The Girls is one of the most popular Soviet movies from the 1960s. This heartwarming movie is sometimes likened to Cinderella in the rural Urals.
After graduating from her orphanage school, Tosya comes to work in a small village in the Urals. The community’s economy is based on the local timber industry and soon Tosya finds herself surrounded by boisterous lumberjacks.
After an altercation in the village’s dance hall, Tosya proves herself as a fierce individual. Because of this two rival groups of young lumberjacks place a bet on who can win Tosya’s heart. Ily bets Filya, his rival, that he can win over Tosya within a week.
Of course, eventually Tosya finds out about the bet and ends up feeling embarrassed and humiliated. Despite this, a romance does eventually blossom between Tosya and Ilya – just like you can’t stop yourself from hoping for as you watch this fun movie.
