After so many Russian WWII melodramas flooding the American market, the lighthearted Soviet comedy Twins should have been a refreshing change of pace. The title characters are a brace of abandoned babies, adopted by working girl Luba (Ludmilla Tselikovskaya). The presence of two squalling infants sorely tests the patience of Luba's friends, neighbors and landlady. The plot thickens as various interested parties -- two of whom may be the twins' parents -- converge upon her tiny apartment. Ultimately, Twins transforms into a propaganda piece which postulates that every Soviet citizen is responsible for the welfare of the young and helpless.
