My Joy Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A routine run for a truck driver turns into a nightmare he can't escape in this psychological drama from filmmaker [[Performer~P243643~Sergei Loznitsa~sergeiloznitsa]]. Georgy ([[Performer~P661477~Viktor Nemets~viktornemets]]) is driving a load of freight into Russia when, after an unpleasant encounter with the police at a border crossing, he finds himself giving a lift to a strange old man ([[Performer~P247831~Vladimir Golovin~vladimirgolovin]]) with disturbing stories about his younger days in the army. After next picking up a young woman ([[Performer~P433793~Olga Shuvalova~olgashuvalova]]) who works as a prostitute and is wary of the territory, Georgy finds himself lost, and despite asking some homeless men for help, he's less sure than he was before of how to make his way back where he belongs. As brutal images of violence and alienation cross the screen, Georgy's odyssey becomes darker and more desperate until it reaches an unexpected conclusion. Schastye Moe (aka My Joy) was an official selection at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
