Thanks for the movie scarface, I can't believe I haven't seen this specific De Fun├Ęs yet. Will have to check it out.


Hello everyone, today I'd like to present a movie as well. It is called "Life and Extraordinary Adventures of Private Ivan Chonkin", made in 1994 in a Czech/Russian/French/Italian/UK co-production. The screenplay was written by a czech playwright/actor/writer, but it's based on a satirical novel written by soviet dissident Vladimir Voinovich, which depicts the daily absurdities of the soviet regime and expresses strong anti-war sentiment. The movie is, at its heart, a comedy, and it ends on a more lighthearted note than the novel. A short description from IMDB reads:
Quote"Set in a small Ukrainian village during the outbreak of war with Germany in 1941, Private Chonkin, not overly endowed with intelligence, is left to guard a downed military aircraft. The authorities appear to have forgotten about him so this leaves him free to work his charms on the village postmistress, Nyura, until the local militia are tipped off."

I think some users of the forum, humbert for example, could find it very interesting, and still relevant in the present day.

You can watch the movie here in czech dub with english subtitles: https://vimeo.com/834341988
There is also a russian dub available, for those who will find it easier to understand, like Daniil. You can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx_X7WHWhFM


Tonight, another good movie, titled "The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane", is available on the forum.

The story: A thirteen-year-old girl, who lives with her absentee father, befriends a disabled teenage amateur magician and invites him, gradually, into her tenuous struggle against a predatory local neighbor.
