Shultes
Filmfest 2008

25-year-old Lesha Shultes, a former athlete seriously injured in a car accident, becomes a pickpocket. This is his only way of communicating with the outside world. He lives a lonely life with his sickly mother, steals, and occasionally visits his younger brother in the army. Love, friendship, and affection have no place in Shultes' life. His only encounter with human feelings occurs when he gets a video from a young woman he robbed earlier. This contact with a stranger's life and feelings leads Shultes to rash decisions. Quinzaine des réalisateurs, Cannes 2008
