    And after reading about the film a bit just now, I learned Vladimir Garin (Andrei) drowned in a lake where part of the movie was filmed shortly before its debut. Maybe it's just the feelings left over from the film, but I think that's the most horribly depressing news I've heard in a long, long time. His performance was excellent, and the world lost a great actor. Such a shame... 9 years 8 months ago

    My god, this film was bleak. The color, the music, the plot, everything...bleak is the only way I can describe it. It was powerful, and it definitely made me nervous and kept me tightly strung...but man, was it heavy. 9 years 8 months ago

    I've now see two films by Andrey Zvyagintsev and he is on my list of must see filmmakers. I'll be seeing a THe Banishment tomorrow. Visually there isn't a director I'm more excited about because of how restrained yet beautiful his images are. I await each of his films with baited breath. 5 years 9 months ago
