    No, not great, in fact quite bad. Not only it has very few in common with the real T-13 mission, it has a lot of absurd and impossible events. Excellent Russian films, really based on historical missions, are "Gagarin: First in Space" and "The Age of Pioneers".

    You can find the subtitles for Gagarin here:
    https://www.opensubtitles.org/es/search/sublanguageid-all/idmovie-160468
    I don't know a reliable torrent site now, but shouldn't be too hard to find.
    I couldn't find subtitles for The Age of Pioneers, but must there be somewhere also.
    These two are really great movies, historically and technically accurate, based on real missions. "Salyut 7" is full of impossible events and not historical at all, it is rather an action movie.

    Union of Salvation (2019) russia The first trailer.

    In 1816, at the initiative of Alexander Muravyov, a group of young officers of the Russian army founded the Union of Salvation (UoS). The first members had taken part in the Patriotic War of 1812 and in the foreign campaigns of 1813–1814.

    The UoS aimed at the abolition of serfdom and at the introduction of constitutional monarchy by means of armed revolt at the time of next emperor's succession to the throne. While preparing for the seizure of power, the UoS members had to try and expand the society's influence, secure key military and civil posts in government structures, and form public opinion.

    The Union of Salvation (Soyuz spaseniya), formed in 1816, also known as the Society of True and Loyal Sons of the Fatherland since 1817, was the first secret political society of the Decembrists.

    Those muskets were up to 18mm calibre, and with a large heavy soft lead projectile that could remove limbs with the right impact... and some of it was cannon firing grape shot...

    Russia is good at producing war movies and costume dramas and always has been. Also, animated films and cartoons.

    The problem is that the rest of it is shit

    In the Soviet era we also had great comedies, philosophical movies and some of the deeper sci-fi genre as well. But we forgot how to make all that.

    Nobody pays for movies without brain dead plots. Hollywood is the display case for today's movie consumer level.

    Also, there is a chicken and egg problem in this environment. No serious movie can be made if it is not going to make its
    money back. So the level keeps itself low.

    Commies may pretend to like them and they may get airtime solely on dumb nostalgia but everyone with working brain would rather watch Limp Bizkit music video on repeat than suffer through Soviet faux artistic bullshit

    Soviet Union and Yugoslavia produced some excellent movies about the Second World War, I think that overall they were the best in the world with regard to that movie genre.

    Even the Soviet Bloc Poland could not match them, and now it is even worse.

    Romania had some interesting WWII movies, these were often centered on their change of sides in 1944.


    Few Western movies can even match them, a rare exception is the Japanese-U.S. Tora! Tora! Tora! and the British-Greek Escape to Athena, and also the Force 10 from Navarone (the last one was partially a Yugoslav movie).


    I have yet to see some of the more recent Western movies like Anthropoid, Defiance, Fury, or Midway, so I do not know the quality of these movies.



    On the other hand, the Soviet Bloc countries lagged behind the West in the realm of the science fiction movies.

    I heard about these. Haven't watched them yet myself

    Although that they're in Netflix US's top 10 list means rather nothing to me, I can't stand 95% of the Hollywood superhero and feminist rubbish these days that constantly tops the charts.

    According to you

    According to who else?


    All Soviet comedies were shit

    100% of ex-Soviet citizens would disagree including myself

    Gentlemen of Fortune, Ivan Vassilevich changes Profession, Twelve Chairs, The Golden Calf - these are all absolute classics.

    Also when you speak about Soviet cinema, you should pretty much realize that the period of Soviet cinema extends up to about the early 2000s; which was when the Russian movie industry re-orientated itself to just copying Hollywood.
    So from that you also get 90s films such as Peculiarities of the National Hunt; another classic comedy.

    Granted there are a couple other ones which other people like but I never did, such as Diamond Arm.

    This means that you have not watched Soviet films. Cinematography in the USSR was completely higher than anything modern to it in the West.
    Dude, seriously. Gaidai, Bondarchuk, Eisenstein, Danelia, Maslennikov, Ryazanov, Rowe, Menshov, Zakharov, Rostotsky. Do you think their movies are shit?
    Can you tell me that Klushantsev filmed shit? Or have you just never watched them?

    Autumn of 1941. The Nazis are advancing on Moscow. The red Army is exhausted and drained of blood, and the arrival of reserves from distant regions is still weeks and months away. Under these conditions, the Soviet command throws into battle its last operational reserve-cadets of military schools near Moscow. These guys had to hold the defense for two days - and lasted almost 3 weeks. Losses amounted to about 80% - less than 500 of the 3,500 cadets survived. The losses of the Nazis, who had a superior force, amounted to more than 5,000 infantry and more than 100 tanks in this sector of the front.

    First movie in space?

    Earlier, head of the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center Pavel Vlasov said two crew members will stay in the orbit longer than scheduled due to Russia’s plans to shoot the first movie in space aboard the station. In his words, Novitsky will return to the Earth in the Soyuz MS-18 descent capsule, along with an actress and a film director, who will travel to space to make space-based film scenes aboard the ISS.

    Wonder where the accountants are on this film's budget eh?

    Probably some state-sponsored hogwash designed to teach Russia's population about the great exploits of whatever; and to hell with the ability to do more with less, or actually making money.

    Socialite and wealthy heir: adaptation of Anna Karenina will be Netflix's first original Russian project.
    May 26th, 2021. Victoria Belikova, Yana Larina

    Streaming service Netflix has officially announced its first original Russian-made project. The series based on the novel by Leo Tolstoy "Anna Karenina" will be released under the title "Anna K". Svetlana Khodchenkova was approved for the main role. Among the directors are Natasha Merkulova, Roman Kantor, Valery Fedorovich, Evgeny Nikishov and Alexey Chupov. Filming will take place in Moscow and St. Petersburg, and the series will be set in contemporary Russia.

    The Netflix video service will release the series Anna K, based on Leo Tolstoy's novel Anna Karenina. It will be the first Russian project filmed under the auspices of the platform. The production will be carried out by the 1-2-3 Production company, which previously released such popular films as Epidemia, Dyatlov Pass, Flight, Call Center and others. The "Friend of a Druga" studio also participates in the project.

    The script for the series is being worked on by Maria Mikulina (Subtle Matter) and Roman Kantor, the author of the scripts for the Silver Skates and Epidemic projects. For the first time in his career, he will act as a director along with Natasha Merkulova, Alexei Chupov, as well as Valery Fedorovich and Yevgeny Nikishov, who had a hand in creating such high-profile films as "Policeman from Rublyovka", "Chernobyl: Exclusion Zone", "Gogol. Start". Svetlana Khodchenkova will play the main role.

    The action of the new film adaptation of the cult novel will unfold in modern Russian megacities - Moscow and St. Petersburg. Also, the heroes will find themselves in the harsh Russian outback. According to the plot, Anna Karenina, a socialite and the wife of the future governor of St. Petersburg, starts an affair with Alexei Vronsky, the heir to the metallurgical industry. Their love will have a devastating effect on both family and social ties of the heroes.

    "The series touches upon the themes of passion and fidelity and proves the irrefutable truth - that love can lead to both freedom and death, regardless of any wealth," - says the official description of the project.

    “Bringing Anna Karenina to Russia in the 21st century and presenting her to the whole world in her native language (and many others) through the amazing Netflix platform is a dream for me. Literally so, because the idea of ​​this series came to me in a dream, and since then I have not stopped following it, ”said Roman Kantor.

    The series will be available on Netflix worldwide. One of the producers, Sergei Kornikhin, representing the Drugo Druha studio, says that cooperation with the platform is "A small step for our company, but a huge step for the entire film industry."

    Valery Fedorovich and Evgeny Nikishov are sure that the series will interest many foreign viewers, since it is based on a classic work of great importance for world literature.

    “This project will be a real challenge for us. But since the future series is based on one of the fundamental works of love in world literature, we hope that we will be able to touch the hearts of viewers around the world, from Australia to Brazil, ”the directors say.

    Past film adaptations

    Leo Tolstoy's novel Anna Karenina, first published in the 1870s, has been repeatedly filmed. The first attempts to master history by means of cinematography date back to the era of silent cinema. The films of the same name were released in the Russian Empire, Hungary, Italy. Later, the work continued to attract filmmakers around the world. In the mid-1930s, Anna Karenina was played by the film star Greta Garbo in the film by American director Clarence Brown. The tape won the Mussolini Cup at the Venice Film Festival.

    Later, Anna was embodied by other famous artists: Vivien Leigh, Jacqueline Bisset, Sophie Marceau, Keira Knightley. The latter starred in an Oscar-winning film adaptation for her work as costume designers.

    The film by Alexander Zarkhi, which premiered in 1967, was extremely popular among Soviet audiences. Anna in it was played by Tatyana Samoilova, and Vronsky - by Vasily Lanovoy. This adaptation is especially close to the literary source.

    Interestingly, the ballerina Maya Plisetskaya played a secondary role in the tape. Later she performed the part of Anna Karenina in the Bolshoi Ballet.

    Also among the Russian projects based on the novel are the tapes of Karen Shakhnazarov, Sergei Solovyov, Yuri Grymov. In 2019, a short film by Radda Novikova “Dark as Night. Anna Karenina "based on the script by Alexander Tsypkin (" Unprincipled "). The action, as in the upcoming Netflix movie, has been moved to modern realities. The film stars Julia Peresild, Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Maxim Sukhanov, Matvey Lykov and others.

    Russia should also take advantage of its large stock of Wehrmacht's Great Patriotic War leftovers for Russian-produced streaming platform war films by Netflix and alikes as a counteroffensive to some Western efforts to rewrite history.

    The official position of Roscosmos is that they are working out a program of accelerated preparation for space flight. The movie is just an addition.
