Open to the Public

(Audrey Zvyagintsev, Russia, 2014, 140 minutes)

A dispute over land in a remote Russian township becomes a stone that casts cataclysmic ripples through a family and a community. It is a thinly veiled political parable drenched in bitter irony that takes aim against the corrupt, corrosive regime of Vladimir Putin. “The director’s most accessible and naturalistic film, using everyday characters to test how well modern-day Russia is maintaining the social contract with its citizens.”––Peter Debruge, Variety. In Russian with English subtitles.
