Named Baron…

Named Baron… is a story of a man who was once lost and forgotten, who traded his birth name and became simply the Baron…

Born in exile, a modest Jewish boy Josef turns into a cruel and cynical  “thief in law”, ruthless both with his own kind and the outsiders – if someone dares to get in his way. The film continually shifts between various time periods, locations and story lines – streets of a modern metropolis give place to wooden sidewalks of a provincial town of the early 50s, high society receptions alternate with gangster gatherings, Mediterranean landscapes – with dirty station houses in Russian provincial towns, the office of Stalin’s NKVD investigator – with a maximum security colony. The lead part is played by the famous Georgian actor NodarMgaloblishvili (Formula of love – count Caliostro), who is a really immense in the role of a tough gangster.
