Russian to English: From an interview with a film director on the state of modern European cinema tastes General field: Art/Literary
Source text - Russian Их вообще интересуют американские темы, им приятно погружаться в мир фантазий и, особенно не задумываясь, забывать на какое-то время реальность, а потом выйти из кинотеатра и забыть про сам фильм.
Translation - English They like films about American subjects. They prefer to lose themselves in a fantasy world without having to think too hard. They want to forget reality for a spell, and then come out of the theatre and forget the film itself.
