In Deptford CInema’s ‘Unseen in 2018’ strand, we bring to you the cream of the crop of those films released last year that we feel deserved a bigger audience. The chosen films come from a variety of filmmakers and genres, but all display a unique vision.

LOVELESS, widely regarded as Russian director Andrei Zvyagintsev’s new masterpiece, tells the story of a failed marriage and the subsequent disappearance of a child.

In LOVELESS, Zhenya and Boris are going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration and recriminations. Already embarking on new lives, each with a new partner, they are impatient to start again, to turn the page - even if it means threatening to abandon their 12-year-old son Alyosha. Until, after witnessing one of their fights, Alyosha disappears.

Everything here - from the image to the dialogue to the landscape to the film’s vision and judgment - is clean, cold, and bracing
