Description

With great narrative brio, director Antonio Lukich tells the story of twin brothers, living in central Ukraine, who go on a road trip to find their Yugoslavian father who is rumored to be in Luxembourg. As with most great road movies, the preamble and the journey are more important than the destination as Kolya and Vasya are shown as troublemaking kids who eventually become, respectively, a bus driver and a cop. When darkly funny circumstances find them both at loose ends, they embark on the search for their dad to hopefully get some answers as to why their lives lack meaning and purpose. Lukich has crafted a rollicking and engaging film with a melancholic soul that traverses as much emotional terrain as geographical.

Director Antonio Lukich
