Morphine is a 2008 Russian film by Aleksei Balabanov.
The film takes place in late autumn and early winter of 1917 during the events of October Revolution and the beginning of Russian Civil War. A young Russian doctor called Mikhail Polyakov (Leonid Bichevin) arrives at a small hospital in a remote village in Yaroslavl Governorate. Having freshly graduated from medical school, with little experience, he is the only doctor in the rural district. He works hard, earning the respect of his small staff (one paramedic and two nurses).
Songs performed by Alexander Vertinsky "Tango Magnolia", "Snow Lullaby", "Cocainetka" were used as soundtracks for the film.
