From the director of Leviathan, the film is initially a portrait of a failed marriage in its awful final stages. Boris (Rozin) and Zhenaya (Spivak) are separating, already with new partners but still living in the same flat with their twelve year old son Alyosha who is the cause and symptom of their divorce. After a particularly nasty row, Alyosha disappears. The couple’s unhappiness is magnified by rage and self hatred.

“… rock-solid yet leisurely in its observance, grounded yet metaphorical – a quietly commanding film.”

Description

Starring Maryana Spivak, Marina Vasilyeva, Aleksey Rozin and Matvey Novikov.

The police, uninterested and bureaucratic, are happy to cede responsibility for the search to volunteers and the wrecks and abandoned buildings of the search add to the feeling of desolation.
Reports from mortuaries and hospitals of boys matching Alyosha’s protract their ordeal.

The film confronts us with the most ghastly of crises – was the lovelessness of their family to blame? Does the moral paucity of the state play its part?
The Russia of Zvyagintsev’s film looks barren and bleak but its brilliance and compassion are compelling.

Directed by Andrey Zvyagintsev. 127 minutes. 2017.
