Russian master Andrei Konchalovsky returns with his most compelling film in years. Dear Comrades is a stylish and clinical expose of Soviet oppression in a small provincial town in 1962. It’s also a gripping personal story centred on one family. Loyal Communist Party official Lyuda is shocked to learn about a strike at the local factory, including her own daughter who is now missing. As the situation spirals out of control, Lyuda begins a desperate search through curfews, mass arrests, and the authorities’ ruthless attempts to cover up state violence.
