AND QUIET FLOWS THE DON (1930) * with switchable English subtitles *

Andrei Abrikosov Grigori Melekhov Emma Tsesarskaya Aksinya Astakhova Raisa Puzhnaya Natalya Koshonova Leonid Yurenyov Gendarm Nikolai Podgorny Panteleimon Prokofyevich Melekhov Georgi Kovrov Stepan Astakhov Yelena Maksimova Daria Melekhova

Aksinya, married to a brute of a husband, seeks refuge in the arms of Gregoryi. Troubles arise when the husband is apprised of her infidelity; but even more disconcerting is Gregoryi's initial unwillingness to run away with her ('What, and lose my land?') Further complications ensue when Gregoryi is forced to marry Natalya, who loves him despite her knowledge of his love for Aksinya. World War One comes and Gregoryi is dispatched to the front, where he gets a political education in the lack of justice for the landless peasants who fight and die to protect the farms of rich landowners. 

DVD-R is silent with Russian intertitles and switchable English subtitles. Approx. 91 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
