by Nikolai Erdman

Everyone has a dream. Poor Simeon’s is to play the tuba – when that fails, he contemplates his own end. What should be a simple tragedy, becomes a total farce – and now everyone is out to profit from his misery.

A classic Russian comedy, banned by Stalin, very possibly for being too funny.
