One oddball meets another with the expected unpredictable results in this comedy from Russian filmmaker Boris Khlebnikov. Jenya (Evgeny Syty) is a good-natured man who is more than a bit short on both ambition and common sense. Born and raised in Belarus, Jenya goes to Moscow in search of work, and while he doesn't distinguish himself professionally, he lucks into some money and decides to come home to share his good fortune. En route, Jenya is robbed and has no money or shoes when he arrives in Belarus. Jenya is befriended by a strange elderly man (Sergei Dreiden) who believes it is his duty to expose and remedy the wickedness of the world, and Jenya becomes his new partner in crime. Though the old man's daughter (Anna Mikhalkova) tries to keep an eye on him, his increasingly bizarre crusade makes it hard for her to watch him all the time, and as the old man wages a small-scale battle against a railroad agent and indulges in high-minded petty crime, Jenya is by his side -- at least when he isn't too sleepy or tucking into a square meal. Sumashedshaya Pomosh (aka Help Gone Mad) was an official selection at the 2009 BFI London Film Festival.
