Loveless (Nelyubov) Reviews

April 26, 2018
Thin on character and narrative.

But despite director Zvyagintsev's reliably sinuous, controlled filmmaking, Loveless too often comes off as just a relentless bummer.

Throughout the film, even chronic pessimists (like me!) will find themselves defending humanity.

Loveless is ultimately a test of patience.

The characters have no life beyond what they symbolise, including Alexey himself, whose absence is the biggest metaphor of them all: he's the lost innocence of a society deep in the throes of self-absorption.

The film's title may refer to the protagonists' marriage and its symbolic connotations, but it's also a perfect description of Zvyagintsev's treatment of his subject matter.
