I'm going to take a potshot, because the word sprung from the dark corner of my mind because of the image of the skeleton and I may have taken note of it in glancing at it at sometime "Leviathan"? Can't tell you another word about it not a single word.

That is correct @allthumbs.

It is Leviathan (Russian: Левиафан, Leviafan) from 2014 by Andrey Zvyagintsev.

 

A similarly bleak movie to the @mrbuzzardstubble's 13 Tzameti, however concerned with more mundane (less Deerhunter) plot. But they do share the depiction of brutalities of everyday life in current Russian/ex-Soviet parts of the world. Loosely inspired however by the events in Midwest of USA in early/mid 2000's (that was a bit of shock revelation for me).

 

A bonus is a clear influence of Andrey Tarkovsky (and also Bergman) on Andrey Zvyagnitsev resulting in a very beautiful looking film that contrasts the bleakest of the bleak plots.

That shot of the guy on the rock and the whale skeleton on the beach, in my mind there is a chessboard on the sand between the two of them, the man looks up and the Grim Reaper with Scythe is standing beside him the Reaper looks at the chessboard and distractedly says "aahh Remi".😀

You may be referring to Bergmans - The Seventh Seal.

It's a great film from the 60s - one of my faves by Ingmar.

 

edit: actually from 1957 - just saw it again last night

Lets have a crack at an English language film. Unlike some of you here I have seen few foreign language fillums.

The Man Without a Past (2002) by Aki Kaurismäki a master of extraordinarily mundane from Finland. Almost an "anti-David-Lynch" although their paths and approaches are more of a parallel than a negation of each other in many ways.

and this is surely one of the many carry-on franchise incarnations - "Carry on Matron" (1972) perhaps?

correctamundo!!!

 

Henry and June (1990) and adaptation of Anais Nin book/memoir re her (more than) friendship with Henry Miller and June Miller. Actually the first film in history to receive an R rating (the R rating just having been dreamt up to supplement the NC-17 around the time of its release). Although in Aus release (in my view correctly) rated M, almost everywhere else worldwide it was rated R or R18+ or outright banned. Kuhrrrrazie! with a capital K!

 

And that is actually Uma Thurman, in the second photo with Maria de Medeiros, in an early-ish role, post modeling career and of course before the Tarantino fame.
