    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    Well.. my favorite Soviet movies are:

    These 3 are based on Bulgakov's plays and novells:
    "Дни Турбиных" (Days of the Turbins)
    "Собачье Сердце" (Heart of a Dog)
    "Бег" (Flight)

    "Сталкер" (Stalker)

    I also like "Собачье Сердце" a lot. I think everyone does. A classical film.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    One of my all time favorites - "Beware of the Car" aka "Uncommon Thief" or "Watch Out for the Automobile"

    "The movie plot evolves around Yuri Detochkin, a humble insurance agent, who steals cars from crooks in a Robin Hood way, disappointed by the Militsiya (Russian police) being unable to fight them efficiently. He sells the cars and transfers the money to the accounts of various orphanages. Maxim Podberyozovikov investigates his crimes and tries to prosecute him, but faces a serious moral problem in doing that".

    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    Great movie (it's rather old, BTW, filmed in 1966) and great subtitles. It's a pity that a lot of phrases are missing in the second part, but the translation itself is very good.


    I'd like to hear what rockzmom thinks about cameraman's and director's work in tnat one.

    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    One more: White Sun Of The Desert (English subtitles).

    "White Sun of the Desert (Russian: Beloe Solntse Pustyni/Белое солнце пустыни) (1969), a classic 'Eastern' or Ostern film of the Soviet Union.
    White Sun of the Desert is one of the most popular Russian films of all time. Its blend of action, comedy, music and drama have made it wildly successful and it has since achieved the status of a cult film in Soviet and Russian culture. The film has contributed many sayings to the Russian language. Its main theme song, Your Excellency Lady Luck (Ваше благородие, госпожа Удача, music: Isaak Schwarz, lyrics: Bulat Okudzhava) became a huge hit.
    The film is ritually watched by cosmonauts before many space launches.

    Plot.
    A soldier of the Red Army named Sukhov has been fighting in the Russian Civil War in Russian Asia for many years. Just as he is about to return home to his wife, Sukhov is chosen to guard and protect the harem of a guerilla leader (Abdulla). Abdulla is wanted by the Red Army and left his harem behind because the women hindered him. Sukhov's task proves to be more difficult than he imagined... "

    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    There are two film directors who are I dare say known to everyone around the territory of the former USSR and these are Leonid Gaidai and Georgi Daneliya.
    My favorite Gaidai’s movies are:
    The Diamond Arm
    The Prisoneress of the Caucasus, or Shurik's New Adventures
    The Twelve Chairs
    Impossible! ("Ne mozhet byt!").
    I wouldn’t name “Ivan Vasilievich Changes Occupation” my favorite but it’s surely among my top 20.
    And Daneliya’s:
    33 (Тридцать Три) (1965)
    Kin-dza-dza!
    Mimino (Мимино) (1977)
    Autumn Marathon (Осенний марафон)
    Oh boy, what I wouldn’t give to see them all for the first time! It’s an awful pity Jazz you can’t grasp all that humor those movies contain because 90% of it is lost through translation. It’s like watching The Simpsons in Russian. However good the interpreter might be you can’t expect him to transmit all the language subtleties to the listener on the other side.
    One of the best Soviet actors and my and Georgi Daneliya’s favorite one was Yevgeni Leonov. Alas, he passed away several years ago. He played Wef in Kin-dza-dza, he played main parts in many of Daneliya’s movies. In the film "Убить дракона" ("To Kill A Dragon") Оля mentioned he also had a leading part.
    Waterlaz’s choice of movies:
    "Дни Турбиных" (Days of the Turbins)
    "Собачье Сердце" (Heart of a Dog)
    "Бег" (Flight)
    is almost my choice.

    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    Rockzmom, I was just wondering, are you going to get the book published? Any chance you're going to post some of it on the forum?
    Just thought it'd be interesting to see what came out of the Dmitri guy

    translationsnmru! Thank you so very much for the compliment.

    The noticing of details such as the oranges and asking “Why?” is a blessing and a curse. You NEVER want to watch a movie with me. The poor Master Russian forum person that got me to start watching these films was having messages flying at them at lightning speed with questions about the films!

    I also go through my everyday life in much of the same way. It is what led me to find Master Russian and start asking all these annoying questions!

    Now, Alex (and everyone else)... I need you to find some more of the men folk on this board and have them chime in on this topic! Dmitri is 23, so I need to be certain that he would have seen these films and what lines he might use from them!

    Thanks everyone for all of your help!!!

    Kamka.... you are not the first person on the forum to ask me! I honestly don't have an answer for you.

    I can tell you that I have finished Chapter 19 and have not started Chapter 20 and this is due to the fact that I have been having side bar PMs and even actual conversations with some of your fellow Master Russian forum members. As I have been “picking their brains” I have gone back and edited previous sections of the book that I realized needed to be corrected or I wanted to expand.

    One of the members who has been of tremendous help to me is even translating the book into Russian! So, who knows, the book may be published in Russian and never see the light of day in English!

    I do know that I will need a good, no excellent, English editor for as you all know ... my English grammar and punctuation skills are severely lacking!

    Yeah. It's popular enough even with a cr@ppy dubbing. The voices are good, but many things are translated incorrectly, it seems that people who did it didn't have a good grasp of English language. The Ukrainian version is better, and it's localized, i.e. some cultural references are replaced with Ukrainian ones

    I've made a poll at a local forum (about 20 thousands of active users) for guys no older than 26. I'll tell you results later.

    Update on ....
    Office Romance (Служебный роман) 1977

    Okay... I have now watched this movie in its entirety and it is no longer a cliff hanger!!!

    It is so much better having seen the second half as it makes it that much more of a comical romantic movie. While I am certain that the version I watched did lose a great deal of Novoseltsev mumbling in embarrassment as well as Ludmila Kalugina’s indignant outrage, both actor’s tone in their voices and their expressions and mannerisms were not lost on me! I suffered and laughed along with them. It was interesting to see this movie after watching Irony of Fate and being able to compare the two romances and the portrayal of the male leads both performed by Andrei Miagkov.

    As soon as I can make the time, I will download the movie and watch it again with Olya’s subtitles!

    What I also find interesting are the words that I actually do understand! Every once in a while I will hear a word and then look to see if what I think they said is the same or close to it on captions and I feel like a little kid when I am correct!

    Waterlaz,

    These are very short clips... would you (or someone) else be willing to write the dialogue in English for me?

    Also, why are these your favorite scenes?

    Thanks...rockzmom

    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    rockzmom,
    Well I'll try...

    1. Mishlaevsky is an experienced drinker.
    Surjansky is a college(sort of) student and is drinking vodka for the first time.
    Surjansky watches Mishlaevsky take a glass of vodka and drink it.
    Surjansky: You do this very defty. (I don't know how to translate this properly though)
    Mishlaevsky: Achieved by exercising.

    2. Well.. this one is hard. (It's 1918. Civil war in Russia. Skoropadsky has power in Ukraine. He supports ukrainisation though he is mostly supported by "White movement".)
    Shervynsky is a Skoropadsky's adjutant. He as most of the officers doesn't speak Ukrainian.
    Skoropadsky: Report
    Shervynsky: I've just came on duty. And cornet Novojilcev left a blank report.
    Skoropadsky: You must speak Ukrainian(in Ukrainian)
    This is awful. Not a single officer speaks the language of this country. (in Russian)
    Shervynsky: /* Shervynsky tries to speak Ukrainian in a very clumsy way*/
    Skoropadsky: ah... Speak Russian
    Shervynsky: Yes, sir.

    3. Mishlaevsky: Refreshing vodka, isn't it?
    Surjansky: Oh yes, very refreshing.

    I hope someone will correct me. My English skills somehow let me down.

    I can't exactly explain why I like this so much... I guess it has something to do with the feel of the moment.
    And as for your other question, I'm male and 20 years old.

    Re: Favorite movie/book phrases or quotes??

    hi, very intresting topic
    I very love this russian films:
    - "Gentlemens of fortune/джентльмены удачи" - many frases became classical, as "All escaped, and i escaped too!/все побежали, и я побежал!", "A good cement, i cant wash out it!/Какой хороший цемент... Не отмывается совсем!.."
    For example (in russian): http://savok.name/28-frazy_djentlmeny_udachi.html
    - "Женя, Женечка и катюша"
    - "Brilliat hand/Бриллиантовая рука"

    all films with Anatoliy Papanov, Evgeniy Mironov, Evgeniy Leonov, Oleg Dal' - great actors!

    Anoter one is "17 moments of spring/17 мгновений весны", but it so long and not about Russia

    ps. sorry my english not so good

    Yes, it's another classic movie and is quite popular - 76 millions of tickets were sold in Soviet theatres, and I won't even guess how many millions watched it on TV since then (every Russian watched it at least twice, I think). If you've already seen "Берегись автомобиля" you'll recognise a few actors here, all are Soviet comic stars of that period.

    "Diamond hand" (196 at YouTube with English subtitles:
    http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p ... 1294194DFD

    The plot of this eccentric comedy is based on a newspaper item, found by script co-writer Yakov Kostyukovsky, about the arrest on the Italian border of a criminal who had hidden "gold and diamonds" in the plaster cast. The movie became the absolute box-office leader of 1969. It was seen by 76.7 million viewers. The thrilling adventures of Semyon Semyonovich Gorbunkov, a modest economist, accompanied by a swindler named Count, have captivated several generations of moviegoers. The smugglers' comic dialogues were picked up for citations and catchwords. Starring in the film were the brilliant actors Andrei Mironov, Anatoly Papanov, Yuri Nikulin and others.
