It's well known that many Western moviemakers respect and love foreign moviemakers and liberally borrow/steal/copy/homage ideas and scenes.
Anything from Tarantino and Wuxia movies, to Lucas and Kurosawa.
However, I couldn't find any instance of a Russian or Soviet moviemaker that was notably borrowed from.
Are there any?
A single notable example is enough for a yes answer, but for a no answer I'll need a link to a good research publication analyzing the topic.
