“A WIFE GOT HER HUSBAND TO PARIS”
A wife got her husband to Paris,
She dried him for Journey some rusks,
Whispering words with a silence:
“Let the hell with you not for a once”
“While staging, I wonder how to perform the Author’s idea without exact illustration of his text.
To save the life of Kolka, the main hero, to raise a profile of a Man’s Destiny in this story, or even try to prevent him to open gas valve. But Shukshin is pitiless – the end of the story will be the same. Only thing we can do is to support the Soul of the hero. When the main trial is not a fear of death, it is a fear of aimless life.”
