And, of course, love, where do without her
I watched “People are like rivers” in the morning - an unpretentious short film of 1969, I forgot about it completely ... And why do such films only show in the night? (
You have no full-length massacre, shooting, mate and blood.
The simple story of the meeting of two elderly (by those standards) people, nothing new, but how much air and nature in the picture! I'm not about birches and autumn, I'm about the nature of acting.
Nina Urgant and Nikolai Rybnikov are starring - both in their plot and in their life they were not even forty years old.
Alas, Rybnikov was already in decline of his popularity: after “Devchat” he was filmed a little, mostly in supporting roles, and here the character turned out to be interesting, and he doesn’t look like his usual heroes.
And Nina, of course, an incredible actress. For some reason, she always reminded me of Valentin Serov - because of some special tragic break and gentle shyness of movements, because of the manner of speaking quietly, somehow inwardly.
Here is one of the last roles of Izolda Izvitskaya - beauties with an unhappy fate, very talented and very lonely. In two years, she will be found dead in the apartment ...
Add to this the marvelous music of Oscar Feltsman, a song performed by Maya Kristalinskaya on Rozhdestvensky’s verses and, of course, love, where to go without her is shy, like a candle flame, long-awaited and suffered.
Well and happy end! In those years, he still happened on the screen.
