Still from the movie ‘It’

An unexpected interpretation of a popular novel in Russia.

“It” is a very strange film. That’s it in a nutshell. In 1989, director Sergei Ovcharov decided to film an anti-Soviet satire, and by some miracle it was released on the screen. Surprisingly, the same year, Tommy Lee Wallace’s film of the same name about the terrifying Pennywise was released, but apart from the title, nothing connects the Soviet and Western films.

The film adaptation of the novel “The History of a City” by Mikhail Saltykov-Shchedrin tells the history of Russia, starting with the calling of the Varangians and ending with the 20th century, but does so in a very… specific way. The director tried to criticize the power of the “country of the Soviets” in bizarre artistic ways.

According to the plot, the bosses in a certain city are constantly changing, but for the locals this is neither cold nor hot, because life does not get better or worse.

Separately, it is worth mentioning the cast of the Soviet “It”, which included Svetlana Kryuchkova, Leonid Kuravlev, Rolan Bykov, Vera Glagoleva and even Oleg Tabakov. By the way, Oleg Pavlovich was “responsible” for the horror moments of the film.

Tabakov’s character, Dementy Varlamovich Brudasty “Organchik”, in one of the scenes literally loses his head, which falls on a newspaper, and, as in “Futurama”, communicates with his interlocutor while his body goes about its business. The spectacle is unforgettable!

Still from the movie ‘It’

One can’t help but think of the announcement of the film adaptation of ‘The Last Day of Summer’, which is also associated with Stephen King, but not at all because of its title. Viewers are treated to a horror experience reminiscent of the ‘real’ film ‘It’ by Andre Muschietti.
