This is a fantastic debut from the very talented writer/director Suzie Halewood. The film charts the spiritual journey undertaken by two Russian immigrants, Spiker (Andrei Chadov) and Cobakka (Ben Barnes), who come to London to dodge the draft and fill their pockets. Barnes, in what is undoubtedly his best role to date, gives an outstanding performance and the pairing with talented Russian actor, Andrei Chadov makes for one of the best double acts since `Withnail and I'. The film shows a side of London rarely seen and combines poignant drama with some hilarious comedy. Definitely a must-see DVD!
