Evenings on a farm near Dikanka / A Night Before Christmas / Vechera na khutore bliz Dikanki / Вечера на хуторе близ Диканьки (1961) DVD9 RUSCICO
Based on the story "Christmas Eve" by Russian writer Nikolai Gogol. The whimsical combination of Christmas phantasmagoria and an eccentric fairy tale makes this film an unforgettable spectacle. The action takes place both in a village of Dikanka in the Ukraine and at the palace of a Russian Empress. Blacksmith Vacula has enraged the devil himself: in a church he painted the devil's figure in such a way that even the Hell's inhabitants could not help laughing. Solokha, Vacula’s mother, is known to be a witch, not averse to flying on a besom. Vacula's sweetheart, Oksana, demands for a Christmas present a pair of tcherevichki (shoes) that the Empress wears. Only then she will agree to marry Vacula. And the devil promises to help the blacksmith get the Empress’s shoes, on condition that Vacula sells him his soul. Meanwhile, Christmas is almost here.
