Dvadtsat dney bez voyny 1976
After the banning of Trial on the Road, German turned his attention to another WWII story, this time based on the semi-autobiographical writing of acclaimed war poet Konstantin Simonov. The time is the winter of 1942 and the film’s title refers to the duration of a furlough taken by Soviet Army Major Lopatin (Yuri Nikulin, a celebrated comic actor and circus performer cast against type) to deliver the effects of a fallen comrade to the dead man’s wife in his own home town of Tashkent. While he is back on those familiar streets, Lopatin is briefly reunited with his own ex-wife (for whom he still harbors feelings) and begins a tentative courtship of a lonely seamstress working in the costume department on a feature film. He works with a film crew making a movie based on his published wartime memoirs. His experiences with the crew and in town soon convince him that the romantic views of combat held on the homefront are far different from the harsh realities of frontline warfare...
