Hard to be a God (18)

Hard to be a God (18)

Drama, Sci-Fi

A group of scientists is sent to the planet Arkanar to help the local civilization, which is in the Medieval phase of its own history, to find the right path to progress. Their task is a difficult one: they cannot interfere violently and in no case can they kill.

The critical consensus

A slo-mo kaleidoscope of medieval squalor, fear and pandemonium, Alexei German’s three-hour epic isn’t easy to watch, but it is awe-inspiring in its own monumentally mad way.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 06/08/2015

As sci-fi medieval fantasy, the late Aleksei German’s extraterrestrial epic makes Game of Thrones look like musical chairs.
