Winner of the Official Competition Jury Prize at the 2017 Cannes International Film Festival.
The searing new drama from Russian master Andrey Zvyagintsev (Leviathan, Elena, The Return), is a razor-sharp portrayal of a marriage, and a country, in a state of collapse.
Zhenya and Boris are going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration and recriminations. Already embarking on new lives, each with a new partner, they are impatient to start again, to turn the page – even if it means threatening to abandon their 12-year-old son Alyosha. Until, after witnessing one of their fights, Alyosha disappears…
