  • Love in the USSR depicts the heyday of the Soviet State at the peak of its power, which also marks the starting point of its collapse. A redacted and re-titled version of Shakhnazarov’s own production Vanished Empire (2008), the film has had several scenes deleted, remaining ones rearranged, and a totally new music score added.

    Set in 1970s Moscow, Karen Shakhnazarov's personal film is a delicate study of this imminent and irrevocably passing era.
