ELENA

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Won Un Certain Regard - Special Jury Prize at Cannes 2011. Elena sleeps in a separate bedroom to her older husband, whom she met years before when she nursed him in hospital. He now pays her to be his companion. When she asks for money to help her grandson avoid the draft, Vladmir refuses. It is a decision that all may live to regret and is the lynchpin in Zvyagintsev's smart arthouse thriller, which constantly surprises and simmers with tension. ★★★★ “The subtlety and stealth of this movie is a marvel" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
