Krotkaya (A Gentle Creature)
This powerful, slow-burning Russian drama, inspired by the Dostoyevsky story of the same name sees the unnamed central character – a taciturn young women running a petrol station in the middle of nowhere – embark on a long, difficult journey to the heart of deepest Siberia, where her imprisoned husband has apparently vanished. Once she reaches the chaotic end of the line, her quest for answers comes up against unexpected - and sinister - opposition.
