Chuk and Gek

USSR, 1954 (MIFF 1955, The Children's World)

Director: L. Lukinsky

Chuk and Gek is the story of two four-year-olds and their adventures in a deserted mountain hut high up in the Blue Mountains. The performances of the two strange, gnome-like little urchins are miraculously unaffected and the film has a genuine and fairy tale charm.
