Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears
Directed by Vladimir Menshov
Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears
Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film (edging out such
formidable competitors as Kurosawa's Kagemusha, Truffaut's The Last Metro
and Szabo's Confiedence), Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears is Vladimir
Menshov's enchanting drama of three women struggling to establish themselves
in Russia's huge and often impersonal capital city.
Liudmilla, Katerina and Antonina seem to have little in common, but are bound by a deep friendship and the shared dream that in Moscow they will somehow find happiness. Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears follows their resourceful pursuit of professional and domestic bliss in 1958, then skips forward twenty years to see just how many of their dreams have come true.
On one level Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears works as a free-spirited melodrama in the classical Hollywood tradition, yet at the same time it offers something more. Beneath its charming exterior, the film is a truthful, moving portrait of the plight of women in Russia, depicted over the span of two decades.
"Laughter, tears, romance, music...Who could ask for anything more?" - Bernard Drew, Gannett Newspapers
"Filmmaking at its best! A thoroughly pleasing romantic comedy." - Richard Schickel, Time
