Like his photos, Bratkov's films are always sharp and almost painfully realistic. In the dramatically titled video Life is Pain Bratkov filmed an Ukrainian prostitute who occasionally makes some extra cash as a chanteuse in a nightclub; her gut-wrenching repertory, bizarre make-up trompe-l’oeuil skin-colored shirt unite to exclaim the basic truth of her act – that life is pain indeed.
