Elena ★★★★☆

"A pitch perfect example of European arthouse cinema"

Director Andrei Zvyagintsev broke onto the scene with his remarkably assured 2003 debut The Return, a visually alluring and emotionally engrossing story of two young boys who embark on a road trip with their long lost father. His third feature Elena (2011) also deals with fraught domestic relationships and is a welcome confirmation that this promising Russian director is worthy of his early praise.
