  • Nadezhda Markina is splendid as Elena, who speaks little but still manages to make her thoughts and emotions crystal clear. show more

  • Beneath the noirish topicality of Elena, which won a special jury prize at Cannes last year, lies a bone-deep existential unease and spiritual alienation, a preoccupation with sin that is at once quintessentially Russian and wholly archaic. show more

  • Elena reveals a filmmaker in full command of his art and not much interested in catering to an audience. If you want this film, you have to meet it more than halfway. show more
