How much I love Soviet films, many of my peers do not share such love, being mainly interested only in modern cinema and rarely in domestic, most often foreign films and TV series are a priority. But for me, Soviet cinema is not empty shells, not a pursuit of commercial success, but true masterpieces. Every film is a storehouse of wisdom! There must be morality, the picture teaches something, even the simplest and most vital, seemingly uncomplicated story - reminds of true values. And the atmosphere is so ... setting in a positive mood, making you believe that everything will be fine. By the way, sometimes I watch the Dom Kino channel, it is there that I get to see new films of those years, the Soviet period, with some I am already familiar, and some not. Surprisingly, it just so happened that I never really watched "Vacation at my own expense", I remember some episodes, once I saw, but so that the whole film is not. And now, when two hours spent in the company of Katya's heroine are over, I can say that this is a very bright, positive and easy-to-watch film that makes you feel like the main character and her life's ups and downs, makes you empathize, and also think about ... What? Yes, as always, about life! So, get to know Katerina, that's exactly what I want to call her - Katerina. I have a close friend - the heroine's namesake, and so only my mother calls her Katerina, I always wondered why, we are all Katya, Katyusha, Ekaterina. But I saw the heroine Olga Melikhova and realized that this is exactly "Katerina" for me. This is a naive girl, romantically inclined, who is one of those who are ready to rush after a loved one even to the ends of the world. But this is pure love without any impurities there. If you love, then circumstances will not interfere, if they interfere - not love. Everything is really simple, then people are trying to complicate things, they are trying to find an excuse for themselves, their indecision, various circumstances weave in, but they are not. When you love, you find an opportunity, you find the time, and, in the end, take a vacation at your own expense! And you will go for your loved one. Katerina doesn't need anything from Yuri except himself, it's a pity that men don't appreciate this. When no material wealth is needed, but only the person himself, no money, no regalia, no property. Laugh, tell me this does not happen? Trust me, it happens! If you love ... Katya goes for her lover. She may seem somewhat ingenuous and shameless, but she is not cynical, she is really open, naive, she believes in a bright, big and beautiful feeling. And take such a girl as your wife, you will be sure that you will not change, will not betray and will become a reliable rear. But ... as often happens in life, such devotion is not appreciated, not mutual. Yuri does not need a girl devoted to him, so passionately in love with him. Katya with her love only irritates. The girl is offended, but she has to accept her loved one for who he is. Here is another feature of the state of being in love, this real being in love - you are ready to accept a person with all his features, characteristic features, and you just wish him happiness, even if not with you. And here is a positive idea - there will be someone who will love you. Laszlo, he understands Katerina's feelings, he admires her, falls in love. It is not so easy to heal wounds of the heart and soul, but it is possible! You should not mistake the heroine for a windy girl, which did not work with one, she is ready to build relationships with another. This is not so, the eyes of Katerina in the final scene speak for themselves. She has a long way to go, it takes time to heal her wounds, but she already understood. That you can't build a relationship with Yuri, you can't be forcibly sweet, alas, and there's nothing you can do about it. No matter how good you are, if you are not loved, you will not make you reciprocate. Many at this stage are disappointed and close in themselves.But you believe that this will not happen to Katya, you want her to be happy, because she deserves it! So clean, open. Such a wave of nostalgia rose in my soul, what time it was, what films were shot, and what actors played in them! What a pity that Miklos Kalochai is no longer alive, Lyudmila Gurchenko is gone. The performer of the leading role - the role of Katya - Olga Melikhova stopped acting in films in the nineties, and this actress has only seven of them, her film career began in 1981, and ended in 1988, although there were still roles in the theater, she was considered promising, successful artist, but when changes began in the country, she changed her type of activity, started working as a manager, and then left the country altogether. True, this happened in 2009, but Olga Melikhova chose to live in Finland. Well, I will associate her with Katya-Katerina from "Vacation at my own expense"! With a provincial girl, but not at all stupid, as they might be considered. Although this is exactly what the metropolitan engineer, who thought that you can promise a girl from some other city a meeting and forget about this promise, will not hesitate to her, in fact, not only he, but also other people who will meet on her way. And let my friends tell me that those films are a fairy tale. Well, let the fairy tale! But we all need a fairy tale, it is simply necessary! It is worth believing that fate will present you with a surprise, someone's smile will melt the ice in your soul, someone will appear with whom you will later forget all the grievances and understand that everything was not in vain. And even if in the modern world pragmatism prevails over feelings, you still want to believe that the big and the bright exists, and for the sake of this feeling you will even take a "vacation at your own expense"!
I really liked this series due to the fact that it shows an unusual story of the main character. The girl Ekaterina from Verkhneyarsk is a self-confident girl who understands that she is already cramped in a small town, and therefore wants to move to a big city. Before she was going to leave her small town, a metropolitan guy named Yuri came to them in Verkhneyarsk, who had an affair with Catherine ... Only the romance did not last long and the guy went to his place in Moscow. The most exciting thing is that when the girl went to Moscow, she crossed paths with Yuri there. This guy is not very happy now that fate brought them together again. In addition, Catherine is determined to continue from her recent novel ... What I liked most here is that we see not a girl exhausted by the capital's difficulties, but a girl who is not afraid of difficulties and she succeeds. Let not with Yuri, but with his friend Laszlo, who, it turns out, noticed the girl right away ... It was nice to see when the girl had already begun to realize herself in life, and only then did Yuri begin to understand that he had the opportunity to be with a very beautiful and interesting girl. But life put everything in its place. The series is very well filmed, there are no exhausting situations in it, there is absolutely nothing here that would be impossible for further viewing of the series. It is interesting to watch the story of the heroine here. And in general, a very good atmosphere of that time is shown. By the way, it is not at all surprising that in those days Catherine, being a kindergarten worker, could easily go to Hungary ... The only question was on vacation at her own expense, which changed her fate. Previously, such a trip was a trifle ... This is not the first time I have watched this film and I am always incredibly happy for the main character. Those who have not watched this film should definitely watch it.
A classic storyline about how a very ambitious young girl decides to leave her native hinterland for a big city. Of course, the project, which was released in the distant eighty-first year, can hardly boast of an excellent appearance, technical study and impeccable shooting today.However, the series is still pleasant and interesting to watch. It has some kind of romance, it has a spirit of nostalgia or something. They especially tell us about the times when "Ikarus" only began to be released. These buses are large and very impressive. And with them here some important points of the plot will be associated. I would like to note that this project is still considered a film that was divided into two parts. And films, whose full footage is now divided, are usually called mini-series in modern times. Let's assume that this is a mini-series of Soviet and Hungarian production. He draws in with his plot, which is filled with romance, true friendship and beautiful love. Of course, characters play a critical role in plotting. To say that the actors played well is to say nothing. They did their fair share of the whole project. They were able to show the characters as they should have been in life. Olga Melikhova, who plays the main character Catherine, I liked. Her image of a rustic girl from the provinces is very pleasant. The male cast also did not disappoint. Igor Kostolevsky plays his role very well, whose character is the main object of Catherine's attention. Oh, this love story. She will really hook you and pull you headlong into the romantic canvas of this series. Hungarian actor Miklos Kalochai did not disappoint - he played his role very well. Then Lyudmila Gurchenka was young and very artistic. I think that Viktor Titov can definitely be proud of his work. His project really takes the soul and remains in memory for a long time. I hope that I am not the only one who will be such a fan of the Hungarian-Soviet film industry. Check it out - you won't regret it, because this series really turned out to be very interesting and exciting.
It's already a pleasure for me that I can watch Soviet films, which are filled with their own extraordinary atmosphere. Well, when in such a film there is also an excellent cast, the pleasure of watching can only double. And just an excellent illustration of such an example can serve as such a film as "Vacation at your own expense". The plot of this film will tell us about the life of a young girl who was unrequitedly in love with a young scientist. About how our main character is changing, transforming from a naive provincial girl into a real and strong lady who is able to soberly assess everything that happens. Who knows her own worth and is not ready to spray on those who do not value her, but is ready to give her love, warmth and care to those who really deserve it. A series like this is perfect for those who are interested in understanding other people's interpersonal relationships, looking at the psychological problems of people from the outside, analyzing, and drawing conclusions. This, in my opinion, is a very exciting project, which, among other things, does not let us get bored and completely immerse ourselves in the problems of the heroes. There is a lot of good humor in the picture, which can distract you from pressing problems while watching it, and give a lot of good impressions and emotions.
I watched the film "Vacation at my own expense" and was amazed at how good it was. I immediately wanted to recommend it for viewing. Probably, many have already watched it, but those who have not watched it should definitely watch it. After all, a good movie is worth watching. The fact is that the film was shot back in 1981, but I found out about it quite recently and by accident ... So it probably happens. I won't even compare it with modern films. I can only say that in recent years, contemporary Russian cinema has become much better, and when they say that there is absolutely nothing worth watching, I do not agree at all. There are a lot of young and talented actors. I think that many have simply become hostages of prejudice. Although our cinema, of course, has a lot to strive for. So, the film I watched tells the story of an ordinary provincial girl who, by virtue of her life in a small town, is a very simple person. Katya is a rather naive girl, she cannot be called a beauty either. She leaves her city and goes to Yura, to Moscow. The fact is that she met him when Yuri came to work in these places. Yuri left and now Katya decides to find him. She has traveled a long way and passed many difficulties, intersects with him on a tour of Hungary. To say that Yuri was not happy about this meeting, to say nothing ... He is tired of the girl. Yura wants nothing to do with her, the only thing he wants is to get rid of her. And this is where the fun begins. After a while, Katya simply blossoms and then Yuri begins to understand how he was wrong and what mistake he made, he realized that he needed her ... But it so happened that Katya had already fallen in love with Laszlo, Yuri's Hungarian friend. Laszlo is a good guy who immediately realized that Yura is not the right person for Katya. Laszlo just didn't want to talk about it, didn't think it was right. The film is insanely good, and the atmosphere of the eighties only makes it better. This is a great time when it was so easy to communicate, when traveling in Eastern Europe was a trifle. It was easy to meet a foreigner and it was completely normal. So, in fact, it happened in the story with Katya and Laszlo. How romantic it is ... the girl saw the guy, and she had a feeling, after which she wanted to find her lover. And after all, the efforts that she made were not unsuccessful. Katya was even able to reach the level of the ministry for her own goal, and at that time it was extremely difficult. Watching the story about the red-haired girl who decided to conquer the capital is a very pleasant experience. In the film, in addition to Katya, the heroine Ada Petrovna, who was superbly played by Lyudmila Gurchenko, was no less interesting. Ada approached the girl and her story with understanding. Yuri was played by Igor Kostalevsky. Yura, as you already understood, has never been deprived of female attention and therefore life has taught him a lesson. After all, he was usually not serious about girls. A worthy guy Laszlo was played by Miklos Kalochan. Unlike Yuri, Laszlo's character is a calm and moral person. Katya, by the way, was played by Olga Melikhova. I am pleased with the acting and this motion picture. It was a discovery for me. I highly recommend watching the show.
Quite good Soviet two-serial, which I personally came to even after such a time. The first episode was released on screens already in the eighty-second year. To be honest, I didn’t expect the project to be so interesting and sensual. Although in some places that old Soviet modesty and mentality can be traced, they say not a word about ardent love. However, romance still has a place. I would like to note that the characters turned out to be very cute and quite natural. I would like to note that the project was still very well timed to enter the mass production of Ikarus, so this bus will often appear here. As for the cast, everything is very good here, because the performers are really talented. Olga Melikhova plays flawlessly. I would like to note that Igor Kostolevsky also does not stand out, but as a leading actor, he even somehow stands out. Also worth noting is the impeccable Miklos Kalochai, a Hungarian, a very talented actor. It is impossible not to mention Lyudmila Gurchenko, who also took part in the filming of this film. Well, I think that such a project will suit the fans of comedy from the Soviet Union. We look together. Score - ten out of ten points!
