Leviathan , the latest film by Andrey Zvyagintsev was made ​​with the support of the Russian Ministry of Culture and is the entry for the Oscar for Best Foreign Film, still no Russian has seen it. The reason is a silly law of the Vladimir Putin administration that forbids swearing and believe me, in this film there are a lot of ugly words!

Leviathan is somewhat based on the Book of Job. Andrey Zvyagintsev makes a poignant love story, but he denounces the corruption in his country as well. Nikolai ( Aleksey Serebryakov ) lives with his wife Lilya (Elena Lyadova ) in a coastal town on the Barents Sea. The corrupt mayor ( Roman Madyanov ) wants to steal his house in all possible ways as he has other plans for it. Nikolai can count on the help of a lawyer (Vladimir Vdovichenkov) from Moscow, but the mayor can’t be intimidated.

Many critics found it incomprehensible that Leviathan wasn’t awarded with the Golden Palm. After The Return , The Banishment and Elena this Russian filmmaker has delivered another cinematic gem, a mixture of an Eastern European version of a Martin Scorsese-crime story and a contemporary Andrei Tarkovsky fairy tale. Zvyagintsev alternates intense ( brutal ) dialogues with beautiful shots of barren landscapes. Add the impressive score by Philip Glass and you know that Leviathan is one of the film jewels of 2014. A must !

Leviathan, de laatste film van Andrey Zvyagintsev is gemaakt met de steun van het Russische ministerie van cultuur en is de inzending voor de Oscar voor Beste Buitenlandse Film. Toch heeft tot nu toe geen enkele Rus hem gezien. De reden is een dwaze wet waarin Vladimir Poetin het vloeken verbiedt en geloof ons, in deze film vallen er heel wat lelijke woorden en wordt er heel wat vodka gezopen!

Leviathan is lichtjes gebaseerd op het Boek van Job. Naast een aangrijpend liefdesverhaal wil Andrey Zvyagintsev vooral de corruptie in zijn land hekelen. Nikolai (Aleksey Serebryakov) leeft samen met zijn vrouw Lilya (Elena Lyadova) in een kuststadje aan de Barentszzee. Zijn woning is een doorn in het oog van de corrupte burgemeester (Roman Madyanov) die de grond op alle mogelijke manieren wil afpakken. Nikolai kan op de hulp rekenen van een bevriende advocaat (Vladimir Vdovichenkov) uit Moskou, maar de burgervader laat zich niet intimideren.

Heel wat critici vonden het onbegrijpelijk dat Leviathan niet aan de haal ging met de Gouden Palm. Na The Return, The Banishment en Elena tovert deze Russische cineaste inderdaad weer een cinematografisch pareltje uit zijn hoge hoed dat zowel op een Oost-Europese variant van een Martin Scorsese-misdaadverhaal als op een hedendaags Andrei Tarkovsky-sprookje lijkt. Zvyagintsev wisselt intense (brutale) dialogen af met prachtige shots van dorre landschappen. Na afloop blijven er maar weinig huisjes overeind (zelfs de schijnheiligheid van de kerk wordt aan de kaak gesteld). Tel daar nog eens de indrukwekkende score van Philip Glass bij en je weet dat Leviathan één van de filmparels van 2014 is. Verplichte kost!
