“A masterpiece. An eerie thriller of hypnotic, mysterious intensity.“

Peter Bradshaw, THE GUARDIAN

“Masterful. If you’re interested in finding out more about life in Vladimir Putin’s Russia — not the political side of life but the ordinary, everyday lives of “typical” Russians — you need look no further. This is among the best films made anywhere in the world over the past 15 years. Never less than riveting.“ David Stratton, THE WEEEKEND AUSTRALIAN

“Beautifully crafted. This austere, masterful film shows the absolute control Zvyagintsev has over his art. It is so beautiful.“ Margaret Pomeranz, FOXTEL ARTS SCREEN

“Fascinating. Absolutely extraordinary on so many levels. The best film I’ve seen so far this year easily.“ Graeme Blundell, FOXTEL ARTS SCREEN

“Intelligent and poetic. There is no other film I have seen over the past decade that has spoken to the damage of our times as eloquently and profoundly. It’s a masterpiece. If you care about the art of cinema, do not miss this film.”
Christos Tsiolkas, THE SATURDAY PAPER


“Vivid and real. The sense that this is all happening now, before our eyes, is gripping. At the same time, Zvyagintsev brings a poetic edge to his imagery that jangles the senses.“
Paul Byrnes, SMH/THE AGE


“A masterpiece. A stunningly well crafted and extraordinarily observant depiction of modern life, relationships, parenting, and society. At every turn it is revealing and stunningly precise about the human condition. It offers the viewer a chance not only to reflect on their own life but to truly search their soul. Like the very, very best films, I believe that if I listen to it, I can be a slightly better person for it.”

“Riveting. A thriller that rattles the soul. What makes Loveless a great film, rather than just a good film, apart from the exquisite cinematography, is Zvyagintsev’s ability to implicate his audience in the story. Unsentimental, unsparing, unutterably sad... Loveless makes a powerful argument for human tenderness.“


“Extraordinarily assured. A beautifully realised piece of cinema. It is filled with a feeling of lament about the malaise that has hollowed out Putin’s authoritarian state, but it works on the heart not the mind.”
Julian Wood, FILMINK
