Full film details

Capturing the kinetic energy of contemporary Moscow, director Johnny O’Reilly cleverly interweaves five compelling character narratives in a provocative statement on Putin’s Russia.

Moscow Never Sleeps is a multi-narrative drama about the hidden bonds that connects us all.

The film dives headlong into the volatile intersections of contemporary Moscow and the intimate lives of five people: An entrepreneur whose business empire comes under siege by powerful bureaucrats, a teenage girl mired in the misery of a broken home, A young man forced to chose between his girlfriend and his grandmother; a beautiful singer torn apart by the pursuit of two men and an ailing film star who gets embroiled in a bizarre kidnapping.

Over the course of one day, their lives will change forever.

These stories weave through Moscow’s choked cityscape as it celebrates its birthday with a massive fireworks display. They reveal the unrestrained energy of Europe’s biggest city and the cruelty and beauty of the Russian spirit.

The film stars many of Russia’s best-known actors including Alexey Serebriakov (Leviathan). It was written and directed by Irish filmmaker, Johnny O’Reilly who has lived in Moscow for 12 years. The film aims to give audiences a unique view of Russian humanity, to present a true impression of a vibrant culture overshadowed by egregious policies of a corrupt government and to capture the pulsating spirit of Europe’s biggest city.
