Employees of the House of Culture are preparing for the annual event - costumed Christmas carnival. The entertainment program includes solo, dance and circus acts, as well as performances of a jazz orchestra, a magician and clowns. Serafim Ivanovich Ogurtsov, appointed acting director of the House of Culture, having familiarized himself with the program, did not approve it, since, as he believes, everything must be done at a high level and thoroughly.Written by
If you have Prime, the movie is included. It's in Russian, which I do not understand, but the music and production make it 100% watchable. The print is pristine, too.
Plot (from Wikipedia) It is New Year's Eve and the employees of a House of culture are ready with their annual New Year's entertainment program. It includes a lot of dancing and singing, jazz band performance and even magic tricks. Suddenly, an announcement is made that a new director has been appointed and that he is arriving shortly. Comrade Ogurtsov arrives in time to review and disapprove of the scheduled entertainment. To him, holiday fun has a different meaning. He imagines speakers reading annual reports to show the club's progress over the year, and, perhaps, a bit of serious music, something from the Classics, played by the Veterans' orchestra.
Obviously, no one wants to change the program a few hours before the show, much less to replace it with something so boring! Now everyone has to team up in order to prevent Ogurtsov from getting to the stage. As some of them trap Ogurtsov one way or another, others perform their scheduled pieces and celebrate New Year's Eve.
