The article has revealed the elements of the theatricality in the cinematography while examining «Mefisto» by I. Sabo and «Pokayanie» by T. Abuladze, the films made in the 80-s where the theatricality of the aesthetics is considerably conditioned by the specific features of the depicted totalitarian epoch. The causes of the actualization and the forms of the manifestation of the theatricality in the language of the totalitarian culture are also examined. All the more, an attempt is made to find out the most meaningful moments of the interaction between the languages of the theatre and the cinema and the peculiarities of the intermedial interpretation of the literary texts, paintings and pieces of music.
