Burnt by the Sun

1994 R

Col. Sergei Kotov, his wife Maroussia and daughter Nadia are enjoying life at their beautiful country estate in Stalinist Russia when a mysterious man arrives, shattering their hopes for a peaceful existence. Mitia, who once was Maroussia's lover, seems perfectly charming at first -- but it soon becomes clear he has a sinister agenda. Nikita Mikhalkov's powerful portrait of viciousness during the Stalin era won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
