    “Loveless” from Russia has been nominated for an Academy Award for “Best Foreign Language Film.” The Academy Awards will be presented on March 4, 2018.


    “Loving Vincent” from Poland has been nominated for “Best Animated Feature Film.”




    What was in the first part?



    @Karpivna hmm they look like interesting movies especially the first one. Loving vincent seems more british than polish at least most of those actors are pretty famous in england.

    Andrey Zvyagintsev  is one the best film directors out of Russia. He doesn’t produce many movies. Most his movies receive international awards.  Looking forward to watch this movie. It’s already on kinozal.tv. Maybe in Russian only.



    Not from Slavic countries. It’s about a Slavic country.

    The Death of Stalin is a 2017 British-French political satire film directed by Armando Iannucci. It chronicles the Soviet power struggles occasioned by the death of dictator Joseph Stalin in 1953. The film is based on the graphic novel of the same name, translated from the French original La mort de Staline.

    Death of Stalin banned in Russia, labelled ‘extremist’

    Trailer. Full movie in English can be find online




    @”Kapitán Denis”  What was in the first part?

    The first Slavic Movie thread was started by @Sviatogor. His thread would be still be useful but I could not get it to post to discussion.  :/  So, I started a new thread.  :D 



    speaking of movies about Slavic countries, at this moment I’m watching a movie with Russian speaking Belarusians (ok) with South Slavic names and history apparently. Overthrown Belarusian dictator is on trial in Netherlands for various crimes including ethnic cleansing and he’s killing off witnesses (a touch of Albanianism).
    The film is called The Hitman’s Bodyguard if anyone’s wandering, it’s an action comedy.



    It was (at least partially) shot in Bulgaria, so there’s that about the South Slavic part.



    Shot, then stabbed.



    PROTECT MY FUTURE! “Watchtower” from the 12th of October in the cinema! During the solar eclipse, the usual boy Vitka falls into a thousand years ago, in Kievan Rus, at the height of the decisive battle of Good and Evil. In his hands there is a magic stone that gives powerful force, alongside – legendary heroes, about which he read in books, and against them – black magic and an army led by a gigantic stone monster. Now, only from the courage of the boy depends, will the light of the darkness triumph and whether the future will be as we know it.

    “Сторожова Застава” http://storojovazastava.com/
    Trailer with English subs.



    I’ve seen one of the actors in the above movie before – Roman Lutsky. 2016 — молодий Яків «Століття Якова» (4 серійний міні-телесеріал).

    He played young Jacob. Story takes place in Volyn and covers 100 years of Jacob’s life. I wish someone would translate the novel to English, novel «Century of Jacob» by Volodymyr Lis. More Ukrainian literature needs to be translated to English.  



    That “Stronghold/Watchtower” reminds me of that Russian Disney movie from last year, “The last warrior/Posledniy bogatir”:

    Was there a Ukrainian superhero movie the same year, by chance?



    @NikeBG “Russian Disney” sounds like an oxymoron.  :D  Disney is collaborating with the Russians? Ok, whatever…

    The two films seems similar, indeed. I cannot think of a Ukrainian superhero movie, at the moment. Perhaps, @saltycola knows of such a film?



    I was referring to the rather unsuccessful Russian attempt at a superhero movie last year (Guardians/Защитники), i.e. that both Russian movies were kinda entering American movie territory (though the Disney one was rather ok, even the seemingly usual and glaring propaganda was quite reduced). But if there is a Ukrainian superhero movie, it would be interesting to see for sure.




    nope, no recent superhero movies that I know of
    but you can watch киборги (the cyborgs) which is about actual heroes who fought for the donetsk airport; the scriptwriter interviewed the actual characters. here’s the trailer


    there’s also a netflix documentary about the maidan, called winter on fire, with some of our friends featured; it’s good to watch if you want to get a better idea of what inspired the changes of the last 4 years (it has really well translated english subtitles)
