Stalin's Bride

Loading...
Acclaimed Hungarian filmmaker Péter Bacsó (THE WITNESS) directs a searing satire about the Stalinist era. Poor, pitiful Parana wanders into a tiny village in the remote regions of the Soviet Union during the summer of 1937--the darkest days of Stalinism. The farming collective has little sympathy for the unattractive girl dressed in sackcloth, and they torment and ridicule her. Taking refuge under a poster of Stalin, the villagers dub her "Stalin's bride." Parana's appearance in the village stirs up fear and anger, leading to unexpected consequences. International stage and screen actress Juli Básti stars in this allegory of intimidation and repression from director Bacsó, renowned for his pointed tales about the dark days of communism.
