Orlov in Breaking Stalin's Nose

By Eugene Yelchin


The only time we see Orlov is when he sings and plays the accordion so loudly that Sasha and his father can hear it through their wall on the night Sasha's dad gives him the Pioneer scarf. When Sasha's dad knocks on the wall and tells him to stop, Orlov does so right away (because that's the level of stark terror... er... healthy respect... that Sasha's dad commands).
