The title may be leviathan but the plot was as big as a minnow. This movie was another boring foreign film along the same lines as Once Upon a Time in Anatolia. Many long series of nature shots that are gorgeous and long bouts of silence. No dialogue or music, just still shots of nature. Also like Blue is the Warmest Color where they just ate all the time, these Russians just sat around drinking vodka. I think in the 2 hours and 20 minutes of film I watched about 7 or 8 bottles get finished. Fascinating. When there was some political intrigue the film started to get good, and then it was back to nature and drinking and silence again. The ending will also leave you scratching your head and make you wonder why you watched this film that stinks worse than low tide.
