For those who were born in the USSR
14 July 2015 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

This film indeed is a little gem of men's views on the world around them. But, as a Russian-speaking person born and living in Russia, i can't help thinking that What Men Talk About can hardly be as fulfilling for a foreigner as it is for people from ex-USSR. Yes, the general concept of the humor used here could be translated into other languages, but the cultural aspects of the interactions between people, the tiny insightful things put here and there all along the film - they are too rooted in the Soviet and post-Soviet culture to be adequately interpreted by those who haven't at least lived here for a while.

It's exactly the same as with any other film or TV show from any other country that's deeply connected with its culture or collective subconscious. For example, one needs to be an American or be in a tight connection with the American culture to enjoy The Daily Show or The Family Guy to the fullest. Yeah, that would still be fun if translated to another language, but without the deeper understanding of the cultural references you'll be like a guest on an inside joke party. Which means you would still probably enjoy it, just not as much as the rest of the guys.
