Summary
The Girl with a Hatbox is a Soviet silent film of Boris Barnet starring Anna Sten, Vladimir Mikhailov and Vladimir Fogel. Natasha and her grandfather live in a cottage near Moscow, making hats for Madame Irene. Madame and her husband have told the housing committee that Natasha rents a room from them; this fiddle gives Madame's lazy husband a room for lounging. The local railroad clerk, Fogelev, loves Natasha but she takes a shine to Ilya, a clumsy student who sleeps in the train station. To help Ilya, Natasha marries him and takes him to Madame's to live in the room the house committee thinks is hers. Meanwhile, Madame's husband pays Natasha with a lottery ticket he thinks is a loser, and when it comes up big, just as Ilya and Natasha are falling in love, everything gets complicated. "Its whole atmosphere and every detail are imbued with the lightness of breathing, the youthful spontaneity that gives the film, among other things, an additional margin of durability and longevity. Not a satire, strong by virtue of its social and political topicality. Not an old good "comical" film - a cascade of time-tested tricks"¦ Not just a comedy of manners - an everyday-life comedy"¦ The first lyrical comedy". Mark Kushnirov
