| Brilliant satirical comedy picturing early Soviet state rural life
In my opinion, a must-see for anyone who is interested in what really was happening in Soviet Union's villages in 1920-1930, in the period of collectivization and creation of collective farms. Intelligent, bitter and vivid humor and actor's performance make this film outstanding in Soviet comedy genre. One of the best Lev Durov's roles, and you don't have many actors of Durov's caliber in world's cinema. Various aspects of Russian traditional rural mentality, peasant's mindset and lifestyle are shown through interesting situations in the background of new communist order and ideas intruding centuries-old Russian peasant lifestyle. Satire on communist values and disorder in Russian village of these years is rare to be found in Soviet cinema, and it's pictured at the highest artistic level in this film.
