Set in the remote Russian northwest, Leviathan, released on DVD and Blu-ray on 12th January 2015 courtesy of Artificial Eye, is the tragic tale of one man's struggle against a corrupt system of power, brought to breathtaking life by visionary director Andrey Zvyagintsev (The Return, The Banishment, Elena).
Kolya, a part-time mechanic, lives on a rocky shore with his wife and son in a house he built himself. When a local mayor attempts to seize the property through a compulsory purchase order he calls in a lawyer friend from Moscow to help fight his case. But the wheels of justice soon prove to be slow, heavy and quite possibly deadly...
An astounding work of epic scope and savage emotion that was awarded Best Screenplay at Cannes 2014 and Best Film at the London Film Festival 2014, Leviathan is a visually arresting masterpiece that has drawn comparisons with Tarkovsky, shot through with the rich, novelistic complexity of Dostoyevsky.
