Selection 17/09
1. Operation 'Y' & Other Shurik's Adventures
(1965) by Leonid Gayday - 96 min
The humor of great Gaidai is timeless. His comedies are free from edifying or obtrusiveness, he easily managed to avoid hackneyed cliches and smutty jokes. Phrases from his comedies have become winged and are widely used in Russia till date. ‘A cinema comedy should have as few words as possible, and those words must be laconic, sharp-cut and take an unerring aim’ – Gaidai said, and he was as good as his word.
2. Жиних
(1962) by Elem Klimov - 10 min
