The House on Trubnaya Street

  • Showroom Cinema 15 Paternoster Row Sheffield, England, S1 2BX United Kingdom (map)

The second of two rarely-seen Soviet comedies in this year's festival, this is a visually ingenious and utterly charming comedy. The story hinges on a petit bourgeois hairdresser who tries to hire a non-union housemaid. The camerawork is remarkably agile, craning up and down the crowded tenement and roaming the streets of Moscow.

Performing live: Jonny Best (piano)
