Leonid Gaidai’s comedy “It Can't Be”: actors, roles, short story
Leonid Gaidai - master of light and witty comedies - shot a total of 18 motion pictures. Among them, a special place is occupied by the film "Can not be." Actors Mikhail Pugovkin, Oleg Dal and many other talented performers played leading roles in the popular film. What makes the film stand out from other Soviet paintings? And why is it necessary to see it at least once?
The director and ideological inspirer of the project was Leonid Gaidai - director of the films “The Diamond Hand” and “The Prisoner of the Caucasus”. The script was written in collaboration with Vladlen Bakhnov (Sportloto-82).
The basis of the film plot Leonid Gaidai put several satirical works of Mikhail Zoshchenko. Therefore, in the film “It Cannot Be”, the actors played on the screens three independent comedic stories.
The work of Leonid Gaidai is interesting not only by its form, but also by sparking sharp humor.The picture "Can not be" can be called an eccentric comedy, because its main characters get into such ridiculous stories that it is even hard to believe. The spectator after the end of each kinonevella wants to exclaim: "This can not be!".
The unification of several kinonells in one film is a favorite trick of Gaidai. In the same way, he built a screen action in the movie “Operation Y”.
The director preferred to work with the same creative team, so the entire cast of Gaidai’s past projects moved to the film “Can't Be”. Music for the picture was written by the popular composer Alexander Zatsepin.
