It's 1984, not 1983.
Update: gave it an additional half star, the movie is near masterpiece.

More cruel than a romance, but who wouldn't fall in love with this Nikita Mihalkov?

"Ya slovno babochka k ognyu... stremilas tak neodolimo...
v lyubov, v volshebnuyu stranu...
gde nazovut menya lyubimoi..."

Great, timeless classic, keenly observed, beautifully shot and acted, and oh, the songs! *Sigh* ...

Superb acting by premiere Russian theater and movie stars, heartfelt tender Russian romance music by Andrey Petrov...Melodramatic plot of an old Ostrovsky's play is masterfully updated by the director Eldar Ryazanov. The Gold of Russian/ Soviet cinema.

I don't usually praise soviet movies, but this is one of those favorites too! Mysterious, Romance, and shocking all wrapped into one!

"ja ponjala, ljubov -- strana, gde kazhdyj chelovek - pritvorschik...."

Not exactly my favorite but the most beautiful movie by Eldar Ryazanov.
It's based on a novel by Ostrovsky, it's a story about a girl from very noble but poor family.
