The Vanished Empire - Movie Showing and Reception

Thomas Pearson and Andrei Kuteinikov

Love and youthful idealism are both put to the test as the Soviet Union begins to crumble in this post-Soviet drama from director Karen Shakhnazarov, which nostalgically looks back on coming of age in a more stable and simple time. In the early 1970s, Sergei (Alexander Lyapin) is a Russian college student who proudly describes himself as a dissident, telling anyone who cares to listen that he wants to help bring democracy to the country. Sergei's confident, outspoken manner has made him quite popular with the women on campus, much to the chagrin of his close friend Stepan (Yegor Baranovsky), who shares his political views but not his social skills.
