Nelyubov (Loveless)
A compelling meditation on the complexities of life in modern-day Russia, from acclaimed director Andrey Zvyagintsev, that takes a broken family as a metaphor for the state of a nation in flux. Middle-class couple Boris and Zhenya are divorcing and starting new lives. The split has been extraordinarily bitter, an emotional rupture of seismic proportions, and their 12-year old son Alyosha has borne the brunt. When Aloshya vanishes, after a particularly ugly encounter between his warring parents, they are forced to work together to try and find him. Full of darkness, tension and suspense, ‘Loveless’ brilliantly casts a critical eye over the morals and hypocrisies of everyday life in Russia.
