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 »
I could even cry when it ended. Even the songs are enough to get you hooked. It's one of those rare movies when you forget that you are actually watching a movie. It was the first time I see those actors and they were adorable, even that nosy secretary was wonderful. What can I say? Thank you, Ryazanov! What I don't understand is why IMDb is giving me such a hard time at my very first comment. I am not a movie critic. I just wanted to say that this film is simply beautiful and that's it. I am only sorry I don't know Russian to appreciate it fully, but anyway I know the sound of it and this is enough. It's good that these movies are rare because people should understand that it's not easy to make good movies.
