Hard to Be a God

Trudno byt' bogom

Directed by Aleksei German
Russia, 2013


An Earth scientist is sent to a planet that resembles our own during the Middle Ages—and he must not interfere in the planet’s political or historical development. Treated by the planet’s natives as a kind of divinity, he is both godlike and impotent in the face of chaos and brutality.
