Zhenya and Boris are going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration and recriminations.
Already embarking on new lives, each with a new partner, they are impatient to start again, to turn the page – even if it means threatening to abandon their 12-year-old son Alexey. Until, after witnessing one of their fights, Alyosha disappears…
I can't say anything about this movie other than it is, probably, on the top 3 of the movies I have seen in 2017.
Now that the bluray is out it is even easier to watch it.
What Mikhail and Andrey created together this time is absolutely timeless.
It just gets you and makes you think about all the relationships that you have had and how they finished, how a simple sentence can destroy all your happiness and somebody else's life.
It also is, so far, Mikhail's best movie, and Leviathan was really really mega top!
The twilight scenes in the bedrooms are absolutely mesmerising and overall it is so wonderfully shot that he should have gotten the Oscar, not only because of the way it is photographed but also because of how Mikhail's photography makes you focus on what is happening to the characters, especially the husband.
Have a lovely day.
