Who would dare to find and catch an Angara maniac who left behind a bloody trail of many bodies?
In the quiet and peaceful town of Rubezhnoye, bloody murders of girls suddenly begin to occur. Young metropolitan investigator Eugene Klyuchevskaya arrives in the city in order to check local rumors about the appearance of a serial killer. However, many residents are unhappy with the arrival of the capital's guest: like many people of the 90s living in a provincial town, they do not trust anyone, and everyone has more than one secret hidden in the closet.
Director and shooting
The director's place of the project was taken by Konstantin Bogomolov, known for such works as: "Gobsek", "Container". The producer was Irina Sosnovaya ("Rzhev: The Unknown Battle of George Zhukov", "Brest: Serf Heroes", "The White House, Black Smoke", "Container").
Konstantin Bogomolov says that in the “Good Man” the film crew tried to investigate the evil that can be hidden in every person:
“In our new project, we turn to a certain extent to the study of the dark side of man. And so we switch to another genre - the psychological thriller genre. I am also glad that the series became a continuation of the study of our own profession and at the same time a continuation of relations with a great producer and creative team which I met on "The Keepers", and with which I continue to work with pleasure. I’m sure we will do a lot more cool and interesting. "
Producer Irina Sosnovaya personally met with the "Angarsk maniac" in order to better convey his character in the project:
“The dialogue turned out to be very open. Mikhail Popkov spoke literally about his whole life: childhood, growing up, psychological trauma that prompted him to kill. In our project, we want to show much more than just bloody killings. It became clear that the plans to shoot the series are not so much about crimes, how much about the society as a whole, which gave birth to a bloody killer because of its patriarchal ideologies. I have no doubt that the film crew will make an important social discovery and attract a wide audience to discuss this issue. Bloem. "
