WHY DON’T YOU JUST DIE

WHY 2Director: Kirill Sokolov | Russia | 2018 | 1hr 35 mins

Matvei is madly in love with his girlfriend Olya; so much so that when she makes the outrageous request for him to murder her father, he willingly obliges. Armed with a hammer, Matvei arrives at the family’s apartment, tragically unaware of the fact that all hell is about to break loose. Blood is spilled before the coffee is served, secrets are revealed, and true motives are brought to light. As the layers of deceit begin to unravel, Matvei finds himself at the centre of an epic final showdown – will he make it out alive?

This chaotic, rapid-fire black comedy showcases impeccable comic timing and excruciating levels of gore. Its depiction of violence is unapologetically slapstick, colourful and joyfully messy, and narrative twists abound as this death match plays out in all its gory glory.
