One of two wonderful Soviet comedies at this year's festival, Anna Sten plays a mischievous milliner who enters into a marriage of convenience with a homeless college student so that he can use her Moscow apartment. Soviet cinema of the 20s may be best known for its massive political epics like Battleship Potemkin, but the popular movie entertainment of the era is worth discovering as well.
