Courier (1986)
by Karin Shakhnazarov

Special prize winner at the 15th Moscow Film Festival, Shakhnazarov’s witty comedy Courier, the Russian equivalent of The Breakfast Club, follows teenager Ivan Miroshnikov, who, dealing with his parents’ divorce and failing to make it into university, get a job as a delivery boy. He is ironic, careless, provocative. He meets Adidas clad Katya, daughter of a famous professor.  He falls for her. They start to date but his interest in her fades when he realises she isn’t really a rebel. He returns to his old friends, and the certainty of being called up for the draft.
