Trailerama: Kak ya provyol etim letom (How I Ended This Summer)

February 22, 2010

With Roads to Koktebel, writer-director Alexei Popogrebsky established himself as one of Russian #inema’s most promising talents. His se#ond film looks just as intriguing. A young college student repairs for the summer to a remote polar station in the Russian Arctic, manned by a crusty old-timer whose tour of duty is about to come to an end. The isolation is initially exhilerating. Then the pair start to get on each other’s nerves, a situation exacerbated by the boy’s slip-ups. How is this summer going to end? Something tells us it won’t be pretty. The thriller won three Silver Bears (for both lead actors and cinematographer Pavel Kostomarov) at the 2010 Berlin Film Festival. With Sergei Puskepalis, Grigory Dobrygin.
