Storyline

A young woman arrives in her school where she must teach for the first time. Her task consists in teaching a class of adults to read and write. All her students are male, ranging from boys to old men, and they are rather rowdy and difficult. All the more as a young hooligan dares write her on a test paper that he loves her. Feeling harassed by the young man, she is defended by other students. But she more or less feels the young bad boy's love is true and when this one is lying on his dying bed, after being stabbed by the other students, she solaces him by kissing him tenderly. Written by Guy Bellinger

Mayakovsky Acts!
13 April 2017 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

Filmed in Petrograd just six months after the Russian Revolution, 'The Young Lady and the Hooligan' is a precious historical document both as a Soviet equivalent of 'Blackboard Jungle' stressing the contemporary importance of adult education, and as the only surviving film written, co-directed by and starring the great Russian poet, Vladimir Mayakovsky (1893-1930), who displays both a vigorous command of the film medium and star quality as a screen actor.

Employing only one subtitle, Mayakovsky and his cameraman and co-director Yevgeni Slavinsky between them employ various silent screen camera tricks like double exposures, as well as combining naturalistic acting with authentic locations, depth of field and diagonal movement across the frame to give a timeless immediacy to a 99 year-old film very much rooted in its era.
