New picture by the Russian master Andrey Zvyagintsev, hailed as a hit of the last Cannes Festival. The marriage of Boris and Zhenya, well-off urban forty-year-olds, doesn’t exist but on paper anymore. They both have an affair, feel resentful towards each other, and remain together mainly because of their flat, which they had put up for sale, and their twelve-year-old son Alyosha. The egoistic parents avoid any involvement in the upbringing of their child, who stands in the way to achieve their goals. One day, the boy disappears. A search begins, which becomes allows the director to line out a worrying image of contemporary Russia.
