A uncommonly modest effort from Russian "epic" director Vladimir Petrov, the 40-minute Jubilee is adapted from a play by Anton Chekhov. The story concerns a pompous bank director named Shipuchin (Victor Stanitsin), who makes elaborate preparations to celebrate the 15th anniversary of his firm. His plans are ruined thanks to the ill-timed gossip spread by his gabby wife Tatiana (Olga Androvskaya).
