Andrey Zvyagintsev follows up Leviathan (2014) – his powerhouse tale of corruption in contemporary Russia – with the equally virtuosic Loveless, a hypnotic thriller. Zhenya (Maryana Spivak) and Boris (Aleksey Rozin) are going through a bitter divorce. Already embarking on new lives, they are impatient to start again, whatever the cost to their young son Alyosha (Matvey Novikov) – when, suddenly, he disappears. In this brilliantly bleak and mysterious drama Zvyagintsev investigates one family’s dysfunction against a wider societal malaise; exploring the metaphysical ills of modern Russia. Another astonishing film from one of the world’s most exciting contemporary filmmakers.“Russian director Andrei Zvyagintsev has produced another masterpiece” ***** Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
