Cultural dynamics can be represented as the change of dominant myths, created by the culture within itself. At a certain stage of historical development of culture, a dominant idea appears that needs to be formalized and tried on up-to-date material. The mythological form creates tense experimental space, in which the idea is developed and riped to conscious establishment. Art can represent the disruptions of cultural consciousness and objective existence through new forms: images, symbols, simulacrums that are archetypes in specific cultural layers. Stable myth architectonics reflects the objectively existing style of the epoch, the spirit of the time, general cultural traditions. Every cultural type adds up modern, historical, national and fashionable components to the image structure. The trends mentioned are evident in artistic material, such as poetry, animated images, and cinema. The phenomenological approach serves as the methodological basis for the analysis of the sources identified and the definition of mythologemes. An epoch’s specific features, its cultural patterns can be seen in the cinema, influencing the transformation of historical memory in modern society through mythologemes. Within the communicative and cultural memory model, events happened 80-100 years before the reflexion moment make the strongest emotional impact. Therefore, the memory of the Russian citizens is influenced by historical films: Soviet (relevant) and modern (retrospective) representing such mythologemes as the enemy, the victory, the people, the motherland.
