Despair and desperation are the bread and butter of Russian art. I guess that’s what you get with winters like that? During WW2, Soviet partisans try not to starve, and get themselves caught in grim situations. COME AND SEEĀ  was the first course, STALKER the next, so put on your bibs and feast on this.
