FORGOTTEN TUNE FOR FLUTE – Eldar Ryazanov

О смене эпох, удивительной касте советских чиновников, предательстве, стяжательстве, слабохарактерности, верности, любви и смерти.

 

Tribute to one of Russia’s best-loved Soviet-era film directors who has passed away recently. He became an icon of popular culture through tragi-comedies that gently satirised daily life in the USSR.

With an introduction by Natalia Rubinstein, translated into English by Dr. Lyudmila Razumova

 

Formerly a talented flutist but at present a prosperous businessman suddenly falls in love with a nurse… A formal prosperity does not make him happy any more, his forgotten dreams are revived…But it is a thankless task to retell the contents of Eldar Ryazanov’s comedies, it is necessary to see them…
