My favourite "Russian movie" is the skits done by comedian Magda Szubanski in the Australian comedy TV show 'Fast Forward'. In each one Magda and some bloke were meeting in secret for sex, usually in a car, but of course it was snowy Russia, and before the couple got all their layers of warm clothes off, the movie would end. This happened again and again.

A beautiful children's fairy tale with a moral.
 
But I like it with the beautiful atmosphere and style of the USSR of the mid-60s. A great time of romance.

So...

"The Tale of Lost Time" is a film based on the fairy tale of the same name by Eugene Schwartz. Filmed in 1964. Director: Alexander Ptushko, a great director of fairy-tale films. This is the only film by Alexander Ptushko, shot on "modern" material.

The main character, third-grader Petya Zubov, is initially shown as a lazy person wasting time in vain. When he wakes up in the morning, before going to school, he decides to take a walk around the city, not afraid of being late. And at this time, four evil wizards, whose main goal in life is to do mischief to people, realize that they have already aged and can not go about their business as before. They decide to regain their youth. To do this, it is enough to find a few young idlers, collect the time they have wasted, make cakes with it and eat them.

The wizards went in search of it. They managed to find children who were wasting their time in vain (among them was Petya Zubov), and collect their lost time in bags. After that, the children instantly aged. And the wizards made tortillas out of flour, to which they added the collected time. However, they ate more than they should, as a result of which they turned into children.

Here's the plot of the story.

"The Box with the Secret" (1976) is a Soviet hand-drawn cartoon directed by Valery Ugarov, a mini-opera based on the fairy tale by Vladimir Odoevsky "The Town in the Snuffbox".

"The town in the Snuffbox" is a fairy tale in which the device of the music box ("snuffbox") is told in a fairy-tale form.



In the film adaptation, the original motif of "cognition" fades into the background, giving way to music, dynamics, and a kaleidoscope of color. The film has an incredible number of characters, which grows from frame to frame. By the end, the pace of the story accelerates, the music gets louder, the tension reaches its highest point — and all this in order to stop, collapse and freeze forever.
