Set in Stalin's Kremlin at the end of the second world war, this farce made me laugh out loud all the way through, while simultaneously reeling at the barbarism and cynicism of powerful rulers. If you think that war is noble, and that civilian deaths are insignificant, then this story will make no sense. I think that's the point.
