Where can I get a copy of this film?


I have read the book which was great and i have also watched the film in Russian without subtitles and enjoyed it very much even though i dont speak more than a few words of Russian, I understood what was going on because i have read the book. What i would like to know is if it is possible to get this film on DVD region free pal or region 2 pal with English subtitles or on VHS pal with English subtitles and where from? If anyone can answer my question i would be most grateful.

I also am a recent bulgakov appreciater. No-one seems to have posted here yet. Come on ye bastards, hand over the details or comrade alc-rpt gets it!

well if you really are [a recent bulgakov appreciator] i would recommend you to see "Beg" ("the Flight" http://imdb.com/title/tt0065457/), i guess you'll enjoy it...

Wow, I'm so surprised that this film is known and popular (?) among non-Russian speaking people! I am Russian and this film is like an icon for me, there's so much of everything there.
And I can't imagine how Bulgakov can be translated. I'm afraid it's impossible. The language is so amazing and so very special! I use a lot of quotes from Bulgakov in everyday life. And a lot of Russian people do, in fact.

I love this film but my all-time favourite Russian movie is 'Ironia Sudbie' (Irony of Fate). I would love to remake that film one day.

"Ironia" and "Serdtse" are waaaay too different movies :)
But yes, they're both great in their own ways.

reply

ironia sud'bi is just a comedy while sobachie serdze is a farce and a critique of communism and everything else

i seen it back in russia in early 90's a few times and maybe 6-7m years a friend send me a copy but i lost it

it'd be very hard to truly appriciate the layers in this movie without at least reading the book in english...

Just got an outstanding copy from videoscreams.com for 8.50. Subs, picture, translation all very good. This is a reliable webstore out of Bellefontaine, OH.
