The asthenic syndrome
Muratova, Kira (1989)
A surrealist film about a doctor who has recently lost her husband and is struggling to come to terms with her loss.
Story-line appears somewhat disjointed, the impact of disillusion, despair, anger and general asthenia in society comes through in an unsettling and compelling way.
Off-air recording - Channel 4, 12/10/97. With English subtitles.
