Soviet Union | 1956 | dir. Eldar Ryazanov, with Igor Ilyinsky, Lyudmila Gurchenko, Yuri Belov

A brilliant parody of Soviet top-down bureaucracy, Carnival Night satirises the appointment of a new director of a House of Culture, who threatens the New Year’s party plans of his co-workers. Featuring stellar performances from Lyudmila Gurchenko and Igor Ilyinsky, Eldar Ryzanov’s first feature film is a staple in seasonal Russian cinema.
