Product Overview

Inside Soviet Film Satire: Laughter with a Lash is a lively collection of sixteen original essays by Soviet, American, and Canadian scholars and film commentators. It is the first in-depth examination of an important genre within the Soviet film tradition. From its origins, humor and satire have been closely linked in Soviet cinema. Nowhere in this tradition is there the pure comic genre typified in the West in films by Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton; by contrast, Soviet comedy can best be described as laughter with a lash. Films made during the early years of the communist regime depicted characters and situations at a moment when the promise of socialism had yet to be realized. By the final years of totalitarian rule, filmmakers had found ways to create satirical films that powerfully indicted communism itself. *Author: Horton, Andrew/ Rothman, William/ Andrew, Dudley *Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Film *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 188 *Publication Date: 2005/10/13 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.98 x 9.01 x 0.43 inches
