Last night I sat in France, drank wine and watched this older Russian film. Good! I liked it, and we found a version with good English subtitles. It's interesting to see the vast winter landscapes which I've driven across so many times on film. Some humorous moments in the movie, but overall it's sad and depressing. The interaction between the main criminals and the Russian cops was especially amusing. What are some similar films about criminals or prison life in post-Soviet Russia? Please recommend, and I will look for versions with decent subtitles so I can understand the story. Otherwise, I'm completely lost when natives are speaking. Thanks! :)
