Khun PC from Bioscope Webboard just told me about birubirFilms’s Channel, which has many Soviet films with English subtitles.

It’s a real treasure. There are many films I haven’t heard before. There are also many films I wish I have time to watch, such as:

1.THE AMPHIBIAN MAN (1961, G. Kazansky & V. Chebotarev)

2.THE DAWNS ARE QUIET (1972, Stanislav Rostotsky) nominated for Oscar’s Best Foreign Language Film

3.THE DEAD MOUNTAINEER HOTEL (1979, Grigori Kromanov) from a novel of the Strugatsky Brothers

4.HEART OF A DOG (1988, Vladimir Bortko) from a story by Mikhail Bulgakov

5.IVAN VASILIEVICH CHANGES OCCUPATION (1973, Leonid Gaidai) from a play by Mikhail Bulgakov

6.LETTERS FROM A DEAD MAN (1986, Konstantin Lopushansky)

7.MOSCOW DOES NOT BELIEVE IN TEARS (1980, Vladimir Menshov) the winner of Oscar’s Best Foreign Language Film

8.OBLOMOV (1980, Nikita Mikhalkov)

9.RUSLAN AND LUDMILA (1972, Aleksandr Ptushko)

10.A SLAVE OF LOVE (1976, Nikita Mikhalkov)

11.TO THE STARS BY HARD WAYS (1981, Richard Viktorov)

12.AN UNFINISHED PIECE FOR A PIANO PLAYER (1977, Nikita Mikhalkov) from a play by Anton Chekhov

I also found out that AELITA, QUEEN OF MARS (1924, Jakov Protazanov) is available in Youtube:

  1. This is my reply to PC in my bilingual blog:

    Thank you very much for linking to the Taipei Story’s Channel. I have been wanting to watch A PAGE OF MADNESS (1926, Teinosuke Kinugasa) for a long time. Now my wish is partly fulfilled. All I have to do is find the time to watch it.

    Thanks a lot for recommending WE (1969, Artavazd Peleshian, A+++++). I worship this film. The cinematography and the editing are great. This film accidentally reminds me of ARARAT (2002, Atom Egoyan, A+) and CALENDAR (1993, Atom Egoyan, A+), which also deal with Armenia.
