EIN KLEMPNER FÜR TAUSEND SEELEN
Germany 2011 – Director: Anastasia Vinokurova – Original language: russian – Subtitles: english
… Several thousand kilometres of waste pipe, toilet bowls and stories. Andrej is a plumber and, armed with his pistol and his arsenal of tools, he is prepared for every emergency and in complete control of his everyday life, which mostly consists of pierced water pipes, overflowing toilets and badly installed pipework. In the suburbs of Moscow, his workplace is a high-rise housing estate, which stretches over around 5 square kilometres, and encompasses 6 tower blocks and a total of 4,000 homes. The obvious dilapidation within the area is evident not only in the buildings. The crumbling of society is also written all over the residents’ faces. Adele Kohout
