Storyline

This is an interesting yet bizarre little tale of a fictional (as far as I know, anyway) experiment performed during the Stalin-controlled years in the USSR. The main character is changed from a woman into a man. This is part of a larger plan to change more women into men and have a stronger work-force/army, etc. It's a very in-depth character study of the main character, who tries to fit into a world that she (now 'he') doesn't really understand, especially since she's now a man ... Stalin dislikes the results of the experiments and has the scientist killed. The main character then goes off to live a life as a simple, unknown everyday Soviet, but is inexplicably drawn into larger and larger schemes (somewhat reminiscent of "Forrest Gump" in that way). (s)He has run-ins with different important characters, including his ex-boyfriend from his days of being a woman, as well as going on a demented quest for the nurse with whom he possibly fell in love after the operation...

Interesting film.
16 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. It was odd, cynical, and worth mulling over. It raises interesting questions about patriotism and what it means to be a hero. Evkodim's transformation to and from the ideal Soviet man was fascinating.

I liked the use of documentary-style filming to show the use of propaganda in Evkodim's life, the general weirdness of it all, and the ending.

If you're in the mood for something different - really, really different - you should try watching Hammer and Sickle, and if it's too weird for you, you can have a whole lot of fun trying to retell the story to your friends. See? There's no downside.
