The author of this unique art project, Nikita Mikhalkov, presents to the viewers the works of his favorite 19th-century painters. We shall see a whole panorama of artistic trends and tastes of the period, learn about amazing life stories of the painters and their subjects, the history of creation of the masterpieces of Russian painting, and get a broad picture of Russian culture, particularly the culture of painting. Thanks to a deeply personal, involved presentation of the material, a lively, ingenuous intonation, the paintings of the talented Russian artists will come so close to us that we’ll be able to hear “the music of Russian painting” and understand what perhaps was hidden due to our, sometimes superficial, momentary perception. And, as a result, get a gratifying sense of association with the unique heritage of our great country and the proud feeling of being part of its great people and history.

This engaging comedy of manners from celebrated Soviet director Boris Barnet finds a young peasant woman (Vera Maretskaya) traveling to Moscow to start a new life. She takes a job as a servant for a oily barber and his wife who live in a crowded tenement. Satirical jabs are taken at bourgeois society and urban problems like labor-union parades, housing shortages, and the crowded conditions of the city. The House On Trubnaya Square was one of the most important Soviet films of the 1920s but was not viewed by western audiences until 60 years after it was released.

Three notebooks supposedly containing Russian military secrets are handed to a British publisher during a Russian book conference. The British secret service are naturally keen to learn if these notebooks are the genuine article. To this end, they enlist the help of the scruffy British publisher Barley Blair, who has plenty of experience with Russia and Russians. Barley, an unconventional character who doesn't respond well to authority, finds himself in a game more complex than he first thought when he digs into the origin of the notebooks.

Genre: Drama, War

Many critics pointed out resemblances between Dom, V Kotorom Ya Zhivu (The House I Live In) and the better-known Soviet film The Cranes are Flying. Set in the years prior to and during WWII, the story centers on the various residents of a co-op house. Though the directors never show the war itself, its tragic impact is felt throughout the film. And despite the potential for Soviet propaganda, what sticks in the mind is the universality of the experiences endured by the leading characters. Dom, V Kotorom Ya Zhivu was one of Russian's entries in the 1958 Brussels Film Festival.
