Loveless Rated 15


Dir. Andrey Zvyagintsev. Russia, 2017. 2h 7m. Russian/subs. Starring Yanina Hope, Maryana Spivak, Alexei Rozin, Varvara Shmykova, Matvey Novikov, Daria Pisareva.

The director of Leviathan takes another scathing swipe at contemporary Russian values with an eerie thriller about a soon-to-be-divorced couple dealing with their son’s disappearance. Nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at this year's Oscars.

‘The small story at hand offers an opaque but pitiless critique on the director's native Russia at large.’ ★★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

Zvagyintsev's bold confidence in the articulacy of a striking image and subtly suggestive sound is evident from the very opening moments.’ Geoff Andrew, Sight and Sound Magazine
