Target (Mishen)

de Alexander Zeldovich


Russia, year 2020. The country is radiant with happiness since a super highway connecting Guanzhou with Paris has brought it prosperity and stability. Our main characters belong to the Russian elite: Viktor is the minister of natural resources; Zoya, his wife; Mitya, a television celebrity; and Nikolay, one of the men responsible for the super highway. They have everything, but time is taking its toll on them. Together they decide to go to a secret base that promises its visitors that it has the secret to eternal youth. A dystopian film with the workmanship of a Spielberg and the philosophic traces of Tarkovsky that smells of sensation of the year.
