Steppenwolf – Watch the teaser trailer for Adilkhan Yerzhanov’s new thriller

A brutal story of an unlikely duo who will stop at nothing to find what they are looking for. Tamara is searching for her missing son in a small town consumed by riots and violence. In a desperate attempt to get him back, she decides to offer a reward to an amoral former investigator whose methods prove to be sadistic. Determined, Tamara decides to complete the mission with the nihilistic detective, no matter what the cost..

Kazakh director Adilkhan Yerzhanov (Yellow Cat, The Owners, A Dark-Dark Man) returns with Steppenwolf. The film is inspired by Hermann Hesse’s novel “Steppenwolf,” first published in German in 1927, and two famous Westerns of the 1950s — John Ford’s The Searchers,” and Howard Hawks “Red River.”

It stars Azamat Nigmanov, Yerkin Gubashev, and Nurbek Mukushev.

“The film is also inspired by Samurai films, in which the character from the very beginning is heading towards his death. You know there is only one ending for that character — this is often the structure of Samurai films,” Yerzhanov tells Variety.

“His past and future are one and the same. He is already on this path. If he had not been involved with the woman and trying to save the child, he would have faced another situation that has the same result. His destiny is dictated already.”
