TITLE : Замок - Zamok
Kafka's Das Schloss, I watched Zamok after a gig in Budapest in 2009, with German subtitles, and a pretty hungarian as interpreter...her English was not so good, as my German but movie looks pretty accurate, I don't know if the location is St. Petersburg but I really like both...movie and Magyar girl.

TITLE : Мне не больно - Mne ne bolno
Another movie watched in a Sheffield hotel post gig but in 2011, this time with english subtitles, 3 hearts in a squatted apartment in modern Petersburg looking for Natella...really...sweet...everyone is searching for Nutella !

Mass. Patriot's rating:

I know you think I only watch Carpenter's or Agren/Bouchet/Fenech's comedies...or Carry On...Matt Helm/Flint's saga...Star Trek/Wars' franchise
You wrong...
I've spent some times studing Cinema, History and Aesthetics, at University, so I'm quite found on European directors, both eastern and western.
As I explained in the list, I had already seen some Balabanov's movies without going through world famous Brat-Brother (1997).
This list was possible because I managed to have 6 movies, in original Russian language and I hope to find and watch others by Balabanov.

Anyway Anzhelika kicks some serious ass...
