An important example of socialist realism in Soviet cinema, Chapaev charts the ideological development and refinement of Chapaev (Boris Babochkin), a charismatic leader of a Red Army division. Under the guidance of his accompanying Party commissar, Dmitri Furmanov (Boris Blinov), the impetuous and proud Chapaev learns important lessons in the dialectic of spontaneity and consciousness. Released on the seventeenth anniversary of the October revolution and directed by Georgii and Sergei Vasil’ev (often referred to as the Vasil’ev Brothers, even though they weren’t fraternally related), Chapaev was the most popular Soviet film of its time and a huge hit internationally. Not to be missed!
