Movie Info

A woman lives alone on the outskirts of a village in Russia. One day she receives a parcel she sent to her incarcerated husband, marked 'return to sender'. Shocked and confused, the woman has no choice but to travel to the prison in a remote region of the country in search of an explanation. So begins the story of a battle against this impenetrable fortress, the prison where the forces of social evil are constantly at work. Braving violence and humiliation, in the face of all opposition, our protagonist embarks on a blind quest for justice.

The sheer scope of the project demands recognition. It misses the moon by a galaxy, but at least it is has the nerve to take the shot.

A captivating, hallucinatory plunge into Russia's atrophied civil society, in which a woman's search for answers is rewarded with humiliation and abuse.

A Gentle Creature is not what one might call a fun watch. But it's also obviously not just horror for horror's sake.

The film, which starts out naturalistically and gradually transmogrifies into a surrealistic political fable, recounts the horrific saga of an unnamed woman.

In one facet as in another, its 140 minutes of footage are insufferable. [Full review in Spanish]
