Certificate U

Shot by famed Russian musical director Pyrev, this is a Soviet answer to the American musicals of the 1930s and 40s. Glorifying life on the Steppe, the film uses a Romeo and Juliet-style love rivalry between chairmen of two collective farms to throw obstacles in the way of heroine Dasha and her dashing horse breeder, Nikolai.
