings of the bible. Only Elena, his biology teacher, decides to challenge him. ★★★★ "A seductive satire of Russian Orthodox dogma" - Phil Hoad, The Guardian ★★★★ "Meaty Russian arthouse drama with a satirical streak" - Cath Clarke, Time Out
