An EU coproduction filmed in Latvia, Sergei Loznitsa's A GENTLE CREATURE depicts a vision of Russian society that's both brutally bureaucratic and essentially lawless. A woman (Vasilina Makovtseva) receives the care package she has sent to her imprisoned husband, marked "return to sender." Her efforts to get an explanation and information about her husband lead her into a hell populated by Kafkaesque civil servants, opportunistic exploiters of misery and peddlers of vice. Beginning with a grimly realistic representation of the recognizably recent past, Losnitza's film moves into a more expressionistic and nightmarish tenor as the heroine's plight worsens, spiraling into madness and perhaps back in time, too. Official Selection, 2017 Cannes Film Festival. DIR/SCR Sergei Loznitsa; PROD Marianne Slot. France/Germany/Netherlands/Lithuania, 2017, color, 143 min. In Russian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
