Hells Bells...
3 June 2019 | by manfromplanetxSee all my reviews

A wonderfully entertaining bitter sweet satire based on short stories written by Vasily Shukshin.. Nikolai Knyazev played by the films director Sergey Nikonenko has a unique talent for fixing and building things and is currently working on a perpetual motion machine in his backyard. He is generous and is warm hearted but for good reason most of the locals think he is a little crazy. The other side to eccentric Knyazev is his berating theoretical ravings on personal responsibility to the "state" , having spent years working on a socialist philosophical treatise, he daydreams away envisioning himself as someone famous a saviour looking down scornfully over all the Earths sinners...It is a beautifully composed film an excellent adaptation of the author who's interest was the ordinary everyday people of the Soviet Union. With a fabulous cast of extras there is much humour, laced with a deeper melancholic touching tone Hells Bells is a marvellous Soviet Classic film delight. Highly Recommended !!
