Legendary student film starring Akvarium frontman Boris Grebenshikov, one of Russian rock’s greatest vocalists and lyricists.
Like the Akvarium song with which it shares a title and protagonist, the movie is a day-in-the-life mood piece which doubles as a crucial document of Soviet bohemian culture at the beginning of the 1980s. Cameraman / co-writer / co-director Aleksandr Ilkhovsky went on to become a cinematographer (4, Target).
This circulated in a shitty bootleg for years, but was restored in 2013. Someone’s uploaded it to YT, though without subtitles.
