Little Vera – a film you could call the Soviet Union’s Saturday Night Fever. No, not because of amazing dance scenes. Rather, it’s because of the bleak life prospects and genuine, if not troubled romance of the main characters.
This is a movie that defines the mental prison many lived in during the late 1980s of the USSR.
As a sign of the film’s continued relevance to contemporary viewers, it recently featured in Red Scare Podcast’s “Daddy Issues Double Feature” movie night episode on July 10th, 2020.
