Zyagenstev's Leviathan is a tragedy that befalls a commoner as he clashes face to face with the high and mighty of the town. This is not an unheard story but that's exactly what makes for compelling it's a story that could have been set in India or Ghana or Canada or any country as easily as it's set in Russia because all countries and all societies rely on institutions such as the state religion, family so on for relatively less chaotic functioning and everywhere imperfect institutions and the flaws in human characters join hands to makes things complicated

If you enjoy the so beautiful to look at that it becomes even more tragic kind of films, the cinematography blends in well with its writing making it a worthy watch.
