The editor of the BuzzFeed portal, Viktor Stepanov, asked his colleague, the editor of the German BuzzFeed, Karsten Schmehl, to watch a classic of Soviet cinema — the film "The Caucasian Captive, or the New Adventures of Shurik." The comedy was released 50 years ago, so something in it is probably incomprehensible to Russian children who were born in the Internet era.

The German had a lot of questions about the film. We have selected the best editor's comments from Berlin.

Ahahaha! I would never have thought that a sleeping bag is a great way to show a ridiculous death in a movie. Who needs Hollywood! Great job, Russian cinema!

Russia, thank you for a great movie! I liked all the jokes about alcohol and very cool tricks with flying and jumping. Unfortunately, I will no longer be able to sleep in sleeping bags and trust doctors. But most importantly, I did not know that you have such beautiful places and such nature! Maybe someone will invite me for a couple of toasts?
