Among the many party, class-loyal directors he was almost the first to film language means abandoned industrial proletariat propaganda in the country, has just had rejected Stalin's personality cult. Thereby Hutsiev breathed a little air of freedom, as required by the Soviet architects of the future: Parajanov, Tarkovsky, Shepitko. And the need for the country itself, where the great directors ruined state policy. Finally triumphed slogan 'films for art's sake', though not for long, did not disclose to the maximum, still left a significant mark in the history of world cinema.
Most importantly, debut Hutsieva 'Spring on Zarechnaya Street', taken together with the classmate from VGIK Mironer Felix - this is a movie for people and about people. Not seasoned worker-peasant spirit of commitment to the ideals of communism, it brilliantly conveys life and the social fabric of those years.

Savchenko steelmaker, played the future People's Artist of the RSFSR Nikolai Rybnikov, leader-production at the local factory, selflessly falls in love with his teacher Tatyana Sergeevna (actress Nina Ivanova) - not the aged harmful woman, and a young, beautiful girl ... too bad as it first seems. Or rather, it is closed. It appears distant from the realities of the local person, and seemed afraid of the industrial city, its society and order. Brought up on the ideals of poetry, classical music, Tatyana never comes close to Sasha Savchenko, even friendly, not to mention heart.
Savchenko And oh, how it wants to! More at the first meeting he tries to seduce the girl flirting village of, in fact, a different world, and fails: it behaves in the most pragmatic way, closed almost to a quick rejection. And then the situation is not made easier, the teacher-student relations continue to torment the steelmaker. But why? After all, you can just drop everything and go to habalki Zina - she give herself with open arms, and like her a lot: for example, my friend with the guitar constantly lugging around them girls, did not hesitate to spend an evening with a rather suspicious man. No, Alex is struggling to please the teacher, as he can. Or maybe he maximum antiquated methods, why rages in class in an attempt to attract attention and bails for Tatiana Sergeyevna after them like a boy.

He wants to become a girl, Tatiana is not a couple of weeks for it.
It turns out that because of the desire to please, he reveals a previously unseen features, with never imbued with an academic culture. A good moment to get close to Tatyana Savchenko and did not take advantage when the ran quietly out of the room with the radio broadcast music of Rachmaninoff. And the poems did not work, there was no passion for him. Literature was far as the hero, and has remained. Here it should be clarified that the image remains constant, it does not change. He only reveals, so to speak, without re-direct the essence of re-education. Village of Savchenko will not pull out, but that's a great start to act. You could say it was Tatiana is also needed for true adulthood, departing from prolonged puberty, why metaphorically looks interesting profession last. Reveals the personality traits of Alexander, he starts to think about going to the heights like the glorification of the names.

It becomes clear that Tatiana - woman, not a proletarian cold machine. And it is important first of all not to build communism, not to be strict and closed the teacher and breathe life. Therefore, it is one to cry when people get tired tolerate rejection caused by the physical interpretation of the law society, where the action is equal to counteraction.
And with spring comes the thaw. Thaw in the life of the city, which has nothing to do with Khrushchev. Zarechnaya street as if coming out of hibernation. In place of dark evenings in the school come bright and picturesque places. Just with the onset of the first warm days come and is anticipated re heroes. Audience is very important to feel for drama Savchenko managed to really believe in it, as well as the intention thereof.
