"Two Merry Ganders" (1970), a fun, very early film by the director Leonid Nosyrev (click on the "nosyrev" tag below this post to see his other films that I've written about & translated).

"Think You're So Clever, Marty Gra?" (1985), directed by Robert Saakyants at Armenfilm studio. This is a very funny film (one that I love) that is made even better by the excellent, understated character acting. Monsieuricon acknowledges that the translation of "Maslenitsa" as "Mardi Gras" may be controversial, so he's provided a defense of himself over here. Personally, I thought this film was untranslatable in the first place, so I congratulate him.

"Vovka in the Never-Ever Tsardom" (1965), directed by Boris Stepantsev at Soyuzmultfilm. I haven't seen this film yet, so I can provide no comments... :)
