The Самогонщики (Russian Moonshiners) Turn 50! 1961-2011

Filed under: cinema,cultural,performing arts,Russian,Soviet period,video — 01varvara @ 00.00

There are two comedies in this compilation… the Moonshiners is the second presentation, starts at about 10 minutes in…


There’s virtually no dialogue in these films… save for a song at the beginning of The Moonshiners… so, if you don’t know Russian, don’t worry! It’s all sight gags. Самогонщики is one of the greatest comedy films ever made in any country… see why Russia loved Yuri Nikulin’s comedic genius. It’s a lot like a Russian Three Stooges… This is 28 minutes of good clean fun…
