Eastern Promises (2007)

A Russian teenager, living in London, dies during childbirth but leaves clues to a midwife in her journal, that could tie her child to a rape involving a violent Russian mob family.


Why on earth they didn't voiced 'russians' by native speakers? For russian-speaking audience their talking is just ridiculous. The whole movie is full of stereotypes although Viggo was very good indeed.

A solid gritty mob drama focused on a fast-rising mobster driver played by Viggo Mortensen. Strong performances all around and Cronenberg's sure-footed direction make this a 21st century classic.
