Few people know, but Tarantino's new film is a remake of a 1934 Soviet film called "In the Snowdrifts."

BEWARE OF SPOILERS!

The authors of the scripts were Joseph Prut ("Thirteen") and Mikhail Romm, although the last gloss on the text was brought by Viktor Shklovsky. The film was directed by Boris Barnett ("The House on Trubnaya", "Outskirts").

Tarantino's "Disgusting Eight" is a remake of the 1934 Soviet film

1. Semyon Saenko (Mikhail Zharov)

A valiant employee of the Kharkov Cheka named Semyon Saenko, performed by Mikhail Zharov ("The Bear", "Peter the First", Aniskin), is taking the left-wing bomber Vera Kalyuzhnaya, performed by Ada Voitsik ("Forty-First", "House on Trubnaya") across the country to court in Kharkov.

2. Vera Kalyuzhnaya (Ada Voitsik)

On a snow-covered pass, their sledges, driven by an Old Believer coachman (Vladimir Uralsky: "Outskirts", "Battleship "Potemkin"", "Raised virgin land"), are stopped.

3. The Coachman (Vladimir Uralsky)

Sayenko remembers him from a long-standing conversation about Lenin's handwritten letter, in which the leader calls Goloshchekin his personal friend and praises him for his bravery.

The role of Goloshchekin was brilliantly performed by the Lenin Prize laureate Leonid Lyubashevsky ("Yakov Sverdlov", "Hostile Whirlwinds").

According to him, he repented, went over to the side of the Soviet government and now follows his destination, in the Rostov region, where he is promised the post of director of the collective farm. This is the first role of Peter Glebov ("Quiet Don", "Raised virgin land").

7. Mahomet (Vladimir Zeldin)

In his role, emigrant Alexander Vertinsky starred, who agreed to participate in the project for the sake of the promised return to his homeland (as a result, it took place only in the 1940s).

8. General Vrusilov (Alexander Vertinsky)

He turns out to be a German internationalist communist who moved to Soviet Russia for ideological reasons. By an unexpected coincidence, he also follows to Kharkiv, as he was appointed to the local prosecutor's office.

11. Due to bad weather, random neighbors will have to spend several days locked up, and tensions are growing.

12. The characters recall mutual grievances and past sins. So, Commissioner Moisha Goloshchekin reacts very aggressively to the repeated repetition of the word "Jew" and recalls how the whites massively hung Jews on lanterns.

13. In response, Cossack Shchus calls his Lenin letter fake and reminds everyone present of the commissar's bloody role in the uprising of the White Russians, when 27 revolutionary workers died because of his erroneous order.

I remember a musical episode in which an eserka, accidentally finding a guitar in the house to dilute the atmosphere, sings a song "From the Odessa Kichman".

14. However, in the finale, socialist justice wins, and, leaving behind several corpses of the enemies of the revolution, Sayenko takes Vera to the place of her upcoming trial.

In the 1990s, a remake of this tape (based on Viktor Shklovsky's notebooks) was planned by co-authors Lutsik and Samoryadov, but in the end they abandoned this project. However, their achievements formed the basis of the brilliant film "The Outskirts" in 1998.
