1) I finally finished the terrible book yesterday. The book is terrible because:
a) the translator has translated all the person's first names. He has written Czech Julián, not French Julien and so on. I don't like it. The book is French, the protgonists are French hence their names should be French too,
b) the story is OK but the book is too wordy. And the wordy books are hardly readable,
c) the protagonist Julien is silly but also single-minded, politic and he has an inferiority complex. This is a terrible combination.
2) Karel found a Russian shop in Brno yesterday. There are Russian vodka, candies, books, music and movies on DVD - with region code 2 in the shop. He bought a whole series of Nu pogodi! for my mother because she likes this popular Soviet animated series a lot.
I bought one DVD with these Russian movies:
The Sovereign's Servant [IMDB] [trailer] [web]
The Rider Named Death [IMDB]
The Barber of Siberia [IMDB] [trailer] [web]
Pushkin: The Last Duel [IMDB] [trailer]
The Fall of the Empire [IMDB] [trailer]
The State Counsellor [IMDB] [trailer] [web]
Turkish Gambit [IMDB] [trailer] [web]
Azazel [IMDB] [trailer]!
Because there are 8 movies in one [even double sided] DVD, the movies have low quality and they are without dubbing and titles. Nevermind. The important thing is I don't have to try to find a solution with my Russian DVD Azazel with region code 5.
PS: The main reason why the long picture collection is here is that I like to make pictures collection.
