Supposedly guarding a crashed plane near a sleepy Russian village during WW2, a happy-go-lucky soldier falls in love with the female postal clerk and romps about on her farm. An award-winner at the 1994 Venice Film Festival, Menzel's comic satire on Soviet bureaucracy has a warm and gentle tone, but hints at darker depths.
