October sees the UK release of Bigga Than Ben: A Russian’s Guide to Ripping Off London, a film about the wild exploits of two freewheeling Russians as they embark on a headlong charge through the seedy underworld of the multi-cultural melting pot that is London.
Based on the ward-winning diaries of Pavel Tetersky and Sergei Sakin, the film premiered to a sell out audience in Moscow and won accolades at this year’s Edinburgh Film Festival.
Starring Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian) and Russian heartthrob Andrei Chadov (Russkoye) the film also features music by Pete Doherty and Joe Strummer.
The film is described as “a darkly comic look at what it takes to survive as an outsider in a harsh, unforgiving, pricey, yet fascinating metropolis” and, we hear, is rather good.
Bigga Than Ben: A Russian’s Guide to Ripping Off is released October 10th
