Zvyagintsev gained a bit of a following on the heels of Elena, which won the Un Certain Regard Special Jury Prize in 2011. His film before that, The Banishment, played in Competition, but it might be his first film, The Return, that’s his best. His latest is shrouded in secrecy, but Zvyagintsev began filming last year, so Cannes seems likely. And if it does play, it could be challenging and powerful enough to take the Palme, which would catapult the great director to a whole other level on the international stage.
