SPOTLIGHT ON CANNES 2021: UN CERTAIN REGARD — DELO —Alexey German Jr.
"David, a university professor, takes to social media to criticize his city’s administration. But instead of the mayor’s dodgy dealings being investigated, David is himself accused of embezzlement and placed under house arrest."
"Despite the overbearing surveillance, double-crossing acquaintances, and growing media interest, David remains defiant and will not apologize. With the court case drawing ever nearer, does David have any hope of winning this battle against Goliath?"
"With this satirical drama, writer/director Aleksey Guerman Jr. (Dovlatov – Berlin 2018 Silver Bear, Under Electric Clouds – Berlin 2015 Silver Bear, Paper Soldier – Venice 2008 Best Director), delivers a character study perfectly in sync with the current events in Russia."
