The Village Teacher

Barnet, Boris
This chronicle of a Siberian village schoolteacher begins and ends with a dance. Varenka is herself young at the film's first ball in Tsarist St. Petersburg, poised to begin her adult life. In 1941 there is another dance, of her own students, as she watches, both moved by the present and haunted by the past, which by this time has included the political imprisonment of her lover, their wedding, and his death in 1914. "I'll teach you to dream, " said the film's heroine to the children starting their life.
