About the film

NO-ONE is a family revenge story that turns into a parable of eternal return and historical guilt. It looks like an unusual anti-version of Shakespeare’s “Othello”, where the Renaissance characters and events are depicted in a parallel reality in Russia during the military coup of 1991. Venice is replaced by Moscow, Cyprus – by Crimea; the Venetian general Othello becomes a general of the Russian secret police and the insidious schemer Iago, Othello’s standard-bearer – an elite student, nephew of the Russian general. All this in a strange way corresponds to Shakespeare’s oeuvre, but at some point the events and character relations as if instigated by irresistible forces of fate, start to move away from the familiar plot. The main character is a brilliantly educated and artistically gifted general serving a cruel and blood-drenched organization; he harbors no illusions about the world around him, constantly changes masks and roles, always remaining at the top. Nevertheless, karmic forces pull events and people around him into a deadly vortex of infidelities and defeats. Betrayals cling to one another, and the inevitable becomes reality.

NO-ONE by Lev and Vladimir Prudkin triumphs in Vienna

NO-ONE by Lev and Vladimir Prudkin triumphs in Vienna

The narrative is a solid well-knit chronicle of the collapse of a family. In the idyllic setting, with the sea, beach, cliffs, high-class sanatorium at Crimian resort, light dresses , — there is conflict, discord. Treason, spying and skeletons in closets displace the peaceful resort.

NO-ONE: A different view on the collapse of the USSR

Just as the Soviet empire was balancing in August 1991 on the verge of the return of the hermetic totalitarian power of the party elite and the war of all against all, the film balances between genres of drama, phantasmagoria, mystery play and high tragedy.
