The Barracks


Directed by Valeriy Ogorodnikov
Russia, Germany, 1999


A small but remarkably cosmopolitan village somewhere in the Urals, between war-ravaged Leningrad and the gulags of Siberia, is the setting of this whirlwind, tragicomic portrayal of Russian provincial life during the summer of 1953, just after Stalin’s death.
