Sons of Bitches (Russian: Сукины дети, translit. Sukiny deti) is a 1990 Soviet drama film directed by Leonid Filatov. It was entered into the 17th Moscow International Film Festival.[1]


The plot of the film is based on real historical situation in Taganka Theater, when its leader Yuri Lyubimov left the USSR (1984), and made a number of anti-Party statements, after which he was removed from the management of the theater and deprived of citizenship. Sons of bitches tells how the troupe has apprehended these events and the pressure on them, the state, and also shows the events that have not happened – strike actors strike, the threat of self-immolation. The House sent a functionary from the Ministry – Yuri Mikhailovich, which is to restore order in the rebellious cultural institution. The story ends in tragedy – the death of one of the protesters.
