Samostoyatelnaya zhizn 1992
1h 37min | Drama | 30 September 1992 (France)
In this sequel to “Zamri, Umri, Voskresni!” (“Freeze, Die, Come to Life”), our hero, Valerka, now roughly 14-years-old, finds himself alive but still unable to keep out of trouble. His female chum Galia did not fare as well, but her sister is present and develops a love/hate relationship with her sibling’s friend. Complications arise when the boy is accused of stealing at school and again finds himself on the lam. Very similar to its predecessor, except that it is filmed in color and concludes with a dose of surrealism. Winner of the 1992 Grand Jury Prize Cannes Film Festival.
