Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: There's something profoundly affecting in its ugly truths, a sliver that gets under the skin and stays there.
Fresh: Director Zvyagintsev, who co-wrote the film, is intent on showing how calamity doesn't necessarily unite people - it can push them further apart.
Fresh: This is a film that's likely to stick with you because of its exceptional intensity.
Fresh: The movie's about two people - and, by extension, the culture and country of which they're a part - confronting the fact that they're no longer recognizably human.
...но что случилось?
The premise occurs more than we would like to think., The movie is like watching paint dry, that being said-keep your finger on FF.
Trying Too Hard
Considering his beginnings with The Return, a masterly film, this work is lifeless.
The boy disappears, and takes all drama with him, never to return.
We are left with mom and dad divorced and indifferent.
The rest is arty softcore sex, and the scene in Russia the director has spent a decade pushing. It's bleak, cold, colorless.
He's become a documentarian.
He doesn't like Russia, though that's his canvas.
So, he's run dry.
Talent lost in political effort so he can attract Western attention.
This work is begging for help.
A big talent wasted.
