Synopsis

1945, Leningrad. World War II has devastated the city, demolishing its buildings and leaving its citizens in tatters, physically and mentally. Two young women, Iya and Masha, search for meaning and hope in the struggle to rebuild their lives amongst the ruins.

Our take

After the shockingly powerful Closeness, we couldn’t wait for Russian wunderkind Kantemir Balagov’s second film. Beanpole grabbed us by the throat: an entrancing immersion into post-war turmoil and a towering ode to female resilience—with tour-de-force performances and a jaw-dropping use of color.
