Aleksandr Rogozhkin

Zhizn s idiotom (Living with an Idiot)

Edition 1994
65' - 1993 - Comedy - Dialogue: Russian
Director: Aleksandr Rogozhkin With: Anzhelika Nevolina, Sergey Migitsko, Anatoli Romantsov, Viktor Bychkov
A humanist intellectual (Anatoli Romantsov) visits a state clinic and, partly to punish himself for the lack of concern over his first wife's death, picks a seemingly sedate lunatic (Sergey Migitsko) to be an inspiration for his writings. The loon's congenial behaviour appears to support the writer's theory that only circumstances separate a sound mind from an unsound one. However, a rampage of destruction, followed by the violent rape of the writer's languid second wife (Angelika Nevolina), unhinges his theory.
