Movie Info

Director Alix Lambert explores the intricate language of Russian Criminal Tattoos with this vivid look at a vanishing practice as presented by the prisoners, guards, and criminologists who know it best. Filmed inside some of Russia's roughest prisons - including the notorious White Swan - this documentary focuses on the penitentiary and criminal environments where the practice once thrived. As the brutal history of The Zone and The Code of Thieves of the vory v zakone opens up before your very eyes, you'll bear witness to an entire history of violence told exclusively through the art of the tattoo.

Audience Reviews for The Mark of Cain


This was an interesting war movie in that it really was character driven. It also was very specifically driven by two characters rather than say a unit. What I liked about it was that it was a compelling and interesting story and left the characters with different moral challenges that they had to deal with and attempt to over come it. They each responded differently and in often conflicting manners which was interesting to watch. The problem was that it was very predictable and the character motives change much too frequently. One instance you'd hate them, the other you'd feel for them which is tough to do because I was constantly shifting my point of view. This movie is definitely worth a watch.
