Available Now On VOD: Adilkhan Yerzhanov’s ‘A Dark, Dark Man’

Available now on VOD from MHz Choice and director Adilkhan Yerzhanov (The Owners) is a new crime film called A Dark, Dark Man. The film stars Daniar Alshinov (Herd Immunity), Dinara Baktybaeva (The Gentle Indifference), and Teoman Khos (Yellow Cat).


Conceived as a Kazakh version of a French film noir, A Dark, Dark Man starts with the murder of a small boy and is set in a bleak yet artfully framed beautiful landscape – rural and dusty rather than urban and gritty. The protagonist is Bekzat (Daniar Alshinov), a young policeman who is already a jaded and cynical accomplice to the corruption all around him. His slow-motion awakening to confronting the corrupt system is inspired almost against his will by the sudden appearance of an outside journalist, Ariana (Dinara Baktybaeva). Bekzat’s pursuit of the real murderer is flawed and a jagged zigzag towards justice, encountering plenty of blood and wrongdoing along the way.
