Agony

Elem Klimov / SSSR 1981 / 138 min. / 15 years / 35mm
The end of an epoch is captured in parallel with the fate of the protagonist – this is how a legendary historical drama is built about the unfettered mystic Rasputin, who enjoyed the favour of Tsar Nicholas II that ruled the Russian Empire until 1917. One of the closely watched works by Soviet film censorship in the 1970s when it was made.
