Closeness (Tesnota) (2017)
Critic Reviews for Closeness (Tesnota)
This movie, which Balagov, a Nalchik native, states in an onscreen text is based on a true story, has a whole lot of "slow" and one very nasty burn.
An ethically indefensible choice mars Russian first-timer Kantemir Balagov's otherwise impressively tough-minded debut.
Closeness is an intriguing debut film that is marred by one incredibly bad choice on the part of its director. If one is able to stomach the inclusion of the snuff film, there is plenty else worth watching here.
Debut film by the director of the acclaimed "Beanpole". Bodes well for Russian film when a young director channels Italian neo-realism and the Dardenne brothers.
