The Overcoat / Shinel (1959) Aleksey Batalov, Rolan Bykov, Yuriy Tolubeev, Aleksandra Yozhkina, Drama

The Overcoat is a 1959 Soviet film directed by Aleksey Batalov, based on Nikolai Gogol story “The Overcoat”.
The story centers on the life and death of Akaky Akakievich Bashmachkin, an impoverished government clerk and copyist in the Russian capital of St. Petersburg. Akaky is dedicated to his job as a titular councillor, taking special relish in the hand-copying of documents, though little recognized in his department for his hard work.

Instead, the younger clerks tease him and attempt to distract him whenever they can. His threadbare overcoat is often the butt of their jokes. Akaky decides it is necessary to have the coat repaired, so he takes it to his tailor, Petrovich, who declares the coat irreparable, telling Akaky he must buy a new overcoat.
