Aero Theatre | ‘BLEAK WEEK: Cinema of Despair’ Series 

ABOUT THE FILMS:

THE RETURN, 2003, Kino Lorber, 105 min, Russia, Dir: Andrey Zvyagintsev. 

A mixture of psychological thriller and road movie, Andrey Zvyagintsev’s THE RETURN tells the story of two young brothers, Andrei (Vladimir Garin) and Ivan (Ivan Dobronravov), who must cope with the sudden and unexplained return of their long absent father. Unusually close and notably protective of each other’s interests, Andrei and Ivan embark on a destination-free road trip with the cryptic father after years of gazing at his image on a torn photograph. But as hopes for a caring parent metamorphose into fear of abuse, a family getaway becomes the background for self-discovery and the destruction of deeply rooted emotional investments. Winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.

FORMAT: 35mm

LEVIATHAN, 2014, Sony Pictures Classics, 141 min, Russia, Dir: Andrey Zvyagintsev. 

Crafted with novelistic detail and rich with allegory, this ambitious film by Andrey Zvyagintsev explores dark themes through a delicate balance of heavy drama and occasional humor. In a small coastal town in northern Russia, a corrupt mayor (Roman Madyanov) tries to confiscate the home of a man (Alexey Serebryakov) who suffers the trials of Job when he resists. Best Screenplay winner at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. “Huge monsters of the deep move under the surface of this powerful, craftily allusive and elusive film, the director’s best and most courageous so far.” – Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter.

FORMAT: DCP
