Shostakovich: Cherry Town

Directed by Gerbert Rappaport
1963

Synopsis

To the four couples at the center of this screen adaptation of Dmitri Shostakovich’s comic operetta, the post-World War II housing block of Cheryomushki (Cherry Town) represents paradise — a much wished-for escape from their cramped flats of old.
