A station for two

Not long ago I watched a touching 1982 film directed by Eldar Ryazanov under the title: “Вокзал для двоих” – translated from Russian into Polish as “A railway station for two”. Starring the wonderful Russian actors Lyudmila Gurchenko and Oleg Basilashvili. A touching story about the love of two people – the waitress Vera from the station restaurant and the passenger Platon, who, for a rather mundane reason, is forced to stay in this restaurant and wait for the next train. And it all starts with the problem of a soup not paid for in the restaurant by Platon (Oleg Basilashvili), who, together with a group of passengers from his train, briefly comes to the restaurant to eat soup. However, he does not move the soup, he does not intend to pay for it and at that moment he is confronted by a whole group of employees of this restaurant, who do not let him go and thus, he cannot return to his train and continue. From this moment the whole plot of the film begins, the thread of the nascent love between Platon and Vera , intertwines with the thread of Vera’s lover Andrei (played by Nikita Mikhalkov). Meanwhile, Platon is robbed at the railway station by a local thief, loses all his money, and in order to pay for the dinner to which he has invited Vera, he plays the piano – the first song just for her, and later takes orders from the restaurant’s guests, and in this way gains money. In addition to the station restaurant and its surroundings, the film is also set in a Russian prison, where Platon has been sent to for causing an accident. He receives a pass from the prison warden to see his wife. And what happens next during this visit and the return to the prison back – this is something you have to see for yourself. The film is very interesting. Great roles by Lyudmila Gurchenko and Oleg Basilashvili.
