Synopsis

Sixty-ish spouses Vladimir and Elena uneasily share his palatial Moscow apartment - he's a still-virile, wealthy businessman; she's his dowdy former nurse who has clearly "married up." Estranged from his own wild-child daughter, Vladimir openly despises his wife's freeloading son and family. But when a sudden illness and an unexpected reunion threaten the dutiful housewife's potential inheritance, she must hatch a desperate plan...Masterfully crafted by award-winning Russian filmmaker Andrey Zvyagintsev and featuring evocative, Hitchcockian music by Philip Glass, Elena is a subtly stylish exploration of crime, punishment and human nature.
