Humans. Beasts / Ludi. Zveri (Ruslan Sorokin, 2016)


Ludi. Zveri is a short story about a group of children’s entertainers, two of whom are a couple in the middle of breaking up.

Not much to say: this novella is absolutely brilliant. Great story – simple, but comprehensive; great dialogs; wonderful acting; very fitting music. Ruslan Sorokin (who also made King Lear) is definitely a name I’d be following in the future; he’s an amazing directorial gift.

Discovering such works, barely known yet carrying a touch of genius, might be one of my favourite things in the world.

There you go, enjoy:
