A great cast and a brutal reality without any cheap cinematic thrills. New Yorkers used to say (that is, those who knew) that those who escaped the Soviet Union, before and after its dissolution at the end of the Eighties, were some of the most ruthless survivors of an oppressive state, one which had made them into desperate and opportunistic gangster-capitalists. The strange suffering (but enduring) past of Russia's history hangs heavy in the streets of Little Odessa (Brooklyn's Brighton Beach adjacent to Coney Island) with its barren shore in winter, its boardwalk scoured by wind, sand and snow, its petty thuggery, elevated train lines, constricted community, and crushed aspirations.
