Trivia

It took Eldar Ryazanov and Alisa Freyndlikh quite a while to find costumes fitting Kalugina's character. They searched the wardrobes of Mosfilm Studios and found skirts and jackets, but still thought some detail was missing. Good luck helped them in the end, when cinematographer Vladimir Nakhabtsev brought his father's old glasses to the set, just in case. When Freyndlikh put them on, it was clear Kalugina's image was complete. See more »

Quotes

Kalugina: Well, how's the cat?
Novoseltsev: Better, she said.
Kalugina: Just so she said, didn't she?
Novoseltsev: Yes, she did.
Kalugina: Such a wonderful cat! The best cat in the world, isn't she?

Great
3 August 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the movies made by the best Soviet Director Eldar Ryazanov. The story is about the relationship between a boss (female) and a male worker in the Statistics Organization in Moscow. Unfortunately, this movie could be enjoyed by those who speak some Russian. There are a lot of jokes, which in my opinion are not easy to translate. Only those who know about life in Soviet Union and perhaps visited it (or have some friends over there) could thoroughly enjoy it. Many years later this movie remains one of the favourite movies in Former Soviet Union.
