Doch (The Daughter)


110 min minutes

Proof the no one investigates evil (or spiritual depravity) better than the Russians can be found in this film by Alexander Kasatkin and Natalia Nazarova. Set in a small town, the movie is about a serial killer who preys upon pretty teenage girls. He does not rape his victims but tempts them booze and kills them with a single blow to the head. Because the police don’t have the means or brains to solve the murders, all the community can do is wait for the next corpse to appear by the river or in some bushes. The film’s pace is a little slow, the mood bleak, the actors great, and its ending meets the standards of a good crime story. (CHARLES MUDEDE)
