MOSCOW, may 18 — RIA Novosti, Pavel Nuts. «Clearly bright and passionate», «breathtakingly intense», «realistic yet metaphorical» foreign journalists do not spare the epithets to share the experience, which made them drama by Andrey Zvyagintsev’s «Dislike,» which opened may 17, contest performances of the 70-th Cannes film festival.

During an argument Jack announces that she’s never liked either him or his son, and offers to send the child to boarding school and then the army. Both recognize that a timely abortion would be the best solution. Alyosha accidentally overheard this dialogue, it soon goes missing, parents go looking for him.

«But no, «Dislike» is not a story about the search for Alyosha again unite Boris and Eugene, or at least force them to come to their senses and stop hating each other, writes Variety columnist Owen Gleiberman, noting «socially realistic, chuchkovsky» picture style. All that happens next is powerful and obvious at the same time, and the theme of the film goes far beyond the history of one of the deceased family.»

Film critic Leslie Felperin on the pages of The Hollywood Reporter celebrates the outstanding work of all the creators of the picture, lists the names of the composer Eugene Galperin, a film editor, Anna Mass, artist Andrey Ponkratov, operator Michael Krichman, «love in a window with rain drops». She also praises the ensemble cast and the jury, who in this film «adheres to high production standards, which brought him fame» and «demonstrates an incredible talent for creating the perfect dramatic worlds, illustrating the pathological problems of the Russian society».

«Zvyagintsev’s film tore prolonged applause from the usually reserved participants in an evening press conference, says the Brazilian critic Marian MORISAWA. — As a rule, from the Russian cinema — at least in its festival format, don’t expect blockbusters. However, the «Dislike» by Andrei Zvyagintsev was another disappointment. Did not disappoint and the quality of the picture, which powerfully opened the competition after the not too distinct out-of-competition French film «Ghosts of Ismael» directed by Arnaud Desplechin».

Regardless of how you will work Zvyagintsev jury in Cannes, «Dislike» would be a hit of international sales, says The Hollywood Reporter. As if in confirmation of these words on the eve of Cannes came the news that the rent of Russian paintings in America, there will be one of the largest distributors of independent and art films — Sony Pictures Classics, which is «rolled» and «Leviathan». In Russian cinemas new film Zvyagintsev will appear on 1 June.
