Trivia

Screenwriter Viktoriya Tokareva regrets that one scene couldn't be shot in the elevator of Rossiya Hotel because of a fire in the hotel. In the scene, two Japanese tourists were supposed to meet Rubik and Mimino in the elevator and one of them would say to the other, "Those Russians look so much like one another!" See more »

improbable events, realistic characters
7 November 1998 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

To enjoy you must not only know Russian well, but the reality of the USSR in late 70s. The plot is driven by highly unlikely events. However, the two principal characters are believable and recognizable, their irrational actions motivated, the dialog and expressions are trend setting, the actors at their best.
