Kiev, the 1980s: Andrej Evilenko, an apparently mild-mannered teacher, is actually a bloodthirsty and impotent serial killer with hypnotic abilities, who is protected because of his ties with the KGB. The debut film by David Grieco, assistant director for Pasolini and Bertolucci, is the adaptation - part thriller and part metaphor - of his novel The Communist Who Ate Children, inspired by the real-life crimes of Andrej Chikatilo, the Butcher of Rostov. With Malcolm McDowell in the lead role.
