The intertwined stories of a gay teenager in modern Moscow and a transgender dancer in the 1980s Soviet Union. The teenager, struggling with his sexuality, befriends a mysterious girl, both vying for the attention of the popular boy in school. The film switches between their present-day challenges and the past love affair of the transgender dancer and a Soviet general, highlighting the timeless struggles of identity, acceptance, and love.

 

 

Ksenia Ratushnaya’s debut feature “Outlaw” is a daring exploration of LGBT themes in a country where such topics are often taboo. The film stars Victor Tarasenko, Lisa Kashintseva, and Gleb Kalyuzhny, and it alternates between modern-day Moscow and the Soviet Union of the 1980s. In the present, a young man comes to terms with his homosexuality while seeking acceptance from his peers. In the past, a transgender dancer’s affair with a Soviet general unfolds. Drawing inspiration from classical art and literature, “Outlaw” is a poetically surreal film that challenges societal norms and sheds light on the lives of those marginalized for their identities.

Ksenia Ratushnaya’s “Outlaw” is a cinematic milestone for Russian LGBT cinema, tackling themes of sexuality, identity, and societal rejection with a nuanced and empathetic approach. Set against the backdrop of contemporary Moscow and the 1980s Soviet Union, the film offers a dual narrative that is both poignant and thought-provoking.

In the present day, we follow a high-school student grappling with his burgeoning homosexuality. His journey is marked by the internal conflict between his true self and his desire for acceptance from the mainstream, represented by the school’s most popular boy, Alpha. This storyline is tenderly portrayed by Victor Tarasenko, whose performance captures the vulnerability and confusion of adolescence.

The mysterious girl he befriends, played by Lisa Kashintseva, embodies the role of the outlaw – a character who revels in her outsider status and challenges societal norms with abandon. Their relationship adds a layer of complexity to the protagonist’s journey, as they both seek validation and connection in a world that often ostracizes them.

Interwoven with this narrative is the story of Nina, a transgender dancer in the 1980s Soviet Union. Evgeny Shwartzman delivers a haunting performance as Nina, whose love affair with a Soviet general (Vitaly Kudryavtsev) unfolds against a backdrop of political repression and societal prejudice. This historical subplot provides a stark contrast to the present-day storyline, highlighting the persistent struggles faced by the LGBT community across different eras.

Ratushnaya’s direction is both visually and thematically ambitious. Drawing inspiration from works like Hieronymus Bosch’s “Garden of Earthly Delights,” Plato’s “Symposium,” and Boccaccio’s “Decameron,” she crafts a film that is richly layered and poetically surreal. The cinematography captures the stark realities and fleeting moments of beauty in the characters’ lives, while the narrative seamlessly shifts between past and present.

Despite the challenges posed by Russia’s restrictive laws on LGBT representation in media, “Outlaw” boldly addresses these themes with sensitivity and authenticity. The film’s private financing and independent production underscore the resilience and determination of its creators to tell these vital stories.

“Outlaw” is a landmark film that not only contributes to the visibility of LGBT narratives in Russian cinema but also resonates universally with its themes of love, identity, and the quest for acceptance. It is a testament to the power of storytelling to challenge societal norms and inspire empathy and understanding.
