HARD TO BE A GOD

HARD TO BE A GOD screens at Close-Up (18 MAR 19:30):
A work of staggeringly visceral cinema, the epic, phantasmagoric final film of late Russian cinema god Alexei German imagines a world in which the Renaissance never happened.
Adapted from a cult science-fiction novel by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky the film is set on an alien planet mired in the savagery and squalor of a never-ending Middle Ages. The film’s immersive, in-the-muck canvas owes precious little to space opera and much to the art of Bruegel and Bosch.
