Andrew Smith, said that although he was aware that the man shot had been arrested in the past, he was unaware why he had been detained and did not know if the department had any knowledge that he suffered from a mental illness

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lieutenant Kijé[1] (Russian: Поручик Киже, Poruchik Kizhe) is the score composed by Sergei Prokofiev for the 1934 Soviet film Lieutenant Kijé directed by Aleksandr Faintsimmer based on the novel of the same title by Yury Tynyanov.


The suite, in five movements broadly follows the plot of the movie:[2]

  1. Kijé’s Birth. A clerk, while writing out the morning orders for his Imperial majesty Tsar Paul, miscopies two words, creating a Lieutenant “Kijé”. The Tsar learns of his “existence”, and issues numerous orders concerning him. The palace administrators have no choice but to carry them out.
  2. Romance. The fictional lieutenant falls in love.
  3. Kijé’s Wedding. Since the Tsar prefers his heroic soldiers to be married, the administrators concoct a fake wedding.
  4. Troika.
  5. Kijé’s Burial. The administrators finally rid themselves of the non-existent lieutenant by saying he has died.
