In the courtyard of the 1950s, Moscow. Stalin, Beria, Khrushchev and other fun shooting people. And then suddenly (or not suddenly) to Stalin after reading the letter from pianist Maria Yudina is getting bad. He rattled himself, but the guards that stood beneath his office, not nastelivaetsya to go inside. Thus, the body of the Secretary General in unsightly posture is already bringing Breakfast woman. Of course, it then shot. But that’s not it.
It means that Stalin is still alive, but on the verge of death. His closest associates, the scent of power, begin to weave intrigues. They are in no hurry to call for medical help, explaining that all good specialists are repressed, so to speak, and to call bad do not want (what if Stalin survives and learns about it).

“Maybe we should create a special Commission on this question?” – thought they. With grief in half, half-dead-half-dead doctors still find. Those, not without horror in her eyes, declare that the father of the peoples already there. Here EMU scalp, sawing open the skull to remove the brains for research, and then rushes at the door alcoholic Basil, that the son of Stalin. Understandably, hysterical tears, uproar. Screaming with anguish: “kill Everyone!”. Went scuffle. And here just one remark. Basil in this film, in my subjective opinion, it is a holistic image of Russia – it, so to speak, the soul. He is sincere in his stupidity, narrow-mindedness, naivety, and most importantly, pain. Abandoned, betrayed, defenseless, and therefore aggressive, drunk and out of mind.

Word for word, an argument with raised voices, verbal altercation, of course, a secret meeting. And here is the main funeral is scheduled Khrushchev.

He reluctantly, but all the same got down to business: Ruski for coffin chose the train to Moscow was canceled, Svetlanochka, Stalin’s daughter, embraced, tears in the audience were allowed wreaths ordered, launched priests, doctors, understandably, was shot and taken away in unknown direction. Well, it seems to be fine. But not quite. Body “locomotive of revolution” is still warm and Malenkov already photographed with a girl for a portrait in the style of the leader. At the same time, Beria turns around in front of her and Molotov to gather near him as much as possible allies. In short – starts a tough struggle for power.

Comedy “Death of Stalin” – it already sounds intimidating. Agree, very difficult to combine in mind such phrases as: “Comedy and death”, “the Comedy and repression”, “Comedy and terror.” It’s like a cake with a sausage. According to the idea, it’s all edible, but together – very bold combination. For example, when Beria decided to get rid of, it was all funny. He without pants, it dragged, waving the gun. Turmoil. Shot. The whole room laughs, and the screen already show you how to burn his corpse. So, if not psychologically delves into what is happening, did not seem scary, but once you realize what are you laughing at, becomes somehow not on itself. Similar feelings arise when viewing the film “Suburbicon”, review of which appeared earlier.
