Russia Книга Мастеров (Book of Masters)



Quote:
Студия Disney представляет свой первый российский фильм для всей семьи. Это захватывающая история о всепобеждающей силе любви, в основу которой легли знакомые и любимые с детства русские сказки.

Миру грозит опасность. Скоро исполнится древнее пророчество и заточенная в башне Каменная Княжна (Ирина Апексимова) вырвется на свободу, чтобы с помощью своих злых чар обрести власть над миром. Волею случая, судьбы людей оказываются в руках Ивана (Максим Локтионов), которому предстоит пройти через множество испытаний. В его силах наделить Княжну волшебной властью и сделать владычицей земною, но он может и одолеть ее, чтобы спасти свою возлюбленную Катю (Мария Андреева). На пути к цели Ивана подстерегает множество опасностей и приключений, его ждут встречи с героями русских сказок Бабой Ягой (Лия Ахеджакова), Русалкой (Екатерина Вилкова), Кощеем Бессмертным (Гоша Куценко), и многими другими.

Неожиданные повороты сюжета, ирония, искрометные шутки и современные компьютерные спецэффекты не оставят равнодушными ни детей, ни взрослых и заставят Вас возвращаться к ней снова и снова.

2009 г., 101 мин., Россия.
Technical specifications are given as Region A/B/С, Russian DTS-HD MA 7.1 (2 358 kBit/s), Russian Dolby Digital 5.1 (448 kBit/s), MPEG-4 AVC, 2.35:1 (16:9), Russian/Ukrainian/Kazakh subtitles. Loaded with extras.

I've seen at least one source identify it as 1080i, but can't confirm. The lack of English subtitles is absolutely mystifying given the Disney source. Also note, market price is about 950 руб., so don't be tempted to overpay!

Unfortunately, you are right -- most films that are released on Blu-ray in Russia aren't English-friendly. There are a number of reasons for that, some pertaining to the local market's restrictions, others simply due to the fact that the rights owners simply have not realized yet that some of these domestic films could be sold overseas (Alexander immediately comes to mind). Hopefully, when Ruscico begin releasing in 2010 things would change.

That's fantastic news about Ruscico! I haven't been paying close attention to their output recently. Thanks Pro-B!

Is there an English-speaking website where the blu ray can be ordered?
Thank you!

I must assume you are trying to order this title for a friend, as it is not English-friendly.

Outside of eBay, the only Russian vendor that will ship outside the Russian Federation is Kniga.ru, and their site is not English-friendly. You would need to use a browser-translator like the Google Toolbar or Google's Chrome browser to make any sense of the site.

Thank you so much for your fast answer! I will have a look at the website, since it is not available on ebay. (There were DVDs of the movie, but not blu rays)

I could not find it. I don't know if it's still available. How is it possible to know if this is out of print or not? Kind regards

Yes, but I was only searching it on Ebay from time to time. It was not an intensive search ;-)
A member of the forum contacted me yesterday to sell it to me.
