DAU

by Ilya Khrzhanovskiy

synopsis

Dau, a tall and awkward-looking Soviet scientist, is a man with two passions: women and physics. He lives the high life during the golden age of Soviet physics, while the rest of the country is starving. Sent to prison for openly criticizing Stalin, he find himself forced to join the team developing the Soviet thermonuclear bomb. Love, sex, intrigue and anguish intertwine with politics. Stalin's purges, the bomb and finally the Nobel prize. Base on life of Lev Landau (1908-1968).
