"That's Entertainment!," Communist style. A documentary about movie musicals produced during the height of the old Soviet bloc. Comrades drive tractors, sweep factory floors, feed farm animals, harvest crops, all the while singing their hearts out about the joys of socialism. Included are interviews with people involved in the making of some of these movies, as well as a film historian and nostalgic moviegoers. Written by

All Singing! All Dancing! All Marxist Musicals!

These movies offered escape, hope and hit songs. They were part of another Socialist mythology, one that offered a positive view: Happiness and the good life.
The end credits dedicate the film "to Karl Marx, without whom none of this would have been necessary." See more
