Beloved Russian movie? Do you have one?


Hi everyone!
Really need your help ASAP 🙂

I'm a journalist from Moscow (Russia), RBC Style. We are making a new issue - it will be on Russian cinema. Well we wonder, what does the foreign audience think of Russian movies? Maybe some of you guys are so lucky to watch Tarkovsky movies. Or a brand new project "Major Grom" on Netflix? Who knows, maybe you met "Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears" in your life somewhere...

There can be various examples. If you would like to share your experience of meeting Russian cinema, please, do it) I really need you to remember some Russian movies and tell me about it in the comments below. I'll be so gratеful for your nostalgia and impressions.

All your brights I'll put together in a feature. And I promise to share it with you ;)

I haven't seen much Russian movies, but everybody loves The Hunt for Red October.

"Svadba" Faina Ranevskaya was brilliant.

I much prefer Soviet movies over present-day Russian movies. I mean, I've seen a few present-day Russian movies that I really liked (one was "Piter FM", a fun lighthearted movie from 2006), but I just think the overall quality of Soviet cinema was much better. I think my all-time favorite Russian/Soviet movie is "Siberiade" from 1979, a four-hour epic telling the story of a village in Siberia as it flows through the 20th century, from the tsarist era through the revolution, class struggle, World War II and industrial development. It's a wonderful movie but sadly seems very little known outside of the former USSR.

Come and See (1985) is both gut wrenching and beautiful at the same time. There are so many scenes that are etched into my head forever including Flyora growing old before our eyes. Amazing film 10/10.
