Glasnost Film Festival Vol. 3: The Tailor and Early on Sunday. The
Tailor is a sobering look at the spiritual void and disillusionment of
the current generation of middle-aged adults. They entered life with
faith in their talent, in their destiny, and in love. But by the dawn
of the Brezhnev years, they were aged before their time, having lost
their preferred work and the opportunity for creative
self-realization. Directed by Vladislav Mirzoyan, 1988. 50 mins. Early
on Sunday is a simple, endearing film. On a Sunday morning in winter,
several old village women go to the forest to gather wood. They chop
down some sturdy pine trees, build a fire, banter about their life and
other things, and finally go home. Their unpretentious observations
evoke bursts of laughter, feelings of compassion, and an immense
respect for the dignity and patience of these women who are unaware of
their own worth. Directed by Murat Mamedov, 1987, 18 mins. Russian
with English subtitles.
