Director Guka Omarova brings an evocative feel for place and a detailed regard for character to his directorial debut, a deeply moving coming-of-age story set in modern-day Kazakhstan. Not even fifteen years old, "Schizo" (Olzhas Nusuppaev) makes money by organizing boxing tournaments for a local gang. When a mismatched fighter dies in the ring, Schizo feels the suffocating circumstances of poverty and violence close in on him. "A stark and stylistic hybrid of the Dardennes' formal austerity and Terrence Malick's lyricism" (Slant Magazine). In Russian with English subtitles.
