Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Stange, dark and clever, with a sense of Rabelaisian excess and moral murkiness that's tempered by an ambiguous but unexpectedly forceful moral message, the film address personal responsibility, cruelty and creativity in shady times ..."
‑ Hannah McGill, The List
"Blackly comic, deceptively deadpan Russian drama that's both surprisingly moving and contains moments of genuinely shocking violence ..."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"It's full of idiosyncratic, almost suicidal directorial choices - a noodly guitar score, inexpressive, doll-like actors - yet weirdly cuts to the heart of a country that's been taken over by such unlovely characters."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Allegorical, violent, blackly comic and occasionally bewildering."
‑ , Scotsman
"Fits all the richness and lurid eccentricity of a Scorsese gang epic into 83 pocket-sized minutes."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"A potent black comedy with the gentle touch of a razor blade."
‑ David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
