YES!

72 episodes in, and Anna finally admitted she loves Vladimir back. Well, she didn’t say ILY, but I think when the lady in question:

a. tells the guy things like ‘The most important thing is I am home [his, btw]. And you are near.’
b. Continues by staring at him with her anime eyes, touching his cheek and repeating things like ‘I have never felt so good, never’ when he is sitting up there, a few inches away and is staring at her.
c. There is prolonged kissing

I consider her at least mildly interested :D

So, basically, it’s clear if you are hot and angsty and rescue the heroine repeatedly, she will love you back :D

Of course, in order to get to that point, Anna had proven that she has no brains at all*, but hey, I don’t think Vladimir loves her for her mind :D

rambling on heroine's dimness and other things )

Ooooh, and here is the vid of the scene, with my translations.



Translations behind cut )

Of course, seeing that there are almost 50 eps left, I can only wait in giddy anticipation what kind of angst they will get to keep them apart for the duration :D

Not related to anything above, but this video of hot-dog eating contest between Kobayashi, a Japanese hotdog champion, and a bear, is something that can make anyone's year!

OMG!

I have a new favorite Bednaya Nastya scene. Seriously, I was literally making squealing noises at the TV. Good thing no one was around but the sexiness and the chemistry was EEEEEEE.

I have to admit, much as I currently hate Michael (he went from indifference to cold loathing, because of the way he treated Anna after finding out she went to Vladimir's bedroom, even if it was to save Michael. I love the scene afterwards, when Vladimir finds out about their break-up and tries to convince Michael Anna loves him, because he, unlike Michael, is grown-up).

But as I was saying, much as I hate Michael, I am immensely amused by the fact that Anna is hardly acting like a woman who lost her love. Though I don't know, maybe it's a normal reaction to engage in teasing flirtation with Vladimir and be all glowy. You tell me.

Anyway, here is the youtube scene (and my translations) of my new favorite. He is talking to her after finding out about the break-up (and he definitely knows that there is something to seize on, because she didn't tell him of it) and the mutual flirtiness and grinniness is INSANE. And the almost kiss? *dead*

dangermousie: (Lives of Others by alexandral)
I am referring, of course, to my new and amusing addition to the roster of things [livejournal.com profile] dangermousie-watches-and-writes-about, a.k.a. Bednaya Nastya. BN is a Russian telenovela, and is not to be confused with Bednaya Liza, a famous short story by Nikolai Karamzin about a poor girl in love with a nobleman officer (unlike the heroine of the telonovela who ends up rich and married to her OTP, Liza drowns herself after being cast off by her boyfriend who marries a rich widow, a much more likely ending, IMO). I almost bet the name is sort of a riff on that. After all, this has to be the only tv program I've seen where the heroine daydreams of the hero while reciting bits from Griboyedov.. Points for that.

Anyway, BN is a ridiculously emo period telenovela, set in 1839 and follows our heroine, Anna, who is a talented singer and actress, and is very pretty in a very telenovela (make-up, froofy hair) kinda way. Anna is making quite a stir in St. Petersburg but she has *cue suspense music* a hideous secret. She is *cue suspense music* actually a serf.

Plot summary in which I do random kdrama comparisons )

There are gypsies, priests, Royal mistresses, swords, rescues from evil kidnappers, and God knows what else. It's cheesy, it has no intellectual value, and I love it. Maybe because I love romantic melodrama, or haughty fictional aristocrats, or shiny things. Naaaah, most likely it's the men.

Here are our leads:

Our heroine Anna is rocking the peasant chic. Circa 1960.



Our hero, Tuxedo Mask. Nah, it's actually angsty Vladimir:



And here are the rest:

People in scurmptious outfits behind the cut with a minor character primer )

And here are some stills. Hmmmm, will my reason for watching this be self-evident from them, I wonder.

Hot men, cool outfits, and yummy angst )

Oh, and because I would, here is another youtube scene (I think this is fairly late on). She asks him to take her with him:

Went with [livejournal.com profile] smartylibrarian and [livejournal.com profile] tatterpunk to see Chak De India today.

Wow.

WOW.

It's a story of a ragtag women's field hockey team and their haunted, stern coach.

I never thought I'd love it in a million years, as I hate sports movies, and this also had no love story whatsoever. But. BUT. OMG. It was amazing. I was hyper, I was cheering, I was applauding, and I cried when Shahrukh Khan cried. I am so in awe of the man, not just because of this being one of his best performances (and that's a high bar), or because he looked incredibly amazing, but because it was the most feminist, incredibly assertive (but not a bit shrilly) of women being equal to men in every way. He always makes feminist movies, doesn't he? I love him SO MUCH.

I am going to have a detailed write-up when I am more awake, but run, don't walk to see this.

I have also finished ep 8 of Why Why Love so expect caps and meta later.

And to finish it off, a daily dose of Russian emo drama :) Browsing youtube, I found out that Bednaya Nastya seems really popular. It has over 600 vids, and I found Finnish, Roumanian and Arabic subs clips on there (no English so far, no luck. Though as I said, if I find out I like it once my DVDs get here, I think it might be fun to sub, if I can find a timer as I have no idea how to time.)

I have been watching so many clips on youtube and I find it fun to post and translate them. Let's see if the urge continues, but for now there it is. I have no idea if clips I'll do are in any order, but when has it stopped me?

Now, as everyone knows, in addition to being drop-dead gorgeous and angsting beautifully, 19th century noblemen liked only one thing better than kissing th hands of the girls they are in love with. And what is that something? That's right, A DUEL. Bonus points if it's over a woman, and the guys fighting are former best friends. Hey, this worked on film since The Flesh and The Devil, and that was John Gilbert and friend, over Greta Garbo, all the way in the 1920s! (They get bonus points for the ice).

Anyway, our former two best friends, Vladimir and Michael, are about to shoot each other over our beauteous heroine Anna. One feels a certain amount of pity for both of them, especially our hero Vladimir, who seems mentally damaged, as Anna is his serf but instead of doing the thing I always understood 19th century Russian noblemen to do (i.e. if liking her, taking her against her will, and maybe giving her a house of her own if he feels nice. She should be thankful he didn't sell her!) he seems to express his feeling by falling madly in love and treating her like procelain and courting her and eventually (but not at this point) marrying her. Yeah, I like fairytales too.

Basically, hot guys fighting each other. Over love. What more do you need?

I have gone insane. I am staying past 3am, looking for shippy vids for a couple for which I haven't even seen the drama yet, Vladimir/Anna in Bednaya Nastya. OMG.

But they are gorgeous, and have chemistry, and grew up together and he was resentful because his dad liked her and not him, and she is a serf and he is a nobleman, so it can't be but he is mad for her and she isn't sure and OMG so much repression and passion and HOTNESS.

And if this wasn't enough, this clip killed me. This is the clip of our heroine going into hero's bedroom to prevent him from fighting duel with his best friend. Oddly, with Finnish subtitles. LOL, very self-sacrificial of her. Need to find hotties willing to fight duels for me and then sneak into their bedrooms :)



OMG, 'he is SO HOT' is the only coherent thought left to me.

In case you don't speak Finnish or Russian, the dialogue goes as follows:

My translations with commentaries :) )

Hell, I watch dramas from every other country, why not those in my native tongue?
