The director’s fifth feature (and highly anticipated followup to his masterful LEVIATHAN) follows the travails of a couple on the verge of splitting up, and the devastating impact that decision has on their 12- year-old child, who decides to flee. They spend most of the movie searching for him, but Zvyagintsev focuses less on the mystery than the grim circumstances responsible for it. NELYUBOV is a bleak, disquieting drama sustained by its performances and tone, the movie is such a haunting experience that it remains absorbing even when it doesn’t go anywhere. (Eric Kohn)
