This unique and brilliant horror-satire explores the internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia, following the death of Joseph Stalin, and is told with a darkly comic twist.
In this new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci, a superb cast (featuring Michael Palin and Jason Isaacs) tell the true story about a dangerous power vaccum inside the highest levels of government. The core team of ministers tussle for control; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive.
