Movie Info

1945, Leningrad. World War II has devastated the city, demolishing its buildings and leaving its citizens in tatters, physically and mentally. Although the siege -- one of the worst in history -- is finally over, life and death continue their battle in the wreckage that remains. Two young women, Iya and Masha, search for meaning and hope in the struggle to rebuild their lives amongst the ruins. 26-year-old Kantemir Balagov follows TESNOTA, winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, with a powerful period drama.

The story is compounded by Balagov's imposing visual aesthetic, which was evident in Closeness but here is on a whole new level.

They can't look away. Neither may you.

If you can grit through it, the film offers a rewarding - if also unnerving - look at survival in the face of tragedy.

Even if the film seems slow at times, there's always something to look at, including Miroshnichenko and Perelygina, who are able to find grace and dignity in two such odd, hollowed out characters.

There are a lot of powerful scenes. It does end up being a little bit monotone... A little lightness would not have destroyed what was going on in this film.

Will they ever know this kind of brightness and cheer again, or are their clothes and peeling wallpaper expressing emotions that they cannot? Balagov doesn't say, but in spite of it all he leaves you with a shred of hope.
