Shot Breakdown 006: BETRAYAL (2012)

logo


This week I’m bringing you an arthouse film from Russia which competed at the 69th Venice Film Festival. What particularly struck me is the cinematography of this film. Shot in the fall it presents a rich, somber and gloomy palette of colors. Study this to see how mood and atmosphere is conveyed through weather. Russian cinema has been struggling since the fall of Soviet Union but it is slowly re-entering world cinema. Self taught filmmaking team of Andrei Zvyagintsev and Mikhail Krichman – director and cinematographer respectively – are some of those people who have proven that true Russian cinema is not dead yet. Betrayal comes from Kirill Serebrennikov. Watch the trailer below
