Russia has always bee associated in my mind with three things. Philosophy, crime, and corruption. The reason for all of these things comes from reading Doestoesvsky. And this film draws on all of these things as it follows a philosophy student who commits a crime because he grew up with the institutional corruption of the Soviet-era, where "eat or be eaten" was a common strain of thought. Maybe it's not as deep as "Crime and Punishment," but that's alright. We can forgive the film for that.
