Peaceful Michail is out hunting with his dog in the Russian wilderness. By coincidence he ends up in the middle of a gunfight and saves the slightly younger Andrei, who is being pursued by his former partners in crime. Michail is forced to reluctantly accompany the fleeing Andrei. On the face of it, Live! is a captivating, well constructed thriller, where the flight across the harsh, deserted landscape accentuates the tension between the two men. Simultaneously, it is an existential chamber play about guilt, morals and ethics. How far is an individual prepared to go in order to survive? Yuri Bykov makes a powerful debut with a drama that combines the toughness of a taut thriller with important, universal issues.
