The Death of Stalin is a brilliant historical, satirical farce following the men bumbling and brawling to be the next Soviet leader. Acted by an A- list line up, it’s Monty Python meets The Thick of It.
Relentlessly funny – vicious and delicious the internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in THE DEATH OF STALIN, the new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci (Oscar-nominated writer of In the Loop, and the Emmy and BAFTA award-winning creator of Veep, I’m Alan Partridge and The Thick of It).
In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his band of scheming core bootlicks vie for control and power; some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive. A film that combines comedy, drama, pathos and and political manoeuvring.
Based on the graphic novel by Thierry Robin and Fabien Nury, the historical satire is set in the USSR in the turbulent hours and days after its once all-powerful ruler, Joseph Stalin suffers a stroke and dies in 1953. As his stricken body lies on the floor of his summer retreat in the Moscow suburbs, his senior advisors grapple to assert control in the ensuing power vacuum, plunging the Soviet Union into violent uncertainty.
