The Death of Stalin is a British-French political satire film directed by Armando Iannucci creator of IN THE LOOP.
It chronicles the Soviet power struggles occasioned by the death of dictator Joseph Stalin in 1953.

“Iannucci’s brand of political satire is applied to one of the darkest chapters in modern history, with sensational results. The Lives Of Others with laughs, it’s farcical, frightening and a timely reminder that things could always be worse.” ***** TOP RATING! EMPIRE.

“Superbly cast, and acted with icy and ruthless force by an A-list lineup. There are no weak links. Each has a plum role; each squeezes every gorgeous horrible drop.”
***** TOP RATING! THE GUARDIAN (UK)

“ Iannucci’s most complex and almost nihilistic rendering of what politics is: A team of bumbling and weak-minded people who lack any real conviction other than a desire for power and position.” VOX.

“The novelty of his volcanically vulgar, deeply cynical tone may have worn off some, but Iannucci has nonetheless crafted another poisonous cocktail of naked ambition and blustery bravado with a decidedly bitter aftertaste.” SCREEN INTERNATIONAL.
