From the director of 'Loveless', 'Leviathan' is a visually arresting masterpiece that has drawn comparisons with Tarkovsky, shot through with the rich, novelistic complexity of Dostoyevsky.
Kolya, a part-time mechanic, lives on a rocky shore with his wife and son in a house he built himself. When a local mayor attempts to seize the property through a compulsory purchase order he calls in a lawyer friend from Moscow to help fight his case. But the wheels of justice soon prove to be slow, heavy and quite possibly deadly...
An astounding work of epic scope that was nominated for a BAFTA and awarded Best Film at the 2014 London Film Festival.
★★★★★ "An overpoweringly remorseless film" - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
★★★★★ "Magnificent" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
