Plot synopsis
An eminent writer as well as a great mystificateur, Victor Pelevin intrigues not only through his post-modern prose, but also through his anonymity. He is a writer-phantom who has never appeared in public, but has made a great impression on the minds of the Moscow intelligencia. In the film, the most famous Russian novelists, critics, and publishers talk not about Pelevin’s prose but about the writer himself. Among the narrators are Natalya Ivanova, Vladimir Sorokin, Dmitry Bykov, and others.
