The House on Trubnaya
The House on Trubnaya
A tenacious country girl arrives in Moscow with her pet goose in a bid to find her uncle and a new life.

Unsuccessful, she becomes employed as the maid of a barber and his harridan wife, in a bustling tenement building on Trubnaya Square. Her predicament livens up after a young man encourages her to join a workers' union.

Dazzling and often comic feats of montage and camera movement give whimsical and surreal direction to a serious tale about emerging class-consciousness.
