The Luzhin Defence Set in the late 1920s, The Luzhin Defence tells the story of a shambling, unworldly chess Grand Master who arrives in the Italian Lakes to play the match of his life and unexpectedly finds the love of his life. Discovering his prodigious talent in boyhood overshadowed by his parents' failing marriage, Luzhin's lyrical passion for chess has become his refuge and rendered the real world a phantom. Already matched up by her family to the very suitable Comte de Stassard, when Natalia meets Luzhin, she is drawn to the erratic genius and offers him a glimpse outside of his chess obsession. But it is a world he is not equipped to deal with and his two worlds collide to tragic effect. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0211492/

Love and Death A Russian is caught up in the Napoleonic invasion of his country. Much of the humor comes from the philosophic conversations that people break into in the midst of crisis situations. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073312/

There are numerous versions of  Anna Karenina , The  Karamazov brothers, War and Peace , The master and Margarita, Doctor Zhivago and many others  based on books from the Russian literature.

If you like typical Hollywood style movies scripted in Hollywood, then movies in which Russia or Russians are discussed would include a standard set of attributes: snow, vodka, winter hat with ear flaps, coarse people with very heavy accent and poorly translated Russian conversations.
