Synopsis

„Härg“ pälvis Vene filmide festivalil Sotšis parima filmi preemia.

It’s the year 1997. There are empty shop counters, economical instability and criminal dramas, all this spreads out of almost every corner.

A young leader of a criminal gang, Anton Bykov, by the nickname “Bull” is forced to provide for his family by any means necessary. Anton was taken to the police station after a neighbourhood firefight. One of the Moscow criminal leaders helps him to get out, in return he asks the character to do a small but dangerous favor.

Former ballet dancer and graduate of VGIK Boris Akopov offers up an exceptionally mature feature debut, a taut drama whose energetic soundtrack, compulsive narrative rhythm and raw performances faithfully capture the hostile spirit of post-Soviet Russia.
