Duska (2007)



Duska is the imaginative story of Bob (Gène Bervoets), who has the best part of his life behind him. He is addicted to film, has visited several festivals as a film critic and is now working on his own screenplay. His muse and inspiration is the attractive, young and unattainable cashier (Sylvia Hoeks) from the movie theatre across the street. But when Bob’s desire for the girl finally becomes reality and she ends up at his house, a man named Duska (Sergei Makovetsky) suddenly appears at his door. The timing couldn’t be worse. Bob had met this friendly loser once at a Russian film festival, and in a reckless mood had invited him to come and visit if he was in the neighbourhood. That was the worst thing he could have done; Duska is not about to leave Bob alone, resulting in an original tragicomedy full of surprising twists.
