Dreams Of Centenarians DVD
This delightful glimpse of men and women 100 years old or more is charming and disarmingly funny. The timing and wit of the babushka-clad women seems almost professional as they discuss the lives and loves they experienced almost a century ago. Directors Sukelis and Verba strike some notes of somber reality as well, and the hardship of peasant life long ago emerges between the light-hearted moments. This film offers a rare look at figures from the Eastern Europe of a century ago, so distant from us today. Winner of the LSSR 1970 National Film Prize.
