The Crocodile

Производитель: "Alma/Oneworld"

The civil servant Ivan Matveich and his wife Yelena Ivanovna are spectators of an exhibition in a shopping arcade of a crocodile owned by a German, when Ivan is suddenly swallowed alive by the animal. Unsuccessful in his attempts to be freed from his prison, due to the German s concern for his crocodile and excessive desire for compensation, the civil servant gradually comes to appreciate his new environment, while his wife begins to enjoy her new-found freedom. Inspired by Gogol s surreal tales, Dostoevsky s hilarious story has been interpreted by some as a vitriolic piece of social criticism and a veiled attack on the revolutionary philosopher Nikolai Chernyshevsky.
