The Stroll

Veteran documentarian Alexey Uchitel directed this frenetically paced feature about a day in the life of three Saint Petersburg youths with true guerrilla aplomb, shooting it all in the streets with a handheld camera. Out walking, the beautiful Olya (Irina Pegova) is brazenly approached by Alyosha (Pavel Barshak), who tries to convince her of love at first sight. Initially leery, Olya warms to him, and soon they are planning a midnight sojourn to Moscow. The tone of the story darkens after Alyosha summons his best friend, Petya (Yevgeny Tsyganov), to whom Olya is also attracted. Though the last ten minutes are a bit of a letdown, the first 80 are a knockout. In Russian with subtitles. 90 min.
