The Wife (1927)

Directed by Mikhail Doronin; script by Alexander Dubrovsky; camera by Vasily Khvatov; movie poster by Leonid Voronov and M. Yevstafiev.

This is one of the many Soviet films with a message. The assistant director of a textile mill likes to preach the importance of leading a moral lifestyle to the workers at meetings. This does not prevent him from cheating on his wife, engaging in frivolous pastimes and neglecting his children. His jealous wife decides to avenge herself by flirting with his friend. Finally convinced of the moral depravity of both men, she leaves her husband, takes her children and finds work at a factory. The film no longer exists.
