Can anybody tell me what happened in the third (and final?) part of 72 Metra? I saw two mornings of it but was away for the third.

Now that I have a TV I'm developing a taste for modern Russian dramas. Not that I can understand more than 10% of the words.

How possible is it to find a cheap but workable used VCR? Now that I have my Batnik, my sailor shirt, and my rubber boots I'm thinking of making another purchase. Or maybe I should save up for an Ural.

Zaneth,

It's worth seeing!

Actually, I haven't seen it
but here is some Russian saying:
it's always better to see at least once than to listen 100 times.

To see the film you can buy it here (DVD / VHS / MPEG4)
http://www.ozon.ru/?context=detail&id=1665149&partner=loversnot
So, you can use your laptop.

As for VCR there are 2 ways:

1. new one - http://www.eldorado.ru/ - from 2500 r. or VCP (if you don't need to record TV movies) from 1800 r
2. used one - classifieds papers or http://komok.pp.ru/view/10/55 - from 800 r.

P.S. in Gorbushka everything is cheaper. Wink

Not true! The DVDs at Leningradsky Vokzal are 100r while the ones at Gorbushka are 130-150r. Plus, at Leningradsky Vokzal, there are a few shops open 24/7 and I think the selection (don't confuse variety with quantity) is wider. I suspect at Gorbushka, they mostly have the same distributors, which if true, means they'll have the same DVDs.

Also, Tzaritzynskii Rynok (metro Tzaritzyna) and Sazelovsky metro has cheaper/better electronics (mostly computer stuff).

The Russians I know prefer Gorbushka for its music and home appliances.

zaneth, do you really want me to tell you what happens, or are you gonna buy it? Smile

There is a nice(ish) twist of sorts at the end but actually I didn't like it that much. Like you, I struggle with the dialogue though, so I probably missed a lot of subtleties.

Thanks for the info. Nice to get an idea of prices before buying something used. I would like to be able to record something off the TV. Might be useful for Russian to English translation practice for students.

No, I guess I should do the legwork to see it. I retract my request to have a spoiler broadcast.

Waxwing, I don't think your problems and my problems language-wise are comparable. Subtleties? I'm working on basic plot elements, here. I mostly like the movie for the visuals and the pace and the story elements I can catch without language.

Yikes, Gorbushka. I don't know if I'm ready for any place that GenXy right now. All those nerds and goths behind the counter. All that plastic, all that noise. Weird vibrations man. A little too intense. Are any of those other places a little mellower?
