Film Review – Loveless (2018)

Following an incredibly successful limited release run in 2017 that culminated in a nomination in the most recent Academy Awards in the category of Best Foreign Language FilmLoveless finally opened in select theaters in the United States early in 2018.  Centered around a troubled relationship and their child, Loveless is already a classic of Russian cinema.  And now that it’s on streaming platforms and available on DVD/Blu-Ray, even more people can view its haunting beauty.  Not to mention that the film led to a pretty great opportunity for fellow MovieBabble collaborator Richard Keaney!

The review above is spoiler free.

Synopsis

Directed By: Andrey Zvyagintsev

Written By: Andrey Zvyagintsev and Oleg Negin

Starring: Maryana Spivak, Aleksey Rozin, Matvey Novikov, Marina Vasilyeva, Andris Keyshs, and Yanina Hope

Zhenya (Spivak) and Boris (Rozin) are going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration and recriminations. Already embarking on new lives, each with a new partner, they are impatient to start again, to turn the page — even if it means threatening to abandon their 12-year-old son Alyosha (Novikov). Until, after witnessing one of their fights, Alyosha disappears.
