Get out your potatoes. Dust of the ushankas. Practice your metal work skill and learn to chant with your fellow proles. Because we’ve dragged out a movie from the land of Tetris. We jointly bring you Hitler’s Kaput!.
Weltall was curious as to what exactly passes for comedy in the land that gave us both Putin and Yakov Smirnoff. It’s set in World War II. Our protagonist is a Russian spy who’s part of the upper tier of the National Solcialists Super Secret club. He siphons off intel as the war winds down and gets sent a love interest because he’s in danger or because they need tits. There’s a fuck load of anachronisms for the sake of comedy. But the best has to be the Russian man covering “Oops I did it again” in English with an accent so thick that it can stir gazpacho.
