More on the subject matter in The Student:

Veniamin, a teenager in the midst of a mystical crisis, has his mother, schoolmates and entire high school turned upside down by his questions.
– Can girls go to their swimming classes in bikinis?
– Does sex education have a place in school?
– Should the theory of evolution be taught as part of the Natural Sciences?
The adults are soon overwhelmed by the certitudes of the youngster who swears only by Scripture.
No one but Elena, his biology teacher, will alone challenge him on his own ground.

You really have to admire the single-minded focus that Veniamin exhibits throughout the trailer, even-though it seems to lead him down the road of ruin. What if Veniamin was that dedicated to mathematics or to helping the poor? That would be an even more interesting film.

On the original title of The Student:

The original Russian title “(M)uchenik”, with the ‘m’ in parentheses, is a play on words, a pun, combining the Russian word “muchenik”, which means “martyr”, with the Russian word “uchenik”, which means “student”. Because the Russian pun would not be understood, and there is no way to translate it, the simplified title “Uchenik”, or “The Student”, was used at the Cannes Film Festival 2016.
