Synopsis :

Zhenya and Boris are going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration and recriminations. Already embarking on new lives, each with a new partner, they are impatient to start again, to turn the page – even if it means threatening to abandon their 12-year-old son Alyosha. Until, after witnessing one of their fights, Alyosha disappears...

Our View :

We've all heard the familiar story of two people longing for change in their lives. It takes a talented storyteller to keep us interested. This Jury Prize winner out of Cannes hits every note, as sad as they may be. Other than the child caught in the middle, the movie's about two people, and the culture and country of which they're a part.
