Storyline

Anatoli Yefremovich Novoseltsev works in a statistics institution, whose director is an unattractive and bossy woman. An old friend of his, Yuri Grigorievich Samokhvalov, who gets appointed assistant director of the institution, wants to make Novoseltsev the head of the department but encounters objections from Ludmila Prokopievna Kalugina, the director. Samokhvalov then advises Novoseltsev to lightly hit on the boss. Ironically, Novoseltsev and Kalugina fall in love with each other... Written by Denis Chebikin <chebikin@mit.edu>

Trivia

In one scene, Olga Ryzhova reads the poem "O, moy zastenchivyy geroy..." by Bella Akhmadulina. The poem, written in 1960 or 1961, was still unpublished when the film was released, and Svetlana Nemolyaeva, who played Ryzhova, had to write copies of the poem by hand and send them to her fans for several years after 1977.

Goofs

When Yuri is talking to Anatoli and Olga inside Lyudmila's office the knot of his necktie is positioned in a way that reveals a wide blue stripe of the necktie in one shot and almost completely hides this same stripe in the next one. See more »

Quotes

Samokhvalov: It's just that... it compromises you.
Kalugina: I have had such a spotless reputation, it's about time I were compromised.
