Agony Diarahkan oleh Elem Klimov

Apa yang orang lain katakan?

  • comeandsee's rating of the film Agony

    interesting in so much as it displays the awkward nature of Klimov's transition from bitter satire to serious historical work. Immensely ill disciplined with some scenes of awkward humour, some musical numbers and more than a few that just dont make sense and should have been edited out. once again critiques of the Soviets and christian iconography abound. ambitious, engaging but ultimately an awkward failure.

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Agony

    A mesmerizing film that fuses historic footage of Russia in 1916 with the bizarrely haunting tale of Rasputin and the Romanov family. Many scenes are like paintings - graceful, soft colours, and stoic performances. Rasputin is, of course, manic and psychosis - his downfall paralleled by the fall of the Imperial family. It would have been nice to see more of the revolutions, but overall a lavish and beautiful film.

  • Francisco R.'s rating of the film Agony

    It's definitely an unfocused film, Klimov seems to have the appropiate idea combining doc footage within the movie but the truth is, the historical details depicted are not on par with the plot, which simplifies to the point of having only a handful of largely unconnected crucial moments thrown in succession, which left me a bit startled since Klimov's artistry is so adroit here. A very interesting film nonetheless.

  • Henrique Verkündigung's rating of the film Agony

    Obviously the major question that Klimov tries to make understand in this film is the theme of power, the insanity of power and he uses Rasputin controversial figure and story to get to the his point. The film it's marvelous, full of references to other directors, painters (the frames where he composed painting scenes) and has great performances, mainly Petrenko's.

  • redux's rating of the film Agony

    Klimov is a genius, and this film is up there with 'Come and See', in a place reserved for truly exquisite, mindblowing cinema. Even if he denies it.

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Agony

    On gardera surtout l'extraordinaire interprétation d' Alexei Petrenko dans le rôle du dément personnage. Pour le reste, malgré une constante volonté d'accrocher à la vérité historique ou d'en rester proche, par l'insert de séquences documentaires, le film oscille sans cesse entre le baroque, le didactisme et une certaine grandiloquence brouillonne, sans jamais trouver ses marques

  • itwstlnd's rating of the film Agony

    Elen Klimov and Aleksei Petrenko join talents to recreate the hallucinatory aura of Rasputin, but more importantly, his talent at unveiling the madness ruling (disastrously) tzarist Russia. His homicide will not be an act of vengeance against an enemy of the ruling class, but a panicked response in front of a distorting mirror

  • Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Agony

    A film less about Rasputin, and more about the people that surrounded him. It is also an intriguing film, if you consider the prevailing conditions in USSR when this film was made. I am privileged to have met Klimov in Hyderabad, India in 1986. My full review is at
