Nikola-of-All-Trades (18+)

USSR , 1990, colour, 20 min.
Director: Vladimir Yarmoshenko
What is known about Niлщдф? He lives in the village of Tavatui, Sverdlovsk region. Drunkard and a master of all trades – he can build the stove, cook and mash, and dig a grave, and put up a cross. The best mower – book him in advance. He works from dawn till dusk and always singing, but would not take an extra penny. Prefers to build stoves to old women – for a drink, for a pan of fried potatoes. It hurts for Nikola – a talented person drinking himself into oblivion… This film he watched. Apparently remained pleased. Did not drink for a week, repaired his accordion, came with it to the club and gave a concert after the end of the screening. Everyone clapped.
