BFMAF 2019 - The Asthenic Syndrome

Muratova’s most celebrated film, the epic The Asthenic Syndrome, winner of the Silver Bear at the 1990 Berlinale, has been called ‘a magnificent fresco’ and an ‘apocalypse.’ Creating vivid images of desperate characters determined to survive, she captures and divines the state of the USSR on the eve of its collapse. A searing portrait of individual malaise and collective apathy, full of poly- phonic elements, the film stuns the viewer with shock therapy, destroying every illusion.
