Alex (Konstantin Lavronenko) and Vera (Maria Bonnevie) are taking their children (Maxim Shibaev and Katya Kulkina) away from the city in favor of a quiet life in the rolling countryside. That all changes when Vera reveals to Alex that she is pregnant--and the child is not his. Nominated for the Golden Palm at Cannes and winner of a European Film Award for cinematography (Mickhail Krichman). In Russian with English subtitles. Andrei Zvyagintsev---Russia---2007---151 mins.
