    Well, bleep. Mosfilm removed it. Must have ran afoul of its international rights owner, Milestone.

    Too bad.

    Boogie nights has a pool scene heavily influenced by a shot in I am Cuba. Definitely watch on big screen if one gets a chance.” A man with a camera” is a fun read that details early Cuba filmmaking.

    Wow! The stair scene long take from 3:56-5:18 is beautiful blocking and composition (location, too!).
    Then the stair climbing at 5:18 is incredible- multiple 360's as the crane ascends???

    Thanks, D!

    The film won the Golden Palm (Palm d'Or) at Cannes.

    The famous departure scene starts at the 28 min mark or thereabout.

    The bombed out building is at 35 min (the same building as in the stairs scene).

    The piano playing to the air raid scene is 39:30 or so.,

    Infantry recon scene 46 min.

    "Brother" is, technically, not a Soviet but a Russian film made in 1997 about the criminal underworld of the 1990's. It stars the late Sergei Bodrov (died in an avalanche in 2002 at the age of 30), who was becoming one of the bigger stars of the era. There are subtitles off CC but they kind of suck. Dialog is fairly sparse anyway and the plot summary is quite clear on the film's Wikipedia page.
