Branded

Synopsis: The film starts with documentary-style flashbacks showing Misha's rise to a powerful marketing executive. Now in Moscow 2017, Misha is a powerful marketing executive working to spread Western brands, and like the businesses he works for nothing will stop him in his greed, until the imprisonment and death of an overweight girl undergoing extensive plastic surgery to become skinny. Following a vision in which Misha sacrifices a heifer to God, he begins to receive strange visions depicting the brands control over people. He returns to work and guided by these visions, Misha attempts to stop the growth of the brands in post-Communist Russia by encouraging the brand to attack each other in their advertising campaigns. There is some debate whether Misha believes that the worship of global brands is Idolatry and his visions depicting the brands are controlling people causing them to sin, or whether his belief is that monopoly is evil and his intention is to create a Western style free-market

it's about... it's about business.

It's about advertising.

It's about Coke versus Pepsi.

Now, we will start

a serious advertising agency,

and we will make a lot of money.

The client list is going to be

the new political candidates,

the business elite,

movie producers,

and all you have to do...

is keep your eyes and ears

trained on them and report.

Report what?

Whatever you see.

Whatever you hear.

That's it.

- Poor bastard.

- That's my investor.

Yeah.

You're going to be needing

a new investor.

Picture it, Misha.

Your new job is just...

spreading the principles

of freedom and democracy.

And so began Misha's career

as a marketer-spy.

Over the next 15 years,

he designed the first Russian campaigns

for a host of western brands,

like the now-famous slogan for The Burger:

"The Taste of Freedom"

and he furnished Bob

with reports on his clients.

And because of you

and your incredible work...

this big beautiful country is now

almost a democracy.

Okay, so look, Abby.

Why aren't you just producing

this reality show yourself?

Why do you think?

'Cause I don't have the money!

ow much does it cost?

Like $750,000.

What's with your air conditioning

system, anyway?

This is like a brand-new car!

What's she doing?

What are you doing?

Same as everybody else.

This suit is murder.

You mind looking out the window?

But then that girl will think I'm staring at her.

Doesn't matter, you Russian men

are all supposed to be pigs, anyway.

But the way the Russian women

go around here,

like prima ballerinas in skin-tight clothing,

honest, regular American girl

doesn't stand a chance.

There, all done.

What would you say

to doing the show with me?

We are called xtreme Cosmetics.

And this is a real story about a real girl.

Well, she's what you call overweight,
