de Aleksei German

Synopsis

A group of scientists are sent to the planet Arkanar, where the civilization is stuck in the darkest Medieval times. It’s a dirty and brutal land, where one of the researchers is taken for the illegitimate son of God. Aesthetically astonishing, Hard to Be a God is the epic adaptation of the novel by the Strugatsky brothers, shot and edited over more than a decade.
