M.O.ZH. / THE MAN IN THE ORANGE JACKET

THE MAN IN THE ORANGE JACKET
by Aik Karapetian
Country: Latvia
Year: 2014
Duration: 71'


The workers in a navy yard have lost their jobs. The owner has sold the shipyard, throwing them into despair. But another feeling takes hold: anger. One of the workers, dressed in his work clothes and carrying his tools of the trade, sneaks into the house where the rich industrialist and his beautiful companion live and kills them in cold blood. He then hides the bodies and takes over their luxurious lifestyle. But this plunge into a new and intoxicating world, made of five-star restaurants, fast cars and beautiful escorts, is short-lived. Someone is spying on him in the dark of the night, opening the door to paranoia.

Declaration

film director

“I watched a large number of horror movies, realizing what I liked and disliked. I decided that the film should be made in the way I, as a fan of this genre, would want to watch it. So the emphasis was put on atmosphere and suspense, those were the elements I lacked as a viewer in the modern horror movies. I wanted the audience to be completely immersed in a world of these characters, to breathe the same air.”
