The internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in a new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director ARMANDO IANNUCCI.
On the night of March the 2nd 1953, a man is dying. A terrible stroke is wracking his entire body. He is drooling. He is pissing himself. He is about to kick the bucket and if you play your cards right, his job is yours for the taking. The man is Joseph Stalin – dictator, tyrant, butcher, as well as Secretary General of the USSR. ‘The Death of Stalin’ is a satire about the days before the funerals of the Nation’s Father. Days that shine a sardonic light on all the madness, depravity and inhumanity of totalitarianism. Days that will see the men surrounding him fight to inherit his supreme power. And it’s all based on true events.
A film that combines comedy, drama, pathos and political manoeuvring, ‘The Death of Stalin’ is a Quad, Main Journey and Gaumont production, directed by ARMANDO IANNUCCI, and produced by YANN ZENOU, LAURANT ZENOU, NICOLAS DUVAL ASSAKOVSKY and KEVIN LOADER.
