5.0 out of 5 stars A moment of Soviet brilliance, 28 Jan 2004
This review is from: Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears [DVD] [1981] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
There is a reason why this movie won the Oscar for the best foreign language film in 1981. The reason is pretty simple: it is one of less than a handful of Soviet movies that represented life as it was. The story is about three girlfriends and their lives. I will not explain the story here for one has to see it to understand it and I am not a fan of spoilers.
This is not a history masterpiece or a family-friendly comedy that the 70's and 80's were famous for in USSR, but rather a life story that touched many hearts and in fact is still easily understood by most Russians.
If you ever wanted to understand modern Russian culture and where it comes from, this movie will provide you with enough examples and explanations.
Enjoy it...
