Although Western scholars have largely ignored Riazanovs oeuvre in favour of more serious filmmakers, no director in Russia has been so loved by both the public (openly) and politicians (covertly).

His early comedies mapped the relations between society and socialism, allowing him to create a radically apolitical art of kindness and kindred spirits. what - if any - relationship that popularity had to Soviet policy. Using the works of Deleuze, Lacan, and Kristeva, MacFadyen looks at how Riazanovs films relate to society, audience demand, and Soviet politics.

In more than 20 love stories that have precious little to do with statecraft, Soviet or otherwise, Riazanov captures the willful inclusiveness of socialist culture.
