Wedding in Malinovka (Russian: Свадьба в Малиновке, Svadba v Malinovke) is a 1967 Soviet musical comedy film directed by Andrei Tutyshkin based on an operetta by Boris Aleksandrov adapted by Leonid Yukhvid.[1][2]

The film is about an Ukrainian village during the time of the Russian Civil War.[3] With power alternating almost daily between Soviet and Ukrainian nationalist forces, the villagers of Malinovka are never sure who is in charge, so they modify their behaviour and dress accordingly.[3]


Dance scenes were cast with the participation of the Moldovan dance troupe Joc.
