In Moscow 1953 the anti-Jewish purges are ongoing and Stalin is on his deathbed. When General Yuri Glinsky, a military surgeon, tries to escape, he is abducted, taken to the lowest rungs of hell and deposited at the heart of the enigma.

MUBI's take

Liberally adapted from Joseph Brodsky’s “In a Room and a Half,” this slippery and surreal, paranoid, and poetic postwar satire by Aleksei German (Hard to Be a God) is truly one of a kind. A triumph, both a mesmerizing feat of filmmaking and an inventive portrait of Stalin’s Russia.
