Moscow Chill is the directorial debut of talented writer (and in full disclosure, good friend), Chris Solimine. The beautifully shot film is the off-beat story of a modern, Robin Hood-like computer hacker who is smuggled to Russia to work for post-Soviet Gangsters. Norman Reedus, of Boondock Saints fame, brings just the right blend of loneliness and brashness to Ray Perso, the sole American tossed into an excellent cast of Russian actors. He is a fish out of water in a place where friends and enemies alike will use you for your talents. The very hot soundtrack, which features Russian hip-hop and folk music, most likely new to American ears, also adds to the rich atmosphere of the film. Just off its European theatrical run, and released on DVD in North America on April 21st, Moscow Chill’s combination of dark humor and violence with a touching sincerity, offers up a view of the Russian underworld never quite seen on film before.
