iCM Forum's Favourite Russian Movies
Posted Image

Help to decide what our favourite Russian movies are.

Eligible are movies from Russia and the Soviet-Union. This means including everything from all parts of the Soviet-Union during its existence but excluding movies from countries other than Russia herself after and before the existence of the Soviet-Union. Simply said; everything that's listed with Russia or Sovjet Union as country on imdb is permitted. Because of co-productions and other reasons you have to decide for yourself if a movie is Russian enough to submit. Btw this is not a strict rule, I'm not going to check if all the movies on all lists are from either Russia or the Soviet Union, it's a guideline so everyone is more or less on the same page on what can be nominated.

Deadline is 7 February 2016


  • Shorts, mini-series and TV-episodes from anthology series where the episodes are unrelated, are allowed. Tv-series aren't allowed.
  • Imdb-lists or iCM-lists are accepted. (If you can't make either, ask another user to help you out.)
  • Lists can be any length.
  • Each movie can only be named once (of course)
  • Lists can be ranked or unranked. When not specified I will consider a list as ranked.
  • Partially ranked list aren't allowed. Partially ranked list, that still are submitted, will be considered as unranked.


Scoring for ranked lists: Half-life = 50 (probably, depends on the average list size)
Scoring for unranked lists: Every film on your list receives the same number of points (the average of what they would have received if your list was ranked).

Some help:
Movies from Russia, you rated on imdb
Movies from the Soviet Union, you rated on imdb

Participants (38)


Please check if you're on this list and it's stated correctly.


давай начнем!

Let me get this post in before Armo or Local sees this thread: it's давайте, not давай. :geek: :P

Edit: and I'm already having second thoughts. :/ Maybe both options are correct after all...

Deadline is 31 January 2016 (but because I'm pretty late with starting this one (and because I'm not a schoolteacher :P ) I'm open to postpone it.)
We've got two other polls in February, so I hope you don't postpone it too much. <_<

Which way will I be sure I won't be forgetting movies? So far I did this:

- Filter my IMDB-ratings on country=Soviet Union, sorted by my rating and copied all URLs to Excel from movies with rating 8 to 10.
- Do the same with country=Russia.
- Do the same with language=Russian
- Remove all duplicates in the Excel-list.

Still need to remove a few that aren't Russian in my opinion, but happen to have a Russian co-producing company or whatever.

Anything I'm missing this way?

Wouldn't the first two cover everything? What would you miss by skipping the third one?

I don't know. I just want to be as thorough as possible when it comes to IMDB-tags, so I tried to collect URLs in as many ways I could think of that gave me eligible movies. Removing duplicates afterwards is easy.

Vinnie Pukh on Imdb has Country: Soviet Union, so it is allowed.

Here it is on IMDB:
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls031468641/

Please check your list. I changed two links manually, because there were some characters missing. In one case you entered a moviemeter-link.

Not sure if I should submit a list. I think I have seen way under 100 eligible films. And making a list of the same mix of Tarkovsky and the silents every submits doesn't seem to add anything...

Very strange to see that wiki and imdb think a movie from 1991 Lithuania, Trys Dienos, is from the Sovjet-Union somehow
But you also have a clearly Hungarian movie on there...

So it is Ukrainian after all? Too bad. I've deleted it now.

I don't understand why it's still not on any official lists. We should change that by the next 500<400. :)

Released in 1991, means its origins may well be 1990 or earlier. Lithuania only became independent in 1990. Quite likely that it was Soviet funded
