Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
"Factory subjects" was a Soviet film genre. Sobstvennoye Mneniye is a typical movie in that genre. In it, a man and a woman who are production experts come to an electronics factory to help make it more efficient. The factory's own party official recognizes that there are inefficiencies but feels that it is more humane to leave things as they are. He is overruled by one of the visiting experts. In the meanwhile, the female expert realizes that her love for her male co-worker is in vain, for he has fallen in love with a girl in the electronics factory. After some conflict, these issues are resolved in a way that satisfies the majority of those concerned.
