Russian writer/director Abram Room never again made anything as good–or as highly individual–as his 1927 silent film Bed and Sofa. In this one-of-a-kind satire of the Moscow housing shortage, a married construction worker invites an old pal to stay with him. The friend not only accepts the worker’s hospitality, but the favors of his wife as well. Impregnated, the wife tires of being a pawn for two rampaging male libidos and leaves both men, seeking a new life of her own. Bed and Sofa is also known as The Third Meschanskaya.
