Russian Movies

The Russian cinematography began to develop simultaneously with the world cinema. Its most famous motion pictures enriched the world art with new perspectives and techniques. They are traditionally enlisted as 100 best movies of all the time.

Although movies were ideological, script-writers and directors tried to dodge the official line and explore people’s souls, their thoughts, aspirations, values and doings. Directors often devoted their movies to major historical events, but always put people into the center of their narrations.

Being awarded by numerous international film festivals, the Russian cinema is named among the best phenomena of the global cinematography. Besides masterpieces the Russian cinema is represented by many entertaining movies, with some of them being truly iconic.
