The plot is set in modern Moscow, probably in the second half of the 1990s, with New Russians, Hummer H1 jeeps, bribery, violence, truckfuls of tinned stew as a dowry, and so on. The film is quite far from the novel's subject, but still keeps to the main storyline. It features Fyodor Bondarchuk as Myshkin, and a soundtrack by DJ Groove, one of the most popular Russian DJs (appeared in film as taxi driver).

In Russian, Даун (Down) primarily refers to a person with Down syndrome, or, colloquially, to anyone retarded or just stupid, so it is similar to Idiot; while Хаус (House) refers to House music, which is used extensively in the film. The name is also a reference to Russian subcultures like e.g. businessmen, hackers and hippies, heavily using words borrowed from English and transliterated into Russian alphabet.
