  1. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film Abdullajon

    Mocking the heavy-accent Russian speech from people of Soviet republics was a comedic staple in the USSR, self-ironically internalized by laughing bags, then replicated inside their communities by a peculiar, embarrassed (auto)censorship. First film which comes to mind is Gaidai’s smash hit Caucasian Kidnapping. That was considered gentle fun in the era of blithe & courageous self-criticism, taking offense disclosed
