anywhere do not share and, it is necessary to hope, picturesque characters of type similar to Fantomasa sinefila, successfully trying (with a cry " will not get to; I the Kuban Cossack! “) To give to drink vusmert participants festa cognac. But when at an evening concert “ the Humming-bird “ you see among dancing young growth Kiru Muratovu which have nestled on a scene and stuck greedy professional sight in soloist Elena Judanovu, you understand that the festival should justify trust which has rendered it the classic of world cinema, having given for a prepremiere the latest film “ Chekhovian motives “.
