Against the backdrop of a raw, pitiless, troubled society, an alcoholic intellectual Jewish musician and a bitter, tormented, vaguely anti-Semitic taxi driver play out their class conflicts and shared longings. The brutality of their world eloquently mirrors their unhappiness, and hints at the forces behind it.

This 1990 film is a visually stunning portrait of a Moscow on the brink of passive changes.
