Director: Kirill Serebrennikov | Stars: Teo Yoo, Irina Starshenbaum, Roman Bilyk, Anton Adasinsky

Votes: 4,572

European Film Awards 2018

Best Production Designer (Andrey Ponkratov)

Academy Comments:"The production design of Andrey Ponkratov makes us really believe and feel like we are in the middle of an early 80s Leningrad summer at the very beginning of major political changes. The film sets include large open nature locations like a beach, closed flats stuffed with people and things and an almost claustrophobic concert hall. The well-researched work of the whole art department team supports and underlines the authentic atmosphere of that period in a subtle way."

3. Loveless (2017)

R | 127 min | Drama

86 Metascore

European Film Awards 2017

• Best Film

• Best Director (Andrey Zvyagintsev)

• Best Screenwriter (Oleg Negin, Andrey Zvyagintsev)

Best Cinematographer (Mikhail Krichman)

Academy Comments: "The cold eye of Mikhail Krichman guides us through the film's dark universe, consequently constructing an intense feeling of discomfort. The camera conveys a strong sense of darkness, emptiness and sadness. The choice of what is shown and what stays hidden, gives tremendous weight to every movement of the camera, every carefully constructed frame. Ascetic and well-measured cinematic means evoke an uncanny sense of anxiety, a slight internal tremor."

Best Composer (Evgueni Galperine, Sacha Galperine)

Academy Comments: "The dark, haunting and brooding music intensifies the experience of watching the film. Beautifully written, with an intelligent use of piano effects, the score works like an extra character added to the unfortunate family. From beginning to end, the music captivates the underlying tensions, the hidden truths and lies, and guides you through the story, without being too overtly present."
