November 27, 2017 09:07


The film Loveless directed by Andrei Zvyagintsev has taken awards for camera work and music.
The Russian film Loveless by director Andrei Zvyagintsev and producers Alexander Rodnyansky and Sergei Melkumova has won two prizes of the European Film Academy.
Mikhail Krichman has been awarded a prize for camera work.

He "takes us through the gloomy atmosphere of the film and conveys a strong sense of discomfort, darkness, emptiness and sadness, thus causing an eerie sense of anxiety and inner awe," the jury pointed out.
Composers Evgeni Galperin and Sasha Galperin have received a prize for the film music, which “reinforces the general tension that encompasses the film viewer”, according to the jury.
The European Film Academy was founded in Berlin in 1988. Its mission is to promote European cinema in the world. The Academy gives an annual award, which, according to the original plan, was opposed to the American Oscar as the main cinematic award of united Europe.
Loveless has got three nominations of the European Film Academy at the same time. The film has made it into the Top 5 nominees in the categories: "The Best European film", "The Best European Director” and the "The Best European Script”.
The jubilee 30th award ceremony will take place in Berlin on December 9.
International Success
The world premiere of the film Loveless was held in the main competition program of the 70th Cannes International Film Festival, where it was awarded the Special Jury Award. As a result of the festival, the film received the highest ratings from the jury of international critics of the Screen International Magazine. In addition, the film won the Grand Prix at the Munich International Film Festival, and on October 14, “Loveless” won the Main Prize of the 61st London International Film Festival.
The Russian Oscar Committee on September 21 nominated the film Loveless for the Oscar Award of the American Academy in the nomination The Best Foreign Language Film. The film has already received many Russian and foreign awards, including the Special Jury Award at the 70th Cannes Film Festival.
What is the film about?
Loveless is a drama about an ordinary Moscow family that is going through a difficult period. Boris and Evgenia are still formally married, but each of them has a lover. The couple is trying to get a divorce as soon as possible. But so far they still have to live together in an atmosphere of endless quarrels and conflicts. In the chain of bickerfests, Boris and Eugenia are forgetting about Alyosha, their withdrawn and very vulnerable 12-year-old son. The divorce only exacerbates the parents and son’s relationship. After another conflict, Alyosha disappears, and everyone rushes to search for him.
“In many respects, the film started from the point where Andrei Zvyagintsev and screenwriter Oleg Negin got acquainted with a search and rescue team, and learned about the life of its volunteers, true ascetics (who look for missing people). Thus they came up with a story, which eventually turned into the film”- the film producer, Alexander Rodnyansky, said in an interview with TASS. He added that the film title, Loveless, was very important for the director, because Andrei Zvyagintsev always gets along with the Christian context.
