Little Vera
Маленькая Вера

Famous for being the first Soviet film to show frontal nudity, Little Vera, played by Nataliya Negoda, is a small-town girl trapped in a provincial port town.Trying to escape her dysfunctional family, her desperation leads her to lie to handsome student Sergei. Notorious for its sexuality and brutal dialogue, Little Vera characterises the preoccupations of perestroika and the decline of faith happening across the Soviet Union in the late 1980’s.
