Do you know that Crimean Roma were deported from the Crimea with Crimean Tatars and Crimean Germans in 1940s? Many of them died in Kazakhstan, Siberia and other places...

Now, you can find them in Moscow and many other Russian cities. Mainly, they dance, play music, hold little restaurants and little shops.

That's Lolo Ogly, his a musician and a student, studies to be a TV journalist. His name means "Blonde". I know that he isn't :)

His grandfather and grandmother, 1950s.

Lolo's sister Elina.

They are really crazy. Some of them have something comon with Kusturiza.

Here are some:

Love and doves

In a simple Russian village a simple Russian family lives: a father, Vasily Kuzyakin*, a mother, Nadya Kuzyakina*, and their three children: two girls of different ages and a teenage boy. Vasily loves pigeons. He has a dovecot in his yard and spends a lot of time and money for his pigeons, so that Nadya is very jealous.
Once Vasily gets a ticket to a sea health resort from his factory. There he meets a woman from his factory that distributes the tickets from factory, Raisa Zakharovna*. She'a also at a rest. She's a little crazy, she thinks and talks about mistycs and healthy things very much, she looks strange. Vasily doesn't understand her at all, but is very impressed. They begin to date, and after the resort Vasily goes with her, he doesn't even visit his family.
They live together, but Raisa Zakharovna goes to see Vasily's family. That's the most funny scene of the film, i think... I can't tell, you should see it by yourself :)

Nota bene: Firstly, Nadya doesn't know that the guest is Vasily's new woman.

And then the film goes more and more crazy and funny :) Sorry, it's in Russian, and I don't know if you understand more that a half. But you know, I like to watch films in kanguages I don't understand, that's an especial feeling. Just try.

One of characters, an old man, is an alcoholist and he says twice that somebody has died (first Vasily, then his wife) to receive some vodka. He's afraid of his wife very much because she's tired of his alcoholism and may beat him.


Others later :)

I had a traditional Russian dinner: borsch (a kind of beetroot soup), pancakes with salty salmon and sore cream and birch juice.

I wonder if in any other country people drink birch juice...

People of the world. You deceive! World mass media conduct propagation of a false information. Russia DID NOT ATTACK Georgia! 07.08.2008 at 22:00 Georgia has attacked South Ossetia. At 3:30 08.08.2008 tanks of the Georgian armies have entered into city Tskhinvali. Artillery bombardment all the day long proceeded, fights with use of tanks and heavy combat material, both against ossetic armies, and against peace inhabitants were conducted. 1400 civil people already were lost. The Russian peacemakers have arrived to South Ossetia in the evening 08.08.2008 for settlement of the conflict and prompting of the world in republic and protection of the Russian citizens living on territory of South Ossetia. Georgia has attacked South Ossetia on eve of Olympiad, it is top of cruelty and cynicism. Proofs and video-materials look on : http://www.1tvrus.com/
