The Very Same Munchhausen - Soviet art of the two-part TV movie in 1979, filmed at the Studio "Mosfilm" commissioned by Central television of the USSR. The script Grigory Gorin created at the remote based on the works of Rudolf Erich the Raspe about the adventures of Baron Munchausen. The film premiered on 1 January 1980, DH Soviet Union.
Literary source material for the script was the play by Grigory Gorin "the Most truthful", which was a success in the theater of the Soviet Army (Munchausen — Vladimir Zeldin). Mark Zakharov very much and he decided to move it to the television screen. In the course of work on the script of the play was seriously reworked and changed much compared to the theatrical version. Music by Alexey Rybnikov also was originally written for the play.

The film takes place in Germany (according to the chronology of the plot in 1779).

The film was shot in Germany, in the socialist part — GDR (real Munchausen lived near Hanover in Bodenwerder, located on the territory of the capitalist FRG). To organize the shooting on the territory of a friendly socialist GDR was much easier, and therefore shooting steel street Wernigerode, had "authentic" look and almost not affected during the war. The extras and the episodes have involved German actors and citizens.

Here lives in Germany is the most honest man, the Baron Munchausen. And everyone just takes it as a storyteller, living in a fantasy world. Only now everything he says is true.

Munchausen lives in his castle with a charming girl Martha. They have long been thinking about the wedding, but there is one problem: the Baron is married. In his youth, he was by the will of the parents from purely practical considerations, married to Jacobini background Dutten with which he was never associated tender feelings. She lives alone, with an adult son Theophilus. Munchausen seeking a divorce. Authorization may be given only a Duke, but a prose writer jakobine and her lover energetic Henry Raskopf (Abdulov) strongly oppose it.

The way it happens — by signing the divorce papers, Munchausen wrote in the column "number" of 32 may — according to his calculations, in a calendar error had crept in, and this year should be another one day. But the ideas and the astronomical observations of Baron do not matter, and all take his actions as another challenge to public order. There is a scandal. The court, deeming himself insulted, refuses to approve the divorce. From Baron require the abdication: it must admit all their stories are empty fantasies, in writing, the points to abandon all that he wrote and spoke. Friends, servants, Mar — all persuade the Baron to obey.

And he obeys. And "dying." Becomes a normal florist - Muller. "To be Muller in Germany is to be Ivanov in Russia."

And amazing. From the living troublemaker Baron became a dead celebrity prose writer jakobine publishes "the adventures of Baron". The memoirs of Baron not just edited — they are embellished and complemented by outright fabrications. About Munchausen sing songs in restaurants and draw pictures. It is called "a great man, misunderstood by contemporaries", and "32nd of may" (the day of the 3-year anniversary of his death) on the main square of the city opened a monument to the Baron.

Not warzaw lies around him, Baron Munchausen decides to rise again.

And it wants to send a cannon on the moon. To check.

And he's going to the moon, uttering his famous words:

I understand what your trouble: you are too serious! An intelligent face is not a sign of intelligence, gentlemen. All stupidity on earth are done with this expression. Smile, gentlemen! Smile!



Monument to Oleg Yankovsky in the form of Munchausen (Saratov)

Great movie. Great actors. Jokes, puns, aphorisms. A bit of madness and absurdity.

For me, the film resonates with the "Ordinary miracle". These two films form a kind of dilogy.  The Baron is a little older, moved with Martha from the castle, to a distant estate and became a Magician.

I decided to go back.  Wink

To Kill a Dragon (Russian: Убить дракона, translit. Ubit drakona) is a 1989 Soviet-German parable fantasy film based on the play of Evgeny Shvarts Dragon (1942–44), directed by Mark Zakharov (marking his final film). Year 1988



As usual Zakharov, theatrical philosophical parable.

On freedom and fear. About where the "dragon".

Great actors and dialogues.

A wandering knight Lancelot, a distant descendant on the maternal side of the famous Sir Lancelot, comes to a city which has been ruled by a fierce dragon for four hundred years. Most of the residents do not want to be rescued from the tyranny of the monstrous serpent, explaining its historical importance.

Lancelot, saving the Dragon's victim, an innocent girl, challenges the monster to a fight. In the underground city there are people who help the knight to find weapons and get ready for an unequal fight. Lancelot defeats the Dragon, but he gets wounded and goes into hiding. In the city the dragon's rule is replaced by chaos.

Gradually, the bygone story becomes the past, and the city is getting new decrees. After the fight with the Dragon, the city mayor who at his rule served as a puppet claims victory over the Dragon. Lancelot is forced to return to the city to explain to the residents that in itself the death of the Dragon only means that it is time for each kill a dragon in themselves and that he will make all residents to do so. However, as he does so, the inhabitants of the town come to see him as the ne§xt dragon and bow before their new master.

Lancelot goes away from the people. He sees children playing with the Dragon who has shapeshifted from a dark and cynical warlord to a good-natured bearded man. The Dragon offers not to continue battling with the children present but Lancelot refuses. The Dragon declares that the most interesting bit is about to begin.

And we finish with Zakharov's films.

Once I'm on the previous films little of yourself said. Just quoting Wikipedia. But I'm not an expert on movies. I just like them.

So.

The House That Swift Built (Russian: Дом, который построил Свифт, translit. Dom, kotoryj postroil Svift) is a 1982 Soviet comedy film directed by Mark Zakharov based on the eponymous play by Grigori Gorin about writer Jonathan Swift.

Outstanding British writer Jonathan Swift — one of the most mysterious writers of the late XVII — early XVIII centuries, the author of the famous book "Gulliver's Journey" and sharp satirical pamphlets, all his life was also a priest, Dean (rector) of St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin, and at the end of his life he was declared crazy. In his will, the money and the house Dean swift left in favor of the mentally ill.

Fictional characters from the works of swift's lilliput, the giants Yahoos, Houyhnhnms — inhabit the house that swift built (A. Jankowski). Reality here is closely intertwined with fiction, objects from one turn into another, and it is impossible to understand where the real events, and where the mystification or fantasy satirist. For treatment, a psychiatrist, Dr. Simpson (A. Abdulov) is sent to swift. It is he who, together with the audience, will experience all the amazing events in this house in order to understand and comprehend the lonely genius artist.

The film is based on real facts from the life of Jonathan Swift, though far from biographical accuracy. Therefore, the play Gr. Gorina, on which the film is made, has the subtitle "Theatrical fantasy".

This film is little known. If other films of Mark Zakharov regularly shown on TV, this is rare.

He's gloomy. And full of surrealism.

Under the influence of Swift works everything is transformed. Sage giant by alcoholism turns into layman of average height, and then rise again. The policeman is trying to break out of a series of similar reincarnations. The government sends a psychiatrist to swift for fear of falling on them flying city. Materialist doctor becomes first Gulliver, and then by swift for the tour from the future.

At the same time, a lot of questions will remain open:"are the actors Hired by the Dean or are they really the characters of Gulliver's Journey?""and" does anyone die for the whole movie really?"

The house that swift built donapost, Movies, the Soviet Union, surrealism Pour oil into the flames of surrealism grotesque surroundings (but at least the same creepy mask) and music that is not closer in spirit to the same pretty romantic films Zakharov (in the final "Home..."almost directly emphasizes the senselessness of the romantic line of the film), and almost to the "Nightmare before Halloween".

Since childhood, I remember the love triangle of midgets. It's such a sad scene.

And that really does finish up with Zakharov.

Although he has two films, one about I can still tell.

But he's a theater Director.  And he has a cult production in the Theater of Lenin Komsomol.

Rock-Opera "Juno and Avos".

Composer Alexei Rybnikov on poems by Andrei Voznesensky.  And Mark Zakharov's production.

It was first performed in 1981 in the Lenkom Theatre. Main roles in the premiere performed by Soviet stars Nikolai Karachentsov and Elena Shanina.

The opera is named after the two ships Juno and Avos that constituted the expedition headed by Russian explorer Nikolai Rezanov. The plot is based on the love story of Nikolai Rezanov and Concepción Argüello, a 15-year-old daughter of José Darío Argüello, the colonial governor of Spanish California.

Here are the details - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juno_and_Avos_(opera)

One of the ships Ryazanov, was called Avos. Here is the story about the Russian philosophical concept - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_avos%27  Smiley

This spectacle show and now. But it is not the same. No Ryazanov-Karachentseva. I wish I'd ever seen you live.

Video of the classic production of 1983. Unfortunately the best quality is not found - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNtYnsELcJU

My favorite song from the play -

Under the Russian flag of St. Andrew
And with the motto - Avos.


Юнона и Авось (Песня моряков "Авось")


The most famous Aria of this Opera

I'll never forget you.
I'll never see you.


Николай Караченцов - Я тебя никогда не забуду


White rose hip
For love does not say the price,
Only life one, life one, life one.

Today the 8th of March. International women day.

The film is the same today. Easy, fun, light movie about a strong woman.

Hussar Ballad

The Hussar Ballad  is a 1962 Soviet musical film by Eldar Ryazanov, filmed on Mosfilm.

The film is based on the play "A Long Time Ago" by Alexander Gladkov. 
The film's musical score and songs were written by Tikhon Khrennikov.

It is believed that the prototype Shurochki Azarova — cavalryman-maiden of the Patriotic war of 1812 Nadezhda Durova. However, the Creator of the character Alexander Gladkov refutes this, although the film has a very recognizable coincidence with the "Notes cavalryman girls".

Everything you say in the movie verses.

The film proved so popular with Soviet audiences that poruchik Rzhevsky became quite a folklore character, featured in numerous jokes.

It starts so. Shura (Alexander) Azarov, 18 year old girl. He lives and is brought up with his uncle, a retired staff major. The major and the nurse of Shurochka (Batman major) taught her a great to stay the saddle and fence.

It comes hussar Lieutenant Dmitry Rzhevsky. He's engaged to Shura in absentia. He's not happy about a future meeting with a bride, drawing her Cutesy fashionista.

Wanting to show her uncle a fancy dress for the upcoming ball, she runs out into the garden, dressed with a cornet, and faces the nose to nose with the future groom. Latest Sascha takes for the relative of the bride and trying to figure out how that is silly.

Such a biased attitude resents the girl, and she decides to take a little revenge on him. At their meeting Shurochka with might and main and with obvious pleasure plays a role of the narrow-minded girl who thinks of fashionable novels, embroidery and dreams of "ideal love". Rzhevskiy horrified him want to marry a fool! At the first opportunity, he hurries to run out of the room, pretty amused by the young prankster. However, like her Lieutenant, though she doesn't admit it even to herself.

And here, at the ball announce the beginning of the war with Napoleon.

All the guests are leaving. Men are preparing to go to the front, and women are discussing how they can help the front. Sascha remains one and decides to run away from home in the uniform of a cornet to arms to defend their Homeland. Uncle Ivan agrees to be her ordinary.

And begins her adventures in the war. Fate of course brings her to the Rzhevsky.

And of course it all ends with love.

Cute concept and a politically progressive message. Right in line with the classic movies from the 1960's period. There are a lot of cinematic jewels from the period.

Sorry, there's no progressive political message.

That's patriotism.

And so this option operetta. With adventures and love.

Well, in the USSR, the equality of women was stated since the beginning. Though of course the reality was different from slogans.

Today, may 9. Victory Day.

Well, the film about the war.

Only Old Men Are Going to Battle



Soviet feature film 1973 directed by Leonid Bykov, telling about the everyday life of fighter pilots during the Great Patriotic War.

Many phrases of the characters in the movie went on quotes, becoming part of the Soviet and post-Soviet folklore. To heroes of the film, captain Titarenko and mechanic Makarych monuments in Kiev and Kharkov respectively were established.

Film about fighter pilots. There's a singing squadron. It is so named for the ensemble of pilots singing between departures.

В бой идут одни «старики» - Смуглянка


In this squadron comes replenishment. And then, the story of men and war.  Many episodes and characters had real prototypes. Drama and humor.

And the main words - WE LIVE.

It's a great movie.

I can only remember that:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Red_Tent_(film)

The Red Tent (Russian: Красная палатка, translit. Krasnaya palatka; Italian: La tenda rossa; Spanish: La tienda roja) is a joint Soviet/Italian 1969 film directed by Mikhail Kalatozov.

The film is based on the story of the mission to rescue Umberto Nobile and the other survivors of the crash of the Airship Italia. It features Sean Connery as Roald Amundsen and Peter Finch as Nobile. The script was adapted by Yuri Nagibin and Mikhail Kalatozov from Nagibin's novel of the same title. Nagibin couldn't complete the script due to a series of conflicts with the producer, who insisted on expanding the role of his mistress Claudia Cardinale, and it was completed by de Concini and Bolt.[/i]

I'm not hooked and I really was not looking.

There are other movies where balloons or airships play a role in the plot or are a symbol. But they are not important
