Welcome to КИНОКЛУБ, dear Russian learners! Enjoy Russian school (and our author Elena from Australia) shares with you the second part of must-watch Russian movies. If you missed the first part, check it out HERE and proceed with this post. Long story short: the first Russian movie is a dynamic mix of action adventure and a war-time thriller. The second one raises important issues relating to the understanding of different generations. And the third number is a must for Harry Potter and the Chronicles of Narnia fans.
Never Say Goodbye (2018). In Russian – Прощаться не будем
October, 1941. The might of the German Army is descending on Tver in order to capture it and advance directly on Moscow. Only two thousand people with few supplies are faced with the choice of protecting their hometown, fleeing or being destroyed. Saboteurs, sensing the fall of the Red Army are busy paving the way for the invaders. The town is on the edge. Everyone is trying to uncover the saboteurs. Struggling to keep order in the town, Major Pavel Sysoev unwittingly becomes a suspect.
This is a story about people on the edge trying to decide whether to fight for a doomed town or to escape and save themselves. There are no simple answers. The movie is also a complex portrayal of how people under incredible pressure and fear do not stop being human, loving and caring with an absolute passion.
The Challenge (2018). In Russian – Последнее испытание
At a full-house premier of the much-anticipated new musical production of Romeo & Juliet high school graduates and their former teacher mingle with the opening night crowd. They are surrounded by people who are full of excitement. But instead of a new interpretation of a classic, the on-stage drama is overtaken by real events. The theatre is filled with terrorists and the audience are taken hostage. In a high-pressure situation where hundreds of lives are at stake, the experienced school teacher is thrust unwittingly into the role of chief negotiator between the police and the terrorists.
Film Director Alexey Petrukhin: “The movie raises important issues relating to our history, religion. And most importantly – what kind of actions is a person ready to take in a critical situation?”
The Last Warrior (2017). In Russian – Последний богатырь
Come of the journey to the land of Belogorie, where Russian fairy-tale characters, magic and enchanted sword fights are part of everyday life! You will be thrust into the fantasy world of Baba Yaga and Koschei, villains in traditional Russian fairy tales but in a story that brings classic Slavic folklore roaring to life. Varvara, the Princess of Belogorie is hunting down the last bogatyr (warrior knight) in the world. Ivan, an ordinary modern-day Moscovite, is transported to Belogorie, and thrust into the centre of a war between the forces of good and evil. Harking back to classic fantasy stories like Harry Potter and the Chronicles of Narnia, this film is a must see for lovers of fantasy of all ages.
