Ya tozhe khochu 2012
A metaphysical parable for the discontent felt by those under the ominous cloud of both social unrest and the crumbling European economy, Alexei Balahanov's "Me Too" is a surprisingly droll take on Andrei Tarkovsky's "Stalker" (1979), examining our inherent longing for happiness behind the mundane veil of despondency.

Somewhere in Russia there is a chapel. A strange, rapture-like disaster happened there, spiriting away most of the village's population, and plunging the surrounding countryside into a nuclear winter, covered with deadly radiation.

Legend has it that the chapel still spirits up people on occasion, to instant happiness. Therefore pilgrims keep trying to reach the chapel. But you never return: those who reach the chapel either are spirited up, or die of the radiation. And there is no telling who is chosen and who is not...

One day, five passengers decide to just take a car, go to the chapel and reach happiness or die trying. Among the people in the group are: a mafia hitman, a musician, an old man, a prostitute, and, sometimes, a prophet. Which of them will make it to happiness?
