1. Several days in the life of I.I. Oblomov (1979)
A film based on the novel by I. A. Goncharov “Oblomov” by director Nikita Mikhalkov.

2. Quiet Don (1957)
A multi-part film that is already considered a classic. The role of Aksinya, Grishka’s beloved, is played by the young Elina Bystritskaya. It was this role that became one of the best for the actress. The film conveys the emotions of the main characters of the famous novel by M. A. Sholokhov as much as possible.
3. Doctor Zhivago (2005)
The film is dedicated to the epic novel of the same name by BL Pasternak, which is considered one of the best works of the prose writer. At school, it is not always possible to read this work in its entirety, although it has many examples for exams and essays, so we recommend watching at least the film, as it touches on all sorts of topics and can help you out in December.
4. A hero of our time (2006)
An eight-part film in which you can see the handsome Pechorin, as portrayed by director Alexander Kott. The picture is based on the first psychological novel in Russia by M. Yu. Lermontov. There are many episodes in the film because it covers the events of each chapter – “Taman”, “Princess Mary”, “Fatalist”, “Bela” and “Maxim Maksimych”. So do not hesitate, everything is strictly according to the text!
5. Dead Souls (1984)
Well, what about without the classics. A five-part feature film based on the first volume of Nikolai Gogol’s poem. The actors conveyed well the character of each character and the era of that time. By the way, Gogol said that not many people can understand the true meaning of the work. But we are sure that after watching the film, you will be able to come to the correct conclusion.
