Plot synopsis
Musical comedy.
The new heroine of film, Monroe (she is also Liubov Orlova and the post-girl Strelka), or, to be exact, her (speaking and singing) HEAD, has immersed herself into the filmís plot, its black-and-white proletarian values, its pseudoclassical cartoon style. Around this head, which is like a picture hung on a wall, spin meanings and contexts; the old logic breaks up and makes way for a new, jocular perspective that projects Putinís Russia. The white colonnades of the locks of the Moscow-Volga Canal, the steamship ìJoseph Stalinî, and even Leninís statue, become skeptical scenery, while the proud Soviet people who desperately travel to the distant and longed-for capital, to the all-union competition of amateur performances, resemble more and more the crowds of revolutionaries and ragamuffins, who may not even have an aim. But there is a song. And the words cannot be disentangled from the song.
World Premiere: Rotterdam IFF (programme "Cine Fantom Day"), 2006.
