Sovetskie komedii "nashego vremeni" : Remeiki v rossiiskom kinematografe XXI veka
MetadataShow full item record
This article examines a number of remakes of classic Soviet comedies of the 1970s produced in the 2000–2010 period, and the audience reactions to these films. Brezhnev-era comedies, such as The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath!, Office Romance, and Gentlemen of Fortune are revealed not only as constituent parts of a collective past, but as cultural objects that continue to function as a source of cultural identity in the post-Soviet period, despite the political, social and cultural changes that have taken place since 1991. The contemporary remakes of these films, which might be de-fined as hybrid forms – simultaneously “domestic” (i.e. produced within the same culture as the originals) and “cross-cultural” (adapted from a foreign culture) – have provoked extreme reactions in spectators who are not prepared for such a radical transformation of their collective memory.
