There Is Such a Lad
Живёт такой парень

Vasily Shukshin’s delightful tale follows truck driver, Pashka, from the Altai region, and his adventures on the road. Played by the phenomenal Leonid Kuravlyov, Pashka may be a little rough around the edges but he is a joker with a zeal for life. As is typical of Shukshin’s films, the director returns a dignity and heroism to the often overlooked rural communities outside Moscow and shows that appearances are only skin deep.
