3. Plots of films

Предлагаем освежить в памяти сюжеты фильмов и ответим на вопросы.

Let’s read summaries of these films’ plots. Match each one with the name of the film.

BrigadaBrotherBoy’s word
Perestroika has already stepped from the Kremlin stands onto the streets of cities and towns. The Soviet Union is dying before our eyes, and along with freedom of speech, music and prices, freedom from conscience appears, bordering on lawlessness. While the parents are fighting for survival, the children abandoned by everyone stray into street flocks. But friendship and concepts of justice are increasingly mixed with violence and crime. 
Newly discharged from the army, a man returns to his older brother – a gangster and a killer – to start a new life in St. Petersburg where he’s soon situated in the criminal world and asked to kill someone. There his new life starts. He meets new people, including a girl, and becomes a big fan of the rock band. 
A group of friends, four of them grew up together, formed the most powerful gang in Moscow. They made business together, but an unplanned murder transformed them. Now their lives are at risk and there is no way back. 
  • What is the genre of these series? (criminal drama)
  • What do they have in common? 
  • Do they demonstrate the same epoch? (the same epoch, the same period of Russian history)
  • What were the features of that time? (clothes, music, mood) 

Read some real users ‘reviews about these films:

The movie is extremely realistic of what happened in Russia in 1989 — 2000 — actually it just shows the top of the iceberg. «Brigada» is the Russian ‘Godfather’ movie. Actors are great performers. Sounds great. Surroundings and details are absolutely realistic. I couldn’t find a better movie showing the Russians’ feelings and spirit in times of changes.
@ merrymary
The film is based on the true story of a real criminal group. I think that most of the English-speaking viewers can’t really understand some things, which are happening in the movie.
I really liked this movie «Brat». It was a gangster crime movie, but in a totally different style than most American films. There was a good story and great visuals of Russia. I liked the fact that not everything had to be explained to the audience. The director assumed that we were able to think for ourselves.
That is what makes BRAT a real masterpiece of film-making — it looks real to the last shot. Every moment is a true history of Post-Soviet Russia.
I’m a person who lived through that time and it still makes me sick in my stomach to think about that time…
Great series… I didn’t want to watch it but it became so popular so I decided to give it a try. It’s like a Time Machine for Russians from the 80-90s… not sure how we survived. Great music and actors did a fantastic job!

Answer the questions:

  • Are reviews controversial? Does everyone want to see and recollect that time? 
  • Why do some people not want to brush up on that time? 
  • Why might foreigners not fully understand these series?
  • Do they have anything in common with American thrillers?
  • Where were these films shot? Was scenery needed?

6. Vocabulary

А. Многие интересуются, как перевести пацанские понятия, тюремный сленг, уличные ругательства. Рекомендуем посмотреть:

Дени с Джорданом разобрали этот сериал.

Уголовный (блатной) жаргон — эти выражения очень специфичные и являются лакунами в языке, то есть нет точного перевода, эквивалентов в других языках. Тут еще и определение в родном языке надо хорошо знать, важен контекст, в каких случаях его употреблять. Будьте осторожнее!

  • чушпан — a hooligan, a dirtbag, a charv. 
  • аналог, но не о группировках «ботан» — wimp, geek, nerd, pussy. 
  • головой отвечать — to swear down клянусь, отвечаю.
  • сдать кого-либо, предать, наябедничать — to give smb. up, to rat on smb.
  • пришиваться / отшить — to jump in / put; to join / to brush off.

Рекомендуем посмотреть сериал The Suits, многие фразы встречаются в диалогах героев, даже очень образованных адвокатов.

Посмотрите разбор фрагмента фильма «Карты, деньги, два ствола (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels)

B. Перевод. Translate using the phrases above.

Мы не должны доверять ему, он подставит нас. Он — трус и очень нерешительный, но точно никогда не ябедничает. Положись на меня, я ручаюсь головой.
