The Best Russian Movies that You Can Watch Online

Top Chart of Russian Movies You Need To Watch

Thought Russian cinema is not so popular as Hollywood, there are a lot of beautiful Russian movies you need to watch. I searched in internet for charts where experts and community vote for movies they like and compared these lists of the best Russian movies with my own impression. Finally, I’ve decided to pick two charts – first is new Russian movies (released during last two decades) and second is legendary Russian movies (made mostly at USSR tree or more decades ago).

There are a lot of great Russian movies, released not so far ago – and most of them show some parts of Russian national personality – that’s why they touch our souls and we like it. Here is the list of first 10 with the links to watch online.
