III. Read, translate and reproduce the dialogue:

Voronin: Did you watch the news programme on television yesterday, Mr Blake?

Mr Blake: No, my wife and I went to the cinema last night.

Voronin: What was on?

Mr Blake: We saw a new comedy at the Odeon. It started at 7 and lasted till 10, as it is a two-part film.

Voronin: Was the cinema full?

Mr Blake: Oh, yes. It's a very popular film. I recommend you to go and see it.

Voronin: Thank you, but I don't like comedies very much.

Mr Blake: What kind of films do you like?

Voronin: Well, I like good love stories or musicals. I never watch horror films or old Westerns. Actually, historical films in black and white or in colour are my favourite films. I also like detective films and thrillers.

Mr Blake: How about film versions of novels? Do you like them?

Voronin: Yes, if they are close to the original and if popu­lar actors star in them.
