directors Grigori Kozintsev, Leonid Trauberg - 1931 - 1'20 - composer Dmitri Shostakovich
A young teacher after graduation is going to marry her fiancé and work in the city, suddenly gets assigned to Altai and not wanting to be a deserter of the labor front, sacrifices his personal life and comfort and agrees to departure.
It was originally planned as a silent film, but it was eventually released with a soundtrack comprising sound effects, some dialogue (recorded after the filming) and a full orchestral score by Dmitri Shostakovich. The film, about a young teacher sent to work in Siberia, is in a realist mode and addresses three political topics then current: education, technology, and the elimination of the kulaks.
Long and happy life
director Gennadii Shpalikov- 1966 - 1'16
The two young people met by chance and spent one evening together. Sympathy felt could develop into a deep feeling. But in the morning they felt the emptiness and awkwardness and broke under whatever pretext, without even trying to explain.
