Well, actually there's a lot of really good Russian (Soviet) movies that was made in USSR, and it will takes too much time to write even just a list of them
What are you interested most of all?
Talking about Anton Chekhov, you can find a big list of movies based on his books, more than 200 at the moment. For instance I could recommend you one of them, "Мой ласковый и нежный зверь
" (1978), that based on "Драма на охоте
" story by Anton Chekhov.
