    Ludmilla Gurtshenko is no more.

    while that will mean nothing or little to most newcomers it means a lot to 'old hands' (like me) and of course, nearly to every, Russian.
    Ludmilla was one if not THE most loved actress during the cccp time.
    The first time i saw her in the Film '(railway) station for two'. she plays a harried overworked and underpaid waitress who feels and falls for a poor traveler who was duped by a Caucasian melon seller, false gold teeth and all, on the station platform. played by the way VERY nice by our now famous Michalkov...
    I had to watch it 3 times before i understood the idea of the 'express buffet' when a train came in, but finally i got it.
    and there were lots of other films that are STILl highly enjoyable to watch, even after all these years.
    RIP Ludmilla, we all will miss you.
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    RIP!

    My favourite besides "The train station for two" were:

    1. "5 evenings", where Lyudmila Gruchenko was appriciated as a genius drama actress;
    2. "Love and Pegions", where her episodic part was perfect!
    not only s.t happens!
