The legendary “Brat” (“Brother”) director is known for his violent movies, and if the flaming skull on his upcoming film’s poster might be taken as evidence that “Kochegar” will be equally as challenging as “Gruz 200” (“Cargo 200”). The action takes place in St. Petersburg in the mid-‘90s, where a fireman spends his free time writing short stories on an old typewriter. But the man’s creative process is often interrupted by visits from some of the city’s strangest characters.
