This is a Russian film about a regular man fighting against the local mayor over his home and property. The story has a slow build to it, and the outcome is not easily predicted. This is an excellent film with great acting by all of the lead characters, even though the story is dark and depressing.
Leviathan is not a fun film to watch, but it sure delivers on the drama. A bit dark in setting and tone, it should appeal to fans of indie films, and people interested in a unique view of government corruption in Russia.
Leviathan was a decent movie, though a bit slow for my taste at times. The story does take some interesting twists and turns that make the story unique and somewhat memorable. You must be in the mood to read subtitles, so not a movie to watch if you are tired or are looking for a typical American popcorn and soda type movie. On the parental ratings, it is not recommended for the kids, some nudity and profanity.
