Language: Russian //Subtitles: English

Kirill Sokolov’s feature film debut tells the story of Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov), a young man with an unusually resistant anatomy. Hammer-in-hand, he arrives at his girlfriend’s dad’s house to avenge the child abuse she claims to have suffered at his hands.

What the young man fails to consider is that Andrei (Vitaliy Khaev), her dad, happens to be a tough and corrupt policeman with no intention of going down without giving his all to this gruesome fight. As the film goes on, a colourful mosaic of secondary stories, individuals, generational clashes and deceptions will make it very difficult for anyone to actually leave the apartment alive. 

An original, action-filled blood fest that wants to bring down Russian patriarchy, Why Don’t You Just Die delivers a bold, magnetic, ultra-violent crime comedy with heavy brushes of Tarantino and an ambitious edit worthy of Edgar Wright’s school. A film you are not likely to forget anytime soon.
