ZOLUSHKA (Cinderella) (1947) * with switchable English subtitles*

В сказочном королевстве живут: Мачеха, её злые дочери, безвольный муж-лесник и его дочка от первого брака — Золушка. Мачеха эксплуатирует бедную девушку как домработницу. С помощью своей крёстной-феи Золушка попадает на королевский бал, где в неё влюбляется прекрасный и очень добрый принц. В полночь волшебство оканчивается и бедной Золушке приходится вернуться к прежней жизни. Но по хрустальной туфельке, которую Золушка потеряла, убегая из дворца под бой дворцовых курантов, принц отыскивает невесту.

The film starts with the words, "This is a very old fairy tale that was first told many centuries ago and still lives, and everybody tells it in a different way".   The creators of the film "Zolushka" ("Cinderella"), tell this old story with so much tenderness, humor, kindness, and style that it will be loved and watched by spectators for many generations, past and future, children and adults alike.   Its directing is effortless, the familiar plot never fails to captivate, the music by Antonio Spadavekkia is enchanting and absolutely fits the magic of the film.   The old story is retold by Yevgeni Shvarts (who also wrote the screenplays to the masterpieces of Russian Cinema "To Kill a Dragon" (1991), "Ordinary Wonder" (1978), "Twelve Chairs" (1977), and "Don Quixote" (1957)), and he added jokes that are still funny and biting after all these years.   The best Russian actors of the time participated in "Cinderella".   You will never forget the touchy, but kind King (Erast Garin), tender and loving Zolushka (Yanina Zhejmo, who was 38 when she took a role but she was absolutely believable as 16 year old Zolushka), and Faina Ranevskaya, as an evil, but unforgettable, Stepmother, who believes that with her powerful connections she will rule the Magic Kingdom.
