Jury statement: "An epic story that delves deep into the Russian soul, Andrey Zviagintsev's extraordinary film 'Leviathan' is the CineMasters Jury award for best film. As it charts one ordinary man's fight against authorities and the church, who are conspiring against him to take away his ramshackle home overlooking the Barents Sea, it acts as a mirror for issues facing not only ordinary Russians but for many others around the world. Featuring mesmerisingly beautiful cinematography by Mikhail Kirchman, a series of impressive and haunting lead performances and a striking score by Philip Glass, the film is packed full of unforgettable images, subtle humour and dark drama, resulting in a powerful, moving and memorable piece of cinema."
