Where they filmed "abroad" in Soviet cinema
Virtually all the scenes "abroad" Soviet filmmakers were shooting without leaving the country.
At present, an ordinary graduate of the directing department with sufficient funding can seamlessly remove his thesis project about Paris in the French capital, or to the country of the Rising Sun for the real frames for a film about samurai. However, only some 30-40 years ago, the Soviet filmmakers had to literally get out, thinking out how to stay in foreign streets. As Yalta, Riga, Transcaucasia became overseas decorations for domestic cinema - further in the material.
Even the film adaptation of the works of foreign authors were filmed in the Soviet Union.
The Soviet period in the history of many of the modern state is not only industrialization and collectivization, but also great achievements in art. Perhaps the most significant reservoir of cultural heritage has become a cinema. After the films of those years caused unimaginable excitement. Although the conditions in which Soviet filmmakers filmed their masterpieces, not to be envied, especially in the film adaptation of the works of foreign authors or conventional travel abroad.
The vast expanses of the vast country allows you to shoot nature anywhere in the world.
