"Showcases Russia's reigning cinematic maverick at the breathtaking peak of his powers"
—The Hollywood Reporter
Tarkovsky meets Kaurismäki in this dark, deadpan riff on the revered filmmaker’s 1979 sci-fi film Stalker. A ragtag gaggle of thugs, punk rockers, and societal outcasts embark on a pilgrimage to a mystical “Bell Tower of Happiness” in search of enlightenment. “As intoxicatingly uncompromised and bracingly direct as a treble of straight Stolichnaya..." (The Hollywood Reporter).
