Pokrovskiye vorota (Pokrov Gates) (The Pokrovsky Gate)
In a series of vignettes, Moscow of the 1950s comes back to life as Konstantin (Mikhail Kozakov, also the director) reminisces as he stands by the Pokrov Gate, thinking about the house he used to live in and his neighbors and friends (the young Konstantin is played by Oleg Menshikov). The post-Stalinist thaw has set in and Moscow had a special aura of relaxation and warmth, as this film illustrates. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
