Plot synopsis
‘Gop-stop’ is Russian criminal slang for a mugging, a street robbery that uses violence or threats of violence. Nevertheless, this comedy is not about Russian crooks, and its principal characters are ‘gopniki’: a term that refers to a sub-culture of Russian petty swindlers, which around 90% of Russian provincial youth aspire to join; people who somehow will find some way that will allow them to make a couple of hundred dollars. The screenwriter does not ridicule how these guys soup up their cheap cars, cut the hair on their foreheads, or wear Chinese tracksuits – this is just the way they live. The irony lies in theirmotivations, in the fact that human greed sometimes overshadows everything else. The director Pavel Bardin, creator of the controversial movie Russia 88 about Russian fascists, which did not receive a wide showing in Russia, sticks to his beliefs and is shooting his new movie for a very modest sum – half a million dollars, in fact. The movie’s soundtrack features contributions by Russian rap musicians famous for their savage lyrics.
