Once, Twenty Years Later
Former classmates meet before the camera of a television program. Slava is an architect, Anya a scholar, Marina an actress, Tolya a Navy officer… Only their class head, Nadya Kruglova, has not achieved any position – she is simply the mother of ten redhaired kids… Natalya Gundareva was one of the most famous Soviet screen stars of the 1970s-1980s. An actress of polyphonic gift, she portrayed, more often than not, women who were not very fortunate in love. The entire country sympathized with the ill luck of her Nadka (“Hello and Goodbye”) and citizen Nikanorova, the hard-earned happiness of Vera (“Dormitory Provided for Singles”) and Nina (“Autumn Marathon”), the wretched life of the “Sweet Woman”… In this lyrical family epic, Gundareva’s heroine is for once truly and unconditionally happy. And it so much becomes her!
Starring Natalya Gundareva, Viktor Proskurin, Oleg Yefremov
