Alexey Balabanovs Film I Also Want Released in Russia

New work by the most provocative Russian film director Alexey Balabanov  - the realistic fairy tale I Also Want - is released in Russia on Thursday.

      The main characters of the movie drive to the Belltower of Happiness, which is rumored to be located somewhere between St. Petersburg and Uglich, in a zone of increased radiation and eternal winter. A bandit (Alexander Mosin) learned about the Belltower of Happiness from his companion and told about it to a musician (Oleg Garkusha), who also came to want happiness. Together they stopped by at a hospital for the bandit’s friend - alcoholic Matvei (Yury Matveev). The latter one took with him his aged father. On the road four of them met a prostitute escaped from her procurer, and all together they went to look for the belltower.

      According to Balabanov, the plan of the film appeared in autumn last year. It took a long time to write the scenario, but shootings took place quickly.

      The shooting was made in the Tver Region, where a half-ruined church – an embodiment of the belltower – had been found.
