Storyline

A group of old friends have a tradition of going to a public bathing house on New Years eve. Incidentally, too much vodka and beer makes two of them unconscious. The problem is that one of them (Sasha) has to go to Leningrad but another one (Zhenya) goes. Zhenya wakes up at Leningrad airport. Believing that he is still in Moscow he takes a taxi and goes home. The street name, building and even apartment number, the way an apartment complex looks the same and the key coincide completely - just typical Soviet-type 'economy' architecture. Imagine the surprise of Nadya when she enters her apartment and finds a man without trousers in her bed. What's more - Nadya's fiancé also finds him there...

Trivia

For the part of Ippolit, Oleg Basilashvili was cast originally. However, due to obligations on the Leningrad stage he could not participate in the film. Yuriy Yakovlev was cast instead. However, you can see Basilashvili's photo when Nadya picks it up from the snow. See more »

Goofs

The service phone number on Nadya's elevator is 241-84-44 and has 7 digits. However, phone numbers in Leningrad had only 6 digits in 1975 (whereas Moscow numbers had 7), thus revealing that the shooting was actually done in Moscow instead of Leningrad. See more »

Russians show you their sense of humor and love
5 January 2004 | by (Shanghai China) – See all my reviews

I major in Russian. And my teacher showed the movie in class. I love it very much. Eldar Ryazanov is famous in China. We grow up watching his movies. This is absolutely one of his best. Eldar Ryazanov is good at making comedy-drama. This is a must-see if you are interested in the culture and art of Russia (USSR as well). This film is quite long but no boring at all. You would laugh and truly admire the acting skill of Andrei Myagkov when he is tearing up the photo of the fiance of the girl---Naja. He is the best ever actor I have ever seen. This film provided much space for him to show us his acting skill and he did it perfectly. Watch it and have fun = )
