Watch The Opening Scene From ‘Why Don’t You Just Die!’

 

 

The coronavirus pandemic prevented the April 10th theatrical release of Why Don’t You Just Die! But never fear, Arrow Video has just given the film a home release date. That’s not all, we’ve also got the first scene to share with you.

Making his feature debut, writer-director Kirill Sokolov presents a rousing tale of family, modern relationships and the dark places they can take you to when things turn sour.
In the film, “Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov) has just one objective: to gain entry to his girlfriend’s parents’ apartment and kill her father Andrey (Vitaliy Khaev) with a hammer to restore her honor. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey’s attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don’t quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable – not to mention ruthless – opponent than he anticipated… and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die.”
Despite our exaggerated use of genre tropes and all the flashy effects, Why Don’t You Just Die! remains, for me, an incredibly personal and sincere story. The film’s inherent violence is the result of reflection on the realities of life in Russia, modern relationships, and societal attitudes. The gallows humor which pervades the film is the only true reaction whatsoever to all of this. The film is intended as an emotional rollercoaster, making the audience laugh, cry, and laugh again – but then immediately feel a sense of unease for having laughed.” Sokolov stated ahead of the film’s release.”
Why Don’t You Just Die! will be available nationwide on Digital HD April 20th.
