In his 1983 movie Epilogue (Poslesloviye), Marlen Khutsiyev presents Moscow as a modern city. Big jets leave for worldwide destinations. Wide streets teem with the newest cars. The proudly filmed tower blocks designed ...展开in Stalin’s era join newly constructed skyscrapers. An intellectual's apartment is presented as spacious and equipped with elegant furniture and the newest technology. (This petit-bourgeois luxury makes the people lonesome, adds Khutsiyev, but that's another story).
