Elena [DVD]

A film by Andrey Zvyagintsev

“NERVE-RATTLING. A thriller about the shifting moral calculus in a world where money changes everything.”
–Steve Dollar, The Wall Street Journal

FROM THE DIRECTOR OF LEVIATHAN. Winner of Cannes’ Un Certain Regard Special Jury Prize, Elena is a gripping, modern twist on the classic noir thriller. Sixty-ish spouses Vladimir and Elena (award winner Nadezhda Markina) uneasily share his palatial Moscow apartment—he’s a still-virile, wealthy businessman; she’s his dowdy former nurse who has clearly “married up.” Estranged from his own wild-child daughter, Vladimir openly despises his wife’s freeloading son and family. But when a sudden illness and an unexpected reunion threaten the dutiful housewife’s potential inheritance, she must hatch a desperate plan…. Masterfully crafted by award-winning Russian filmmaker Andrei Zvyagintsev (Leviathan, Golden Globe nominee The Return) and featuring evocative, Hitchcockian music by Philip Glass, Elena is a subtly stylish exploration of crime, punishment and human nature.
