The Bear


Directed by Isidor Annensky
Soviet Union, 1938
Comedy, Short


Elena is a headstrong widow who refuses to honor a promise made by her husband to neighboring landowner Smirnov. It is Smirnov’s loud, boorish attitude that offends Elena the most; for his part, he can’t abide her fierce independence and unwillingness to bow to his “superiority”.
