Three Plus Two, or 3 + 2 (Russian: Три плюс два) is a 1963 Soviet comedy film directed by Genrikh Oganisyan based on a play by Sergei Mikhalkov,[1] and produced by Maksim Gorki Studio.

Plot summary[edit]

The film is set in mid-1960s Crimea. Three male friends from Moscow -- a veterinarian (Roman), diplomat (Vadim) and physicist (Stepan) -- decide to go camping on the seashore. Once arriving at the coast of the Black Sea in their car, they select a deserted area to settle and set up their tents. Refusing all benefits of civilization, they enjoy bathing in the sea and preparing their own food from concentrates, until their privacy is invaded by two uninvited guests – a trainer and an actress (Zoya and Natasha) – who claim their rights to the young mens' campsite. Deciding to make camp life as intolerable as possible for the three men, Zoya and Natasha set up camp in an attempt to purge the three friends from the seashore. Ultimately, the war for territory ends with a complete reconciliation of the two sides.[2]

Filmmaking details[edit]

The film was shot in both widescreen and fullscreen. For this reason each scene was shot twice.

The primary shooting location of the film was a village named Novy Svet in the Crimean Region of the Ukrainian SSR. Additional scenes were filmed in Riga and in St. Petersburg.
