Plot – Spoilers:
Demidov is a WW-II hero, famous for an iconic photograph of him with the Soviet flag during the conquest of Berlin. Smug about his professional and personal future with an ostensibly devoted wife, Demidov is soon forced to question the system he staunchly defends, when it comes calling home.

What begins as a Stalin-era Soviet military story with actors speaking accented English, soon migrates towards the crimes of serial killer Andrei Chikatilo. Chikatilo’s killings actually spanned a later era, but of what use is creative liberty, if you can’t use it.

For those more interested in Chikatilo, Citizen X is more devoted to his crimes.

    After watching I think, 20 Effedup movies with horrible endings this one had the best ending. Leo’s wife is a tuff bird and a true surviver. I do not know if this was based on a true story or not but, great acting was exhibited in this . Keep up the great work at Effedup I’ll be watching Citizen X next.
