''Сюжет представляет собой последовательность киноиллюстраций к отдельным моментам жизни Александра Пушкина.
The life and death of Alexander Pushkin is summarised in a 5-minute sequence of half-a-dozen scenes that don't make much sense - especially when the film's subtitles are in Russian. We see Pushkin playing in the snow with his mates - presumably in some sort of military academy, although I may well be wrong as I know absolutely nothing about Pushkin. Then we see him perhaps receiving his commission, before we see him getting all moody at a ball. Presumably this is because some cad has been dallying with his girl, because we next see him mortally wounded in a duel and carried off to his death bed.''[forgottenmovie]
