THE SUIT
Original Title:Shik
Russia / Germany 2003
Director: Bhaktiar Khudoinazarov

Three friends spend their time playing pranks and committing the odd robbery. Underneath their tough exterior, however, they are normal, average teenagers with problems, doubts and insecurities.

All three dream of escaping their drab existence. Once, while walking along the coast, they see a Gucci suit in a window of a posh clothing store and decide they must have it. But their attempt to steal the suit fails because of the tight security.

They have to resort to a few other scams so that they can use their 'hard earned' cash to procure the suit. Once in their possession, each one takes turns at wearing it, not only on romantic associations but also to worm their way into high society.

Finally, the efforts one of the friends to woo a young lady pays off. But at a particularly blissful moment, misfortune strikes and changes their lives in quite unexpected ways.
