Russian Roundup – September 2020

with No Comments

Привет! This month I watched a fun movie called Самая обаятельная и привлекательная. It’s from 1985 so it doesn’t feel quite as dated as other Soviet films. The plot centers around a young office worker trying to snag a husband. And of course, everyone around her has an opinion on the best way to do this. 🙂 Speaking of marriage, I’m also still watching the same documentary about Russian Old Believers in Brazil… currently on Традиции: браки, дети и тусовки and planning to watch the rest later this week.

To the roundup!
