Avraham Bahar leaves debt-ridden and depressed Albania to seek a better life in, ironically, Stalinist Russia. A professional barber, he curries favor with the Communist regime, ultimately being invited to become Stalin’s personal barber at the Kremlin, where he is entitled to live in a government house with other Soviet dignitaries. In the intrigue that follows, Avraham, now known as Razan, is not only barber to Stalin but also to the many Stalin look-alikes that the paranoid dictator circulates to thwart possible assassination attempts - including one from Razan himself.
What did you love best about Stalin's Barber?
The overall plot interested me as a fan of history and historical fiction.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Stalin's Barber?
I can't pick one.
What about Fleet Cooper’s performance did you like?
He's excellent with accents.
If you could take any character from Stalin's Barber out to dinner, who would it be and why?
The barber himself. He'd give me a nice haircut and shave, and we could talk politics.
Any additional comments?
