Synopsis

1998, Nalchik, Russland. En krise oppstår i en jødisk familie når sønnen David og hans forlovede blir kidnappet. Datteren Ilana forsøker å komme seg bort fra den tradisjonelle familiestrukturen, og mens foreldrene holder seg til det jødiske samfunnet for å finne hjelp, går hun til kjæresten sin.

Vår mening

This powerhouse debut by Kantemir Balagov, a student of master Aleksandr Sokurov, delves into the fraught relationships of the small Jewish community inside the Caucasian city of Nalchik. Darya Zhovner’s performance as a young woman seeking freedom from a confining world is fierce and unforgettable.

It’s a difficult film, erratic in shape and exhausting in its sensory intensity; however, thanks to the sheer force and precision of Balagov’s direction, it’s never anything short of transfixing.

Austere, intense, claustrophobic and shot through with brilliance. . . . The director Kantemir Balagov crams his frame with people — a celebratory dinner is a bravura example of his use of cinematic space — a choice that captures the existential push and pull of identity.

The film is dense, often moving, very successfully conducted. But after an hour, it freezes entirely. . . . In retrospect, it seems incredibly bold from first-time director Kantemir Balagov to have bet that we would still be able to care about the problems of his fictional characters after having been reminded so vividly of the horrors of history.
