Bleak and hopeless, but a great ride across rural post-Soviet Russia, My Joy uses folk tale conventions to tell it's modern tale of self-reliance and ruthless opportunism.

I don't fully understand the story of this movie. I'm not sure if this is my fault, or the director's, or perhaps that it was intended.

I'm not sure if this is my fault, or the director's, or perhaps that it was intended. But I will say that being an American, it is a very interesting look into a completely different world that feels very real and dynamic. Part of this is just because the movie is about, and shot in Russia. So maybe I enjoy this in the way I would enjoy incredibly candid slides from someone's vacation to Moscow. It would have to be a very bleak vacation, of course. One where they were repeatedly robbed and taken advantage of by members of the police and military. But whatever the cause, I must admit, I enjoyed the movie and found it to be an interesting and authentic-feeling glimpse into a country where life is much more chaotic, unfair, and difficult. A country where roads literally lead nowhere. Expand
