White King, Red Queen (Russian: Белый король, красная королева, translit. Belyy korol, krasnaya koroleva; 1992) is a Russian film. The composer Isaak Schwarz won a Nika Award from the Russian Academy of Cinema Arts and Sciences for the film's music.


The film is set in the 1990s. A trade union delegation, led by former Institute of Marxism-Leninism employee Yekaterina, arrives in a small Swiss town. Staying in the same hotel is Grandmaster Alexey Goryunov, who had gone to the West 20 years ago and since then been hopelessly in love with Yekaterina. His feelings remain unchanged, and he asks her to stay.
