    I have searched for a similar thread thoroughly but it seems like there's nothing! There are only threads about national cinematographies (Serbian, Bulgarian and Montenegrin) and Slavic animated movies. I'm creating it here in the Philosophy & Art section because films and series are also a form of art. So…

    Let's discuss any Slavic film or series, that is – either directed mostly in Slavic lands or spoken mostly in any Slavic language. Recommend, review, comment, discuss or simply watch anything presented here. Anything related to Slavic cinematography. Please, leave any political propaganda out, the discussion should be only related to cinematography.

    For starters – I do recommend these films.

    Jak rozpętałem drugą wojnę światową (How I Unleashed WW2), 1969, Polish (with pol subs)
    Part 1
    Part 2
    Part 3

    A really funny Polish film. You don't even need to know Polish to get the humour in some scenes. In this film, we follow the story of a Polish soldier, Franciszek Dolas, who thinks he started WW2 because he tried to shot some German general. He gets into imprisonment and wants to break free and get back home into Poland so he can fight against Poland's enemies. Needless to say, his journey back is very hard but very funny too!

    Katyń, 2007, Polish (with eng subs)
    I'm sure you have already seen this film. Nonetheless – This is a really great depiction of the Katyń massacre, when you watch it, you get chills through your spine. You feel sympathy for the casual Poles who are driven into insanity and who are being brainwashed by two political propagandas – Soviet and Nazi

    Testament, 2006, Kashubian (with pol subs)
    A short movie spoken in Kashubian. Even if the storyline is very simple – a peasant thinks he's dying so he reads his testament to the whole family who is fighting over some petty and minor things. A great opportunity to hear how the actual Kashubian is spoken, it sounds really pleasant (and I as a Czech speaker could understand it even without the Polish subs).

    Тетовирање/Tetoviranje, 1991, Macedonian (with eng subs)
    It's about a man who finds himself sleeping in a train station because of a quarrel with his wife. Police finds him suspicious and he gets sent into a prison. There, he meets fellow inmates who are mostly innocent too. The torue horror begins there. Noone has prepared me for the insanity of this film. Noone. In my opinion, it's very dark but enjoyable.

    Сталкер/Stalker, 1980, Russian (eng subs)
    Part 1
    Part 2

    A great movie. You either don't like or love it. Every dialogue, every scene has a certain philosophical context to it. When I finished watching it, I felt very strange and exhausted because of the philosophy behind it (and the length too, hehe). But I love it!

    Let's get the discussion going!

    What Ukrainian-spoken film would you recommend me?

    My favorite piece of Slavic Cinema has to be a Russian film called Блокпост (blockpost) Its about a group of Russian soldiers in Chechnya. It captures what soldiers are like perfectly. Great Film, you can also watch it on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4ApkELcEng

    I hope that some day Poles will make a good high-budget Witcher movie or tv series. Before Hollywood gets its hands on it.

    Siemano :)

    Do you have a link to that movie with English or Polish subtitles? Unfortunately my understanding of the Russian language is limited to simple conversations.

    Oh! I forgot to add… Zhmurki. Its a Russian gangster/comedy, kinda like Lock, Stock or Snatch. I should also mention Czas Surferów, same gangster/comedy genre.
