The winner of the 1995 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film and the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes, Burnt by the Sun centres on Kotov, a hero of the Soviet Revolution. On a bright summer’s day he enjoys life with his family at his dacha in the country until the arrival of Dmitri. Subtly dissecting the lives of the privileged under Stalin, Burnt by the Sun is an intense work broken by moments of sublime comedy.
