Every year, domestic film makers are improving in creating interesting films to the delight of us, ordinary viewers. So next weekend I propose to put Western releases aside (among them, to be honest, there has been nothing worthy in recent weeks), and explore the world of Russian cinema.

Below, find the hottest new releases, some of which are in theaters right now. But why get up and go somewhere if you can see everything at home? That’s it.

Dramas, comedies, thrillers and action films – choose and watch with pleasure:

1. This happens to people

Genre: melodrama
Audience rating: ⭐️ 6.4 (KinoPoisk)
Director: Valery Belotserkovsky, Karen Oganesyan
Cast: Yuri Stoyanov, Konstantin Lavronenko, Lyubov Tolkalina, Kirill Kyaro, Ekaterina Vilkova, Katerina Shpitsa

About what: Several love stories in which the fates of unfamiliar characters are intertwined with each other.


One man finds out about his wife’s betrayal, another, on the contrary, returns to his wife, the third hides his love, and the fourth simply watches what is happening. This film is a reflection on human life, on the complexities of relationships, on the consequences of our actions and decisions.

Directors Valery Belotserkovsky and Karen Oganesyan changed the non-standard way of narrating this story – through music and poetry. There are no good or bad people in this story, no one praises or condemns, this story is about people, and this happens with people.
