Soviet/Russian military movies

Here are links on best Soviet movies which I found in www.imdb.com., and it is practically all best Soviet movies about WWII.
As I understood it is possible to buy it in West but I do not understand about translation of these movies in English.

I'm a little upset... I always wondered if Russia ever made war movies. this list answers that question.. I'll have to be on the lookout for them.. especially for #1 it sounds good.

Well, some of these films would be useful for some university Russian language vidoetechs I suppose. I shall look into ordering some for my university. Are there now or were there any Soviet TV series on the lines of "Band of Brothers?"

Great list.

I think I might have seen one of them on TV. The one about the Partisans. It was a very brutal film in Russian. It was about 10 years ago now so I can't remember much.
Good film though.

Thanks for the list.

Source for Videos/DVDs

Here are a couple of sources for those who want to get copies of some of the movies Andrey lists.

International Historic Films at http://www.Historicvideos.com
This has a number of the films Andrey mentioned, including Come and See and The Cranes Are Flying (I got my copies of these from this company). It also includes documentaries on the Red Army, etc, produced by the Soviet government in the years just before the beginning of WWII, as well as some produced during the war.

RBCmp3.com is another good source of Russian language films (VHS and DVD) as well as music CDs and books. They have a separate section entitled "Russian films with English subtitles" that is useful for those who don't speak Russian, and you can search at this location for "war films". I noticed several of the ones Andrey listed are available at this site.

You also may want to check out Armchair General Issue 6 when it comes out next January. In the Dispatches section, it's planned to have a section on Top 10 War Films, and one of the films Andrey lists made the Top 10 list (not bad considering the fact that most of the films our readers would necessarily be familiar with are mainly limited to those produced in USA, UK, and Germany).

I want to add some more comments.

As I understand most famous in West Soviet military movies are “The Cranes are Flying” and “Ballade About Soldier”.

But in reality these movies are not “military” movies. These movies are love stories which show mainly DEEP Soviet REAR in time of war.
