August 27 marks the 121st birthday of Faina Georgievna Ranevskaya!

ranevskayaLegendary Faina Ranevskaya went down in history as the most eccentric actress of Russian cinema of the Soviet epoch.  If you ask in any street of any Russian town who Ranevskaya was, in 99 per cent of cases you’ll hear, “She was a legendary actress, of course!”, and only a tiny 1 per cent will remember that’s also the name of a Chekhov character from the play "The Cherry Orchard".  Her talent, charm, wit, sharp tongue and – for the time – unbelievable straightforwardness earned her the absolute love and adoration of the public. She was also famous for her aphorisms. 

August 27th Theme - A Philosopher with a Cigarette. Presenter is Lyuba Ruseva.  Lyuba will remind us who Ranevskaya was.  A creator of whole gallery of inimitable farcical characters, a philosopher with a cigarette, a scandalous persona, a caustic lady, and a sensitive person – all this was Faina Ranevskaya.  The movie "Podkidysh" will be screened as a part of the presentation.


Her aphorisms remain popular till date.  
- I love children, especially weeping ones: they are usually taken away immediately.
- If you want to lose weight - eat half bucket less!
- Everybody complain about their appearance and nobody about their brains.
- Life's too short to be spoiled with diets, greedy men and bad mood.
- How do you think, is modern medicine making progress?
  - Yes, certainly is. When I was young, I had to take off my clothes for examination every time, and now it's enough to show my tongue.
- Believe it or not, but the only man who has ever kissed me is my fiance.
  - So are you bragging or complaining about it, dear?
