    I love this movie but I understand spoken Russian very well and I know a fair bit about Soviet culture. But otherwise this movie would most likely be not understandable. It's extremely difficult to translate and the jokes are too culturally specific. Hard core movie buffs like it because they like anything that is "difficult" or "obscure", but an average English-speaking viewer will most likely not get it and will find it confusing or boring.

    А я вот не соглашусь. Мне кажется, что в этом фильме речь идёт об универсальных вещах, которые всем должны быть понятны.

    it's not just the language and the cultural references but also the style of filmmaking which is difficult for an average viewer (not a buff of the obscure and the avant-garde)

    Да, первый раз мне и самому было не привычно. Ты же знаешь, что отнюдь не все наши фильмы сделаны в такой манере.

    Очень интересно узнать мнение наших друзей из разных стран об этом фильме. Посмотрите! Попробуйте понять. Этот фильм у нас безумно любим многими. А цитатами из него мы порой просто разговариваем!

    that's because you're a Russian

    True words.

    I think the movie is long and slow for a good reason. I remember watching that movie in 1987 in the theater and it really felt like I was on another planet with no means to escape and couldn't believe I was actually back to the normal life.

    Поспорю. Мне кажется, что это случай двоякого толкования. Я подразумевал, что мне было не так привычно видеть это, как обычно, когда я смотрю фильмы Данелия. Хотя прямого противопоставления в моей фразе и не было. Так что я тоже немножко прав, нет?

    Я лишь для прикола придрался. По мне, русский язык и так чрезмерно усложнён. Поэтому, я никогда не исправляю нашего брата. А насчёт пробела - нехай кто-нибудь с гуманитарным образованием нас рассудит. Громозека, например.

    Да не, придирки такие как раз по делу. Лучше исправлять, чтобы не оставлять откровенные ляпы на виду у всех. Всё-таки форум в том числе и образовательный.

    Хотя мне кажется, что скоро quartz уже сможет нашего брата поправлять!

    I'll start with some comedies:

    Films by Leonid Gaidai:
    Иван Васильевич меняет профессию (Ivan Vasilievich Changes His Profession), 1973; based on a play by Bulgakov
    Бриллиантовая рука (The Diamond Arm), 1968 on google videos with English subtitles
    Операция „Ы“ и другие приключения Шурика (Operation Y and Other Adventures of Shurik), 1965
    Кавказская пленница, или Новые приключения Шурика (Kidnapping, Caucasian Style) 1967

    Older films by Grigori Aleksandrov:
    Веселые ребята (Jolly Fellows), 1934; inspired by Hollywood style slapstick musical comedies
    Волга-Волга (Volga-Volga), 1938; Stalin's favourite movie

    Кин-Дза-Дза! Георгия Данелия, 1986 г. -- Kind of like a Soviet version of HGTTG; subtitles aren't the best way to experience it as a lot of the humour is very hard to translate (both the language and the cultural references); best for a fan of weird "steam-punk-like" sci-fi
    It’s amazing how a non Russian could have picked up what I think are the best Russian movies ever. (Except for Веселые ребята and Волга-Волга. "Everything changes when you hit the big one-oh... Candy doesn't taste as good" and Веселые ребята are not funny any more )
    Apart from picking them up for educational pursuits, do you also like them?

    that's not a matter of personal taste?

    yes, they are funny and, besides, there are different kinds of humour

    There is no such thing! You must have misunderstood something or have taken it the wrong way.

    I have to confess that I do not like any of them, except maybe "Блиллиантовая рука". I agree they are very well done from the cimenatographical point of vew, and are must see when you are getting aquainted with Soviet/Russian cinema. But they set my teeth on edge for some reason.
    You know, I envy you a little here, i guess that freshness of your perception makes them so much better and more intriguing.

    I'd recommend two great comedies from that period:

    1) "Берегись автомобиля" (1966) - all time classics with great actors starring! Really smart and funny.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShTVe3oXg5w
    There was also version with English subs somewhere on Youtube

    2) "Служебный роман" (1977) - my personal favourite

    I don't know who it's offending (you'd better open a new thread about that) but if you keep abusing the forum "edit" function like this I might just as well disable it.
