The cult film, which obtained the recognition of all of Russia, was pulled apart into quotes and a long time ago. People have watched it to this very day. The film Brat (Brother) is the best and most famous work of the Russian director Aleksei Balabanov.
The typical wild 90s. Danila Bagrov was transferred to the reserve. He came back to his native provincial city. His mother advises him to come to Piter to his elder brother. It turned out that his brother Vitya works as a hired killer and fears to take the next order. So he gave it to his younger brother.
To watch the film Brat means to become thoroughly engrossed in the dismal, depressed, but incredibly atmospheric Aleksei Balabanov's world – gray tones, naturalness, undisguised honesty, transparent melancholy, and genius soundtracks.
A continuation of the cult story about Danila Bagrov, film called Brat-2, was released in 2000. Taking part in a program on TV, Danila meets his friends by Chechnya. One of them was suddenly killed. Danila knows that guy had troubles due to his brother-hockey player in America. Bagrov should look into it. He flies to America with his brother. Now his photo is passed around among the Russian and American mafia.
Brat-2 is a criminal comedy. The plot of this part is again built on Bagrov's desire to recreate justice. He wants to take away unfairly earned money from an American businessman and pay it back to his dead friend's brother. The film is full of spectacular scenes and effervescent dialogs.
