Today we want to offer a selection of the best Russian works, where special attention is paid to the theme of first love. They are really touching, a little sad, sometimes acutely social, and the feelings of the protagonists are pure and devoid of the now fashionable exploitation of sexual desires.

"You never dreamed of", 1981
Perhaps the writer Galina Shcherbakova in her novel "Roman and Yulka" wanted to draw an analogy with the story of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. However, the creators of the film "You Never Dreamed of" decided to make their characters a little different and changed the name and name of the main character. Katya (Tatiana Aksyuta) moves with her family to a new place of residence and there she gets to know a new class. Among her acquaintances is Roma (Nikita Mikhailovsky), and a bright feeling arises between the teenagers. Classmates joke, but adults are ambiguous in their judgments. Some teachers do not believe - Katya and Roma seem too young to them for such feelings. Katya's mother supports her daughter in every possible way, because she herself recently got married a second time.
But Roma's mother, on the contrary, opposes youthful love, because once upon a time Roma's father was in love with Katya's mother himself, which is why the girl is disgusting to her. In order to separate the young people, she persuades Roman's grandmother to pretend to be sick, and sends her son to take care of the allegedly sick person from Moscow to Leningrad. Will young lovers be able to survive the separation, or will the desire of adults to protect them "from all sorts of nonsense" be stronger? Let's just say that this picture was named the best film of 1981, and 26 million viewers watched it at the box office.
