Little Vera (Vasily Pichul; 1988)
Ally is joined by Alissa Timoshkina, chef, KinoVino supper club founder, and author of Salt and Time: Recipes from a Russian Kitchen to discuss this somewhat notorious drama from the late 1980s glastnost period a few years before the Soviet Union collapsed. Expect SPOILERS from about 55 minutes in until the end. CONTENT WARNING: During the film it is revealed that one of the characters was from a present day standpoint in some jurisdictions the victim of statutory rape (Soviet law defined the age of consent as when an individual had reached puberty). There is also a fairly explicit sex scene. Little Vera stars Natalya Negoda, Andrey Sokolov, Yuri Nazarov, Lyudmila Zaytseva, and Alexandra Tabakova.
