The Steamroller and the Violin 1960 Russia 50 min subtitles Ages 10 and up
The focus is on a few hours that Sasha, a 7-year-old violin student, spends in the company of a steamroller driver named Sergei. Sasha, though spunky, is a privileged child who is picked on by the rougher kids in his apartment house. Sergei, who comes to his defense and lets him operate the steamroller, seems a sort of hero, a stand-in perhaps for the father who never appears. The world seems fresh and immensely inviting and there are lots of lovely techniques in this dreamy film.
