Cinema Park



“Assa” immortalised the musical mastery of such Russian legends as Viktor Tsoi, Boris Grebenshikov, and Zhanna Aguzarova.  For those born in the 80s-Russia, Assa is a nostalgic time machine; for the rest of us, this film is a manual on the great epoch. Assa epitomised illegal rock-n-roll of that period. A rebellious nurse dumps her stingy gangster boyfriend for the poor artist she falls in love with. No matter the ending, Assa will make believe in love.
