Агония

Elem Klimov Kesatuan Soviet, 1975

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.
