Probably best movie of the decade
20 March 2005 | by (Ukraine) – See all my reviews

The 40th- yearly 50th years of the soviet cinema were very difficult due to severe censorship. Official propaganda didn't pass movies which didn't glorify Stalin and communist party. Moreover WWII damaged cinematography seriously. That's why release of Svadba(aka Marriage) is the enormous success for cinema fans. Great directing, great plot/dialogs, great actors(Garin,Fedorova,Ranevskaya,Gribov,Abdulov) turned this movie into the real masterpiece. Even now,60 years after Svadba's appearance, this movie remains the greatest classic production of the Russian cinema.

My rate:9/10
