Movie Info

Russian filmmaker Boris Barnet's Schedroe Leto was released variously in the U.S. as Beautiful Summer and Bountiful Summer. The film was Barnet's first color effort, and a beautiful job it was indeed. Essentially a musical comedy with lightly propagandistic underpinnings, the film offers a rosy-hued look at life in a "typical" Ukrainian collective farm. The largely female cast seemingly can't go for an hour at a time without bursting into song. Somehow, the film finds time for a plot concerning the friendly rivalry between Oksana (M. Bebutova) and Vera (N. Arkhipova), who try to outdo each other in raising livestock and harvesting grain. A romantic subplot involves Vera with mild-mannered bookkeeper Peter (M. Kuznetsov). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
