Episode 572: Welcome, or No Trespassing (1964)

Guest Co-Hosts: Gianna D'Emilio, Alistair Pitts

We continue our month of discussing Soviet Cinema with a look at Elem Klimov's Welcome, or No Trespassing (1964). It’s the story of a group of kids at a summer camp where one boy, Kostja Inockin (Viktor Kosykh), breaks from the pack and swims a little too far. He’s immediately expelled by Director Dynin (Evgeniy Evstigneev) but later Inockin returns.

Gianna D'Emilio and Alistair Pitts join Mike to discuss this fast-paced, whimsical bit of political allegory.

  1. Disclaimer: I don't like kids.
    I mean *really* don't like.
    But hot damn, this was a reallllly fun movie.
    With not ONE annoying kid!
    (and the 'what are you guys doing here? Huh?' kid was brilliant)
    Excellent pick, Mr White.
    Exceptional commentary by (the lovely voiced) Gianna.
