Naive old comedy, 18 September 2006
Author: Oleg Sinitsin from United States

This naive old comedy is a landmark of Russian cinema. The humor is mostly Charlie Chaplin style (cake in the face etc.), however many verbal jokes from this comedy have made it into everyday language. There are three novels in this movie: one about a convict doing community service hand by hand with a student with orthogonal morale, another about college students cheating, and the last one about a trio of junks (the famous Russian comedians Nikulin, Vitsin, and Morgunov) staging a burglary to cover the real one.

I would like to invite visitors to see pictures from the movie and watch a detailed trailer at Those who read Russian can find more materials useful: reviews, actor biographies, articles, etc.
