Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This romantic drama set after the War of 1812 is taken from the classic story by Alexander Pushkin. Vladimir (Oleg Vidov) is a young officer who settles in a small town. He falls for Maria (Valentina Titova), the pretty daughter of a widow (Maria Pastukhova) from whom he rents a room. Neither are able to commit to each other until he is called away for active duty during the cold winter. The music was provided by the gifted composer Georgy Sviridov and received heavy airplay on the radio and in concerts.
