An exuberant game with addictive potential
In Roulettenburg, money, gambling addiction and obsessive love rule. The eternal illusion: "Tomorrow, tomorrow everything will have an end! The rich heiress is supposed to fix it. But while everyone is waiting for the redemptive news of her death, she turns up alive and well and gambles away even the last ruble. 'The Gambler' is a masterpiece, written as if in a frenzy. It was born of a diabolical pact between Dostoevsky and his publisher: either he delivers the novel within a few weeks, or face serfdom. Director Pınar Karabulut is also a master of pushing boundaries. She tests the classics of world literature for their pop-cultural suitability and confronts them with queerness.
