Inspired by Fyodor Dostoevsky’s short story, director Sergei Loznitsa takes us into a lawless Russia where crime is often unpunished.
A woman lives alone on the outskirts of a Russian village. One day she receives a parcel she sent to her incarcerated husband, marked 'return to sender'. She decides to travel to Siberia in search of answers. Met by violence, corruption and humiliation, this 'gentle creature' pursues a quest for justice. A powerful and hugely ambitious state-of-the-nation fable.
A Gentle Creature, dir. Sergei Loznitsa, France/Germany/Ukraine/Netherlands/Lithuania 2017, Russian with English subtitles, 143 mins
