BIUROKRACJA I BIUROKRACI W RADZIECKIEJ KOMEDII FILMOWEJ
Languages of publication
The given article is devoted to the issue of bureaucratic distortions in film comedies, which were created in the Soviet Union during 1927-1988, and thus almost throughout the entire functioning of the historical empire. Starting from the silent movie Don Diego and Pelagia by Yakov Protazanov, through the early sound films of the Stalin era (Volga-Volga by Grigori Aleksandrov), followed by Khrushchev Thaw films (including Eldar Ryazanov’s The Carnival Night, A Groom from the other world by Leonid Gaidai) and comedies created in the 1960s and 1980s, the author tries to indicate the mechanisms of bureaucracy in the Soviet Union, its influence on the functioning of the state and citizen, and also presents methods of stigmatizing bureaucratism by Soviet filmmakers.
