Little Vera is a 1988 Russian film directed by Vasili Pichul. It was a controversial blockbuster in the Soviet Union that year and was successful in the United States. The film is emblematic of the perestroika period of Russian history, with pessimistic themes critical of the Soviet orthodoxy. The movie stars Natalya Negoda as the eponymous Vera, a sexy, disaffected teen who feels increasingly stifled by her small hometown. Her mother (Lyudmila Zajtseva) and alcoholic father (Aleksandr Negreba) don't like her friends or her Western-inspired lifestyle that includes miniskirts and rock 'n' roll. Vera meets the intellectual and rebellious Sergei (Andrei Sokolov) at an underground dance party, later broken up by Soviet police with guard dogs, and they quickly fall in love. A hasty marriage proposal follows but her parents don't approve. Complicating matters, Sergei is friends with Vera's doctor brother. Little Vera features explicit sex scenes, one of the first Soviet movies to do so.
