Hello to everybody! Last night we saw a couple of Soviet films, received a lot of fun. About one of them I want to tell a little bit in the video for 7 minutes. Probably, very few people from the English-speaking public are familiar with the films of the USSR.

Trust me - its very good movies!

It is a pity, that the English translation is not available now. May be I will find it somewhere later.

The film, which in the video is called "Unpaid leave" (Hung. Fizetés nélküli szabadság.) - Soviet two-part feature film, a lyrical comedy. A co-production film company "Mosfilm" and Peoples Republic of Hungary TV. The premiere took place on January 1, 1982 on the first program of USSR TV.

Created during the Soviet-Hungarian friendship, when Hungary massively supplied to the USSR brand "Ikarus" buses, which is reflected in the film's plot.


Katya, a kindergarten teacher from Verhneyarsk (North of Russia), arrives in Moscow to meet with a young man, named Yuri, whom she met during his trip. It does seem to be impossible for her to be with him, looking for him in the big city, receives from the Deputy Minister the unpaid leave (hence the film's title), postpones her tourist trip to Hungary (Yuri went there on a business trip), receives a gift (expensive instrument) from the French firm for him. However, her perseverance only annoys Yuri. When Kate wins a beauty contest in Budapest, Hungary, Yuri, seeing that he losing her. But it's too late - in love with Katya's already a friend and colleague of Yuri, the Hungarian Laszlo. In order to meet again with Kate and tell her of his love, Laszlo arrives in Verhneyarsk after. The finale of the film remains open.
