Russian Film


Watching original Russian films is an easy and fun way to become introduced to the native language environment without actually travelling to the country.

The Russian film industry flourished in the years of USSR and it continues producing extraordinary pictures that are known in the English speaking world so little. Meanwhile, these films provide a viewer not only with an extensive native language material. They also allow us a glance at the Russian mentality and contemporary culture.

The Russian film music written by talented composers and performed either by actors or professional singers makes the experience even more enjoyable
