The House on Trubnaya Street (18)


From the archive

This film was last shown on 23 May 2017

When we think of early Soviet film it’s the political epics like Battleship Potemkin that come to mind first - but there’s a lighter, comedic side too. The House on Trubnaya has gorgeous camerawork and a marvellous central performance by Vera Maretskaya. The story is recognisably Soviet; the tale of a petit bourgeois hairdresser who tries to hire a non-union housemaid.
