Based on the first of a trilogy by Tom Rob Smith and set in the Stalin era of the Soviet Union. The plot is about an idealistic pro-Stalin security officer who decides to investigate a series of child murders in a country where supposedly this sort of crime doesn't exist. The state would not hear of the existence of a child murderer let alone a serial killer. He gets demoted and exiled but decides, with just the help of his wife, to continue pursuing the case.

Excellent, excellent film. How "Furious 7" received such great reviews and this film did not is beyond me. Definitely pay to watch it. Do a great film justice and don't let it die with Furious pissing on its grave.
44 Child makes you actually feel as if you were transported back to soviet Russia and gives you the feeling of helpless in an unjust government. It was banned from Russia for a reason. Tom Hardy gives an excellent performance and you find yourself feeling sympathy yet cheering for the success of this man who appears emotionless towards acts of monstrous brutalities and a moral compass.
