The One With a Song... (6+)

USSR , 1988, colour, 25 min.
Director: Vladislav Tarik
The film is devoted to one person, but it seems to be a brilliant lampoon on the mediocrity of our mass culture. It is a serious film – no hint on either a gag or comic detail is dropped. However, it makes you laugh till you cry... and frightens you.
