The basis of the recent romantic fantasy tape Dzhendubaeva Indar went to Sergey and Marina Dyachenko novel "Ritual". The film talked about the love of a noble princess and dragon-shifter, which is destined to kidnap and kill women.
The tape fell into the domestic box office and was not able to pay off even at the expense of the Chinese audience, while in China it has found many fans. But a commercial failure does not make the movie worse. It only shows that the film did not find its audience.

But if in the capitalist novel, the main characters are trying to enslave humanity (man-fish lets sinking ships, and its creator makes ominous ultimatums), then in the Soviet book Ichthyander - a virtuous character, and the villains are quite different, conservative people.

Of all the great films of Mark Zakharov "Kill the Dragon" is closest to the content of our hit parade. So he hit him and took pride of place. The painting is inspired by fantasy play by Eugene Schwartz "Dragon", in which the heroic knight discovers that the murder of the dragon is quite insufficient to save people from his power.

Can we call a picture of Andrei Tarkovsky's film adaptation of the successful? author of the novel "Solaris" Stanislaw Lem did not think so. He believed that the director too far departed from the philosophy of the book to the side close to him personally, judgment and experience. However, it is due to the fact that Tarkovsky missed "Solaris" by himself, he was able to create an exciting fi movie, which won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival and is considered one of the best film works of the genre. The "Solaris" describes the study sensible world, which reads the thoughts of earthlings and materialize their memories.
