    Negative sentances and the genitive case!

    Привет
    Я не понимаю правило о использовании родительного падежа в негативных предложениях (?).

    Какое из этих предложений правильно?

    Я никогда не смотрел никакого русского фильма.
    или
    Я никогда не смотрел никакой русский фильм.

    Спасибо за помощь

    Hey that's an awesome explanation, thanks for that.
    So according to the fourth rule, i suppose it would be

    Я не видел никакого фильма.

    It depends on context.
    никакого фильма - i guess something like "...any movie"
    ни одного фильма - "...a movie"
    IMHO

    According to Essentials of Russian Grammar by Nicholas Maltzoff (by my memory), you use the genitive after negation except in the following cases:

    -The accusative is preferred with feminine nouns, both in written and conversational Russian

    -The accusative is used in reference to something known by both persons

    -The accusative is used in reference to one specific concept or thing (Он не любит балет)

    -The accusative is used to avoid a cluster of words in the genitive case (Я не знаю номер телефона)

    "ni odnogo fil'ma" ili "nikakih fil'mov" (pl). "Nikakogo fil'ma" sounds wrong.

    I'd say "Я никогда не смотрел никаких русских фильмов".
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.

    OK, here's what I think.
    If you just want to state that you have never watched any Russian movie then you would say: "Я не видел ни одного русского фильма". Using никакого here would be wrong.
    Now, let's suppose that your friend tries to find the "War and Peace" DVD in his messed up DVD collection. And he asks you if you saw it somewhere. Then you could answer: "Я не видел никакого русского фильма".
    As for the case you described, well, you are right. Full answer will be: "Не видел я никакого Гладиатора!". Notice the word order to express that you are pissed off a bit. And in this case you usually use the particular movie name.

    Where did i say anything about russian movies? The movie gladiator which i'm refering to is an american movie. Where did russian come from? Im not even talking about russian, im talking about the movie gladiator.
