Sergei Solovyov Soviet Union, 1987

Jugu Abraham's rating of the film ASSA

A brave new film in its day. Amazing that this film shows a lead character being a fan of musician Nick Cave way back in 1987. It is a film hoping for change as felt by youngsters in USSR at that time. A weak point in the film: introducing an incorrect fact that the first word spoken by the Biblical Noah after the floods was "Assa."
