The Death of Stalin

In the Kremlin, no one can hear you scheme

Proclaimed the funniest political comedy of the year (The Daily Beast), The Death of Stalin delivers a brutally executed parody of Cold War Russia. When the tyrannical ruler Stalin dies, his hapless inner circle scrambles to come up with the next evolution of the revolution ? but it's clear everyone is really out for themselves. Written and directed by Emmy® Award winning and Oscar® nominated Armando Iannucci, Rolling Stone calls the film a brilliant satire from a crack ensemble (including Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Andrea Riseborough and Michael Palin). Proof that comedy, like politics, is all in the execution.

Un film où l'on rit bien et pourtant... Est-on vraiment si loin de la réalité dans cette guerre de succession ? Le ton est léger et on se laisse porter par les situations comiques mais on ne peut s'empêcher de remettre dans le contexte et se remémorer toute l'horreur de ces années là.
