| Making Arrangements to keep going, with great on stage like acting.
This excellent and underrated movie shows us how people tried to survive in the time of Revolution and War .I spite of the Banners that read "The Kingdom of Workers And Peasants shall be eternal" The underlying cynicism with respect to government and authority is widespread ... Like in "Master and Margarita", the Devil hates stupidity. His harvest was one of the richest at this period and time in a country called "Bolshavia" (Bolshevik a word for Russian Communism). I got this movie from a Russian friend, totally unaware about it, but pleasantly surprised about the quality of acting and content. Ordinary Canadians might find it odd that a movie like this could get stranded in a Canadian videostore. The Canadian awareness of Russian movies is next to zero, except for titles that have been digested by the media. It's a real shame that movies like "Cynics" will not get a larger western audience.
