This Soviet TV series is probably the best TV show ever made. It is pure кино and deeply anti-fascist, anti-imperialist, and anti-USA. It's about a Soviet spy sabotaging peace talks between the OSS and Himmler (to allow the USA and Nazi Germany to team up on the USSR). It was made at the request of the head of the KGB. The tension and drama in this show is outstanding!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZhgXs_iFRs&list=PLHiAMOiVIvsD2u8g0RLwvdRScEe9yiUr5&index=2&t=0s


>>1007Why is THIS not getting any responses?


Finished the first two episodes. I wasn't expecting it to be so good.The only downside for me are the newsreel and the narrator's voice who sounds incredibly bored.


>the manhole sceneholy fuck


This show is fucking badass. Does anyone have suggestions for other cool spy films from the Soviet Union?


>>1024Finished watching it the other day. Fantastic show and it only gets better. One of my favourite scenes is the one with the German general on the train when he says that a nation ruled by shopkeepers will always lead to fascism.


>>1081I haven't seen other Soviet spy movies, but Kinocenter Mosfilm has a ton of Soviet movies with subtitles:https://www.youtube.com/user/mosfilm/videosThere could be something there. Fall of Berlin is really good.


>>1021It’s /hobby/ mate. Only handful of us post here. It’s really boring, we need more people.


>>1021>>1088Anyway, thanks for the rec. cheers!


>>1088Best thing you can do is make more topics and posts


Sadly don't have much to add about 17 moments of Spring (since everything I know and have on it is in Russian).I do know of a film called Cross of Ironhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_of_IronIt's interesting but still has some anti-soviet tones sadly.


>>1088We need to advertise on the other boards or on other chans like 2ch.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-iVfLX2tvYreally good soviet comedy with english subtitles




Comfy lockdown viewing


Eternal Call had a section where one of the protagonists was a spy…


I thought Kin-Dza-Dza! was funny.


This is one of my favorite SF films period. The social commentary is a subtle as a brick, but it's still really atmospheric and inventive. Just totally nutty worldbuilding that could never come out of Hollywood.


Comrades, here is the DVD encode for Seventeen Moments of Spring:


does it have subs?


I'm halfway through the first episode…please tell me this gets better


The first episode is kind of meh because it's filled with war reels. It gets better, don't worry.


It gets better, don't worry. I havent' finished it yet, but I'm getting hooked.


My parents saw this last year and have been bugging me to watch it ever since. Next on my list so I'll report when I get around to it!


This isn't an action packed burger movie. It is a very noir spy drama with historical context.

For a more fast-paced spy film of similar type watch Sword and Shield (1968).

Of course it does, what a silly question.


I really wish there was a game based on it.


Not a bad idea actually. Might want to pitch that to some amateur Russian game developers.


how would it work, though?


A spy game similar to Hitman except with less assassination and more intelligence gathering. Adding in some elements of Sword & Shield would be useful as well. An esoteric spy game.


It should have a system that measures how close you are to being caught by someone. So whenever you do espionage actions, you leave some kind of trail unless you cover it up properly. Each different character accumulates tokens based on espionage actions they saw you do, and how suspicious the actions are. And can copy the tokens to each other by talking. If the tokens accumulate past a certain level, they will want to interrogate you.

The single most realistic and despicable character. He's not even a fascist, just a bastard betraying people for a living.



delete this.


Delete what?


The music is always sad to me.

Quote from the Soviet film "The Great Citizen" (1937):
"Oh, twenty years after a GOOD WAR, get out and take a look at the Soviet Union - composed of lets say thirty or forty republics."

On January 1, 1937 as part of the so-called USSR there were only 11 republics, implying that that USSR has planned to annex at least 20 European states during WW2. Communist propaganda also portrayed total war as a noble fight for internationalism.

After the war the propaganda has drastically changed, now claiming that USSR is the "Bastion of Peace" (СССР оплот МИРА). But there is a catch, since in Russian language both "peace" and "world" have the same word "mir" (МИР). So when a Russian says "we need mir", he can mean botch "we need peace" and "we need the whole world".

The Soviet movie itself:

Внешнеполитическая пропаганда ХХ века исключительно пацифична. У всех. У СССР, США, 3 Рейха. Советская пропаганда, например, строилась над "вершковом пацифизме". Суть:

Пусть помнит враг, укрывшийся в засаде:
Мы начеку, мы за врагом следим.
Чужой земли мы не хотим ни пяди,
Но и своей вершка не отдадим!

И внешнего и внутреннего потребителя пропаганда убеждала: мы за мир, мы не хотим войны. Они™ хотят войны. А мы™ нет. У СССР "Фонд мира" даже был. Убеждали в таких объёмах, что люди генерировали мем-анекдоты про борьбу за мир, после которой камня на камне не останется. Такую риторику может использовать только цивилизация, которая помнит войну, ибо она видела войну и действительно боится её. Даже самого слова "война".


Ну и что ты хотел сказать?


Это репост просто


A similar theme is that of Soviet partisans and recon troops, so if anyone is interested a short series called Отряд специального назначения from 1987, is quite good.


Ошибка резидента, Судьба резидента, Возвращение резидента, Конец операции резидент


>The social commentary is a subtle as a brick
And still liberals tried to paint it as criticism of USSR


Because any social commntary about Russia or in Russia is automatically "Stalin bad" in their propaganda addled minds.


Yup. Still, Danelia is a great director. Did you watch Афоня movie? I personally found it to be a great piece of soc realism.


Yes I've seen it, I've seen most of his films, my all time favorites are С Легким Паром and Мимино


A similar short series came out called SMERSH, that features a single main character and his behind the lines operations throughout the war. It's pretty good.
