  • Review

    The movie is based on the novel by the Strugatsky brothers in 1964. It took 13 years to complete this masterpiece from planning to completion. This is a story of an absolute evil ruling planet named Arkanar. The messengers from Earth are on a mission to implant humanism at Arkanar which reminisces of a medieval hell. German tried to finish up editing Hard to be a God but passed away February 2013. His son Alexey German Jr. finished the editorials and post-production work and completed the film. The film flows without any clear central narrative. It is a super-universal masterpiece that does not compromise any customs. Abandoning a heroic figure or a grand historical view, German challenges the fundamental problems. For him, this was a film about Russia, and his way of seeking the unforeseeable significance and sensibility. [JANG Byungwon]
