Gorky Guy:
Brill, Manny. 'Сам ты Наташа' should be compulsory viewing for any self-respecting sex tourist. The tune is quite catchy too. Naturally, Mrs Gorkster hates it.

What are your favorite Russian movies?

My absolute favorite is "A Zori Zdes Tikhie" or in english, "The Dawns Here Are Quite".  One of the first films for the very beautiful Russian actress Olga Ostroumova.

Set during the Great Patriotic War, a gunner Sergent (played by Yuri Sorokin)  must go and investigate the report of a fascist reconnaissance patrol in his sector.  He takes with him 5 female soldiers.  They discover that instead of a patrol, it is a reconnaissance in force and they are seriously outnumbered.  One-by-one the 5 women soldiers die heroic deaths stopping the fascist paratroopers.  After the war, their sacrifice is remembered by the surviving Sergent.

It's an OUTSTANDING flick!  Here it is on


 I haven't seen that many Russian films, but I really liked "Burnt by the Sun"

 Col. Sergei Kotov, his wife Maroussia and daughter Nadia are enjoying life at their idyllic country estate when a mysterious man arrives, shattering their hopes for a peaceful existence. Mitia, who once was Maroussia's lover, seems perfectly charming at first -- but it soon becomes clear he has a sinister agenda. Nikita Mikhalkov's powerful portrait of viciousness during the Stalin era won the 1994 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film.

I`ll just post the ones you can order on Netflix:

1) BURNED BY THE SUN (Utomlyonnye Solntsem)
Portrait of viciousness during the Stalin era won the 1994 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film.

2) Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears (Moskva Slezam ne Verit).
An Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film, this drama centers on three women struggling to establish themselves in Moscow. Their pursuit of professional and domestic bliss begins in 1958, then jumps ahead 20 years to see how many of their dreams came true.

The old stuff:
3) The Diamond hand (Brilliantovaya ruka), 1968.
One of the most beloved Russian comedies, this eccentric farce concerns a criminal operation that smuggles gold and diamonds inside a plaster arm cast. Modest economist Semyon Gorbunkov and a swindler named The Count embark on a wild series of smuggling adventures peppered with comic dialogue that spawned several popular catchphrases.

In case this is of interest I will post a link.   You should be able to download movies and programs in Russian.   Some are free and some are $ 1.99.  I have not tried it myself yet and just found this site.
