The film, very much unlike Hazanvicius' Oscar-winning "The Artist," follows the lives of four different people during the Second Chechen War in 1999: a refugee child whose family is murdered, a European Union delegation head who tries to help him, his elder sister who desperately searches for him and a young Russian solider who has become disillusioned with the violence.

It looks to be a strong picture and it helps that it stars Oscar nominees Bérénice Bejo and Annette Bening.

Check out the trailer below.
