Zhivyot takoy paren' (Russian: Живёт такой парень, or There Is Such a Lad) is a 1964 Soviet comedy film, directed by Vasily Shukshin. The movie is based on Vasily Shukshin's collection of short stories.


The movie tells the story of an Altai truck driver Pashka Kolokolnikov (played by Leonid Kuravlyov) - a kind, funny, and outgoing person, who loves life. He is a simpleton with a variety of gross provincial expressions and remarks, who likes to make fun of people and play practical jokes. But it turns out that he can also be a hero, when he prevents the explosion of a gasoline truck by risking his life.[1]
