A Cruel Romance[ Жестокий романс ] A Cruel Romance with English subtitles in English (dubbing) in English (dubbing) and with English subtitles is a 1984 Russian drama film directed by Eldar Ryazanov. It is the second and best known screen version of Alexander Ostrovsky's classic play Without a Dowry.
Noble but poor widow seeks to arrange marriage for her three daughters. She maintains "open house" or provincial form of salon hoping to attract gentlemen well-off enough to marry for love to a dowry-less.
A Cruel Romance was something of a revelation for me. Just as the American Dream is expressed repeatedly in Hollywood movies, I had a strong feeling after watching this movie that the Russian Dream had been laid bare for my comprehension at last. The worship of impossible romance combined with blindness to all practical considerations and the expression of that romance in the gift of expensive baubles and other grand gestures are the main threads running through this story.
