Anton and Vlad are a handsome, happy couple living in modern day Russia - peacefully making a life for themselves in the comfortable privacy of their Moscow apartment. But everything is about to change. Driving home after taking a wrong turn, they confront what they believe is a vicious gay bashing. For Anton, the burden of what they may have witnessed outweighs Vlad's fear of probing too deeply into the incident. Anton talks his skeptical lover into launching their own risky amateur investigation into the hate crime, inevitably leading grim consequences. An important, topical drama Stand is both essential and gripping.

Reasons to Buy

  1. This slow-burning film is highly topical, given the intense worldwide outrage over Russia's mistreatment of gays and the country's 2013 federal law prohibiting homosexual "propaganda."

  3. French-born director-producer-writer Jonathan Taieb, tackling very big ideas on a small budget, aims to convince us that we are ultimately defined more by our actions than by our ideas.

With the recent worldwide condemnation of Russia's rash of anti-gay violence Jonathan Taieb's film is very timely. The film is not just about the problems in Russia but it also an interesting story. We meet Anton (Renat Shuteev), who faces a moral di... Read More
