Loveless (15)

Russia/2017/122mins/15 Dir: Andrey Zvyagintsev With: Yanina Hope, Maryana Spivak, Alexei Rozin

Zhenya and Boris are going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration and bitter recrimination. Already embarking on new lives, they are impatient to start again, even if it means threatening to abandon their 12-year-old son Alyosha, who after witnessing one of their fights, he disappears. A brilliantly bleak and hypnotic thriller examining the microcosm of familial dysfunction against wider societal malaise; aligning the internal apocalypse of divorce with the metaphysical ills of modern Russia.

"Zvyagintsev’s bold confidence in the articulacy of a striking image and subtly suggestive sound is evident from the very opening moments… a piercing and poignant expression of simple cinematic poetry.”"
