Russian movies

The Russian cinematography is somehow unique. They are doing sometimes great movies, that remain in your memory for ages. It was the case with Stalker, Station for Two,The Barber of Siberia or more recently Ostrov.

I have just seen "Admiral" - a movie about the life of Alexander Kolchak and his love affair with Anna Timireva.
To my shame I knew almost nothing about Kolchak or his white resistance against the Bolsheviks in Siberia - this movie gave me something to chew on. The movie is visually rich in every aspect. Naval battle, ballroom scenes, the frozen Siberia - everything is cautiously reconstructed. IMHO it worth seeing.
