Storyline

Still living under the same roof, the Moscow couple of Boris and Zhenya is in the terrible final stages of a bitter divorce. Under those circumstances, as both have already found new partners, the insults pour down like rain in this toxic familial battle zone, always pivoting around the irresolvable and urgent matter of Alyosha's custody, their 12-year-old only son. Unheard, unloved, and above all, unwanted, the introverted and unhappy boy feels that he is an intolerable burden, however, what his parents don't know is that he can hear every single word. As a result, when Boris and Zhenya finally realize that Alyosha has been missing for nearly two days, it is already too late. But is this a simple case of a runaway teenager? Written by Nick Riganas

Loveless and hopeless world
22 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

There have been numerous films about a child missing while the parents are separated. A lot of them have worked on many levels and explored the possibilities of drama out of it. Yet Zvyagintsev managed to make a compelling film about the same situation without trying anything new with the plot but by using the time and world we live in itself to give life to the film. Modern life, ambition, stability and the Russian society play the crucial part in forming the film. But even with all these familiar aspects, it's the distinct eye of Zvyagintsev that gives a spiritual visualization and elevates the film. The world here is not dark and violent but bleak and hopeless that terrifies you even more. Though at times you get a feeling that the director leans towards a more patriarchal society which is a bit of a reversion.
