Our take

This Oscar®-nominated film from renowned auteur Andrey Zvyagintsev (Leviathan) is a crucial indictment of modern Russia from one of its finest filmmakers. Delicately observed, the film starts as a marriage drama before turning into a thriller, as sociopolitical threads seep into its narrative.
