Plot synopsis
Essentially propaganda on behalf of Soviet collectivism, The Country Bride also manages to succeed as entertainment. Ivan Diubeznov plays Alexei, a tractor driver who falls in love with buxom wheat farmer Marinka (Maria Ladyina). She likewise falls in love with him, but finds his chauvinistic attitudes towards female farm workers rather annoying. Only when Marinka and her wheat-stacking friends show themselves to be the equal of any man does Alexei eat humble pie and promise never to underestimate her again. Watching from the sidelines is elderly Naum (F. N. Kurikhin), the film's most lovable character.
