Mala Moskwa opens this Friday in cinemas throughout Poland. It's an awarded on Polish Films Festival feature, with a pretty Russian actress playing a main character . She's in the movie a wife of a Russian officer stationed in Legnica, Poland in the 60ties; falls in love with Poland and Polish guy (also a soldier) and I think she does or wants to marry him.

What we are to see in this film is also a daily life of polish town Legnica, with 60 000 Russian soldiers living along Poles but practicly (as I understand) separated from the locals and forbiden to maintain any closer relationships with them.

Love, the Russians in Poland, the 60ties and probably fair dialogues ....
I'm am to see this movie on Friday.
Anybody in Poland willing to share opinions on this movie welcomed. No subtitles.

It's already worse. Why do they always have to throw in a naked woman in Polish movies? It might be a good movie for guys but "ogniem and mieczem" is still one of the best movies Poland has ever made.

In the US they warn you if there is any violence or nudity or sexual content and they rate them accordingly as R or X and are shown on pay TV only. In Poland they are not rated accordingly and shown on public TV easily viewed by children. The same goes with Polish newspapers where they will throw in a picture or drawing of a naked woman in daily papers. In the US nude pictures go into specialized magazines not shown to the public and are sold in special sections in bookstores or some gas stations. In Poland you go to store or Budka Ruchu and there is a plastered picture of a naked woman with her ugly tits hanging out and children see that in plain view.
