    “Uranus” by Claude Berri researches how inhumane conditions of life makes human soul crumble, deform and deteriorate. The film returns us to France in a time of ending of WW2 but draws analogies with today’s life in Europe and US while depicting how intensification of economic fight and socio-political hate have a devastating influence on the morality of the population, be it during the war or so called peaceful times. Berri makes us to observe that when war ends it is continuing, more, it intensifies and multiplies. “Uranus” fully resonates with experiences of Americans today who already for years live amidst multiple wars of different kind – wars of killing soldiers and murdering civilians, and wars economic, political and cultural inside US.
    Berri offers classification of the types of psychological degradation when people facing death, pauperization and uncertainty regress to hate and start to betray and fight one another in a more and more unrestricted fashion. Berri provides a typology of the members of French Communist party who use their ideology to justify their hate and suspiciousness, of individuals with right wing ideologies who try to keep their power over population intact, and intelligent and educated people trying to neutralize their inhumane impulses with attempts to keep human decency.
    The film elaborately criticizes the both – collaborationists and communists: Berri sees the same moral and psychological degradation in both mutually antagonistic camps involved into a hateful fight for the unconditional victory of their side.
    The film is acted with an exceptional emotional power and diagnostic articulateness in describing human characters trapped in impossible situations. The scene of murder of Leopold-the pub owner (Gerard Depardieu) by the police (according to the suggestion of “multibillionaire” Monblat) is one of the best acted scenes in the history of intellectual cinema.
