In September 1999 a bomb leveled a Moscow apartment, wounding Yelena Morozova and killing her mother and boyfriend. Authorities attributed the crime to Chechen rebels, but when Morozova's sister Tanya, an emigre living in Milwaukee, returned to Russia she found compelling evidence that the state police staged the bombing to justify military escalation against the Chechens and prop up the legitimacy of the Putin regime. Andrei Nekrasov's chronicle of the sisters' search for the truth lacks focus and discipline, but the raw materials he's collected are still spellbinding. In English and subtitled Russian. 105 min.
