"Three Poplars at Plyushchikha (1968)" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

The great, the mighty Soviet Union, a country that is immensely respected and feared. It has already become into oblivion along with the film industry, which is still admired by the fans, experiencing an understandable nostalgia (taking into account that, in what is now become Russian cinema). The USSR was one of the first countries to free women from the age-old prejudices
Freed ... And when someone -. Ever asked what the price paid for the emancipation of our grandmothers, such a welcome for Russian suffragettes (if any were)? If the West, as usual, this mighty process was, in spite of the woman's displeasure outbreak of the French Revolution and the Civil War in the United States, naturally, in the USSR, as always, it happened abruptly, taking away the beautiful half of humanity the right to be happy.
Judge for yourself - could there be a pretty woman whom feminism did not give anything, except for the right to work alongside men, thus obtaining a double portion of the useful physical labor? Add to that the almost complete absence of contraception, and as a result, an infinite number of abortions, and even bearded opinion that "the women still place behind the stove." The picture emerges not pleasant. Involuntarily begs allusion to no less brilliant than the director of the tape, the Faith Marecki and a picture of her participation "Member of the Government", which by its statement: "I stand before you, a simple Russian woman", the body run goose, but in the soul is born natural sense of defiance even contrary to common sense.
But this is only a prelude to an enthusiastic review of the film of the great Russian director Tatiana Lioznova. A man who gave up the family in the name of art, women, because of which it is possible to think that the Russian farmhand still pereterpit all, and still manage to do so in spite of everything.
I would call this picture, best of all, it was filmed in the Soviet Union (except, perhaps, the masterpiece "go to fight some old", but he is a friend, not less native, but still ...), "the anthem of feminism", as someone once dubbed the band "Agora" . Do not open, not splashing in the face of his arrogance feminism and quiet, downtrodden, like the main character Niurka.
that the film gives rise behind a lot of rhetoric, like life itself, questions, and we are not talking, that he put so perfectly, so exactly what I feel like I'm not looking artwork with their shortcomings, and chronicled the life of generations of Russian women, when they seem to be already released, but did not say what to do with this freedom. Gave rights, and so it remained barbarous Russ, I can not imagine that there is such a thing as freedom. Freedom is not to create the madness, and to be happy, not paying attention to public censure. Who are Nyurkin husband, her neighbors, relatives, if she stumbled on his luck, the only way out of the hopelessness of the now? Who dares to condemn it if the flash of joy in her life almost stopped already shifted only in the maternal instinct? And life, for "Method Hitch", measured by the number of moments when with happiness grasps spirit. And what if Nyurka The orderly existence of the already hateful husband if happiness in her life was limited to pre-wedding euphoria and "Tenderness" in a car with a stranger, the only one who understood her.
Paradoxically, but this "simple Russian woman" with incredibly beautiful soul can be compared to Anna Karenina. Between the works of the abyss, but the essence is the same - a rebellion in the name of happiness, which is so much the way life is, will not lead to anything good. The only difference is that Anna threw the ranks challenge, for which he paid, and Nura ... polite society. I knew she must be that people do not tolerate other people's happiness, but life does not make a hyperbole. It would be better all the "grandly, nobly, in the old way»
course, praises the cast, composer. (Pakhmutova - another female phenomenon in Soviet art), the operator ... Every detail is significant, even the skirt of the main character, when she sits in the taxi to Ephraim.
What else to say? In this picture, such an abyss that no one had, perhaps, not cover up to the end. But this is art - an attempt to reflect.
