Movies@Gorey Presents: Stage Russia: Three Comrades
Thursday 13th April at 8.30pm
Performed by the Moscow Sovremennik Theatre under the direction of Galina Volchek and Alexander Savostianov, this play is based on the 1936 novel by German author Erich Maria Remarque.
Set in the interwar period in Germany, THREE COMRADES is the story of Robert Lohkamp, whose somewhat disillusioned outlook on life is due to his horrifying experiences in the trenches of the First World War. He shares these experiences with Otto Köster and Gottfried Lenz, his two comrades with whom he runs an auto-repair shop. When Robert meets a beautiful and mysterious young woman, Patrice Hollmann, his nihilistic outlook slowly begins to change.
Presented in Russian with English subtitles.
