Very funny humor and satire on the Soviet Reality.
If You have a chance to see the movie - just do it! If You're looking for a way for enabling to see the impossible like too much possible without tricks with computerized effects, for doing great movie with a lot of meanings (needs to know and understand a bit the Socialist Soviet Reality) You can find all of that in that movie. But if You're looking just for fun and nothing more, see the movie and make for Yourself great relaxing evening.
