The Cuckoo – Russian Film Series
Wednesday, November 3 in C214 Wells Hall
September 1944, in a land torn apart by war, a Finnish sniper is labeled a coward by his compatriots; as punishment, he is nailed to a rock and left to his own devices. Not long after, a disgraced Russian Captain, en route to his court martial, is injured in an accident. They are taken in by Anni, a young, resourceful war widow, who offers shelter to one while nursing the other back to health. None of them understands the other’s languages, but it doesn’t seem to matter. Isolated, the three unlikely roommates – a Finn, a Russian, and a Lapp – overcome both comic and tragic misunderstandings to form a passionate three-way relationship.
