Eldar Ryazanov was very quick to choose Alisa Freyndlikh for the part of Kalugina. It was probably the first case in Soviet cinema when the arts council allowed Ryazanov to choose the actors he wanted. See more »

Great and enjoyable
28 April 2000 | by (Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

First Russian movie I have seen on the TV after a very long time. I saw a lot of serious historical Russian movies, so it was really a pleasant surprise for me. Great and enjoyable comedy, excellent actor performances. Simply loved it !!!
