For those framiliar with the famous Strugatsky brothers, you'll know how big they are in Eastern Europe and how many films have been adapted from their work, specifically the likes of Tarkovsky's Stalker, Konstantin Lopushansky's Gadkie Lebedi, and most recently The Inhabited Island. Hard to be a God is one film which can't be found on IMDb, and while we reported on some stills earlier, we weren't able to find any footage. Now that's changed courtesy of a Russian tv station interviewing one of the main actors so we pulled out all the footage for your enjoyment.
