My Friend Ivan Lapshin

Мой друг Иван Лапшин

Directed by Aleksei German
Soviet Union, 1985
Drama, Crime


Adapted from popular stories written by Guerman’s own father, My Friend Ivan Lapshin wryly chronicles the material deprivations and minor satisfactions of communal life during the time in which Stalin’s cult of personality became a routine part of everyday life…and gangsters still ran rampant.
