Russian Video: The Overcoat (Шинель), 1926. Movie!


Russian Video from Russia continue celebrating 200 anniversary of outstanding Russian writer Nikolai Gogol. This weekend we planned to show you a scary movie “Viy”. But I still can not get it uploaded so my suggestion is let’s today watch an old silent movie “The Overcoat” (Шинель) made in 1926 by Grigori Kozintsev and Leonid Trauberg. This movie is based on Nikolai Gogol’s stories “The Overcoat” and “Nevsky Prospect”.

I personally think that is interesting to watch a movie about life 170 years ago and that’s also interesting to watch how they made movies 90+ years ago. So lets look 😉
