Editorial Reviews

The Cigarette Girl of Mosselprom is a charming, silent romantic comedy that tells the tale of a young man who falls in love with the title character (Yulia Solnsteva). She becomes a famous film star, and herself falls in love--not with the hero, but with her cameraman. No one ever gets what he or she truly wants, though they continue to pursue their lost dreams to the bitter end. Reveling in the unexpected throughout, The Cigarette Girl of Mosselprom is capped by an adroit surprise ending. FIRST TIME EVER ON DVD FROM KINO.

Format: DVD
From filmmaker Yuri Zhelyabuzhsky, the filmmaker/cinematographer known for his short "The Emperor's New Clothes" and filmmaker/producer Fyodor Otstep comes a silent comedy from Russia showcasing the complexities of love titled "The Cigarette Girl of Mosselprom" (Papirosnitsa ot Mosselproma).

The film which had aged quite a bit (and many have watched it in its darken, bad quality version), fortunately in 2007, the Cinematheque de Toulouse (in cooperation with the L'Immagine Ritrovata and the Foundation Groupama Gan pur le Cinema) did a restoration of the film featuring a master from its original 35mm elements.

And now, that restoration is available on DVD courtesy of Kino Lorber's Kino Classics line.

VIDEO & AUDIO:

"The Cigarette Girl of Mosselprom" is presented in 1:33:1 full frame, black and white. As mentioned, this film is the restored version done back in 2007 by the Cinematheque de Toulouse (in cooperation with the L'Immagine Ritrovata and the Foundation Groupama Gan pur le Cinema).

While the picture quality is not pristine as it does have print damage in the forms of scratches. But for a complete silent film that is 87-years old and also 112 minutes long, compared to many silent films that I have watched, the fact that it is complete and does not feature any major tears or nitrate decomposition or any degradation (save for one small few second scene at the end of the film), "The Cigarette Girl of Mosselprom" looks very good!

In fact, if you go on to YouTube, you will see how many people have watched the film in the past with its darkness and problematic picture quality. With this 2007 restoration, you see none of that. The film looks very good!

Audio quality is presented in Russian 2.

The movie is classic of the Soviet cinema. Excellent acting, plot. It is also funny. I would recommend it to any lover of silent movies.
