    Russian filmmaker Andrei Zvyagintsev received Sunday the Jury Prize at the 70th Cannes Film Festival for his film Loveless.

    CANNES (Sputnik) — Loveless is a drama about a young couple in the middle of a divorce who are occupied by their own problems, when one day their 12-year-old son Alyosha goes missing.

    A total of 19 films were present in the official competition. The Palme d’Or was awarded to The Square, a drama by Swedish director Ruben Ostlund.

    In 2016, the BBC published a film critic poll ranking the best 100 films of the 21st century, which included two films directed by Zvyagintsev — The Return and Leviathan.
