Trivia

Oleg Basilashvili didn't like the role of Samokhvalov at first. He wanted to play Novoseltsev and kept trying to convince Eldar Ryazanov he should be chosen for the role. However, Basilashvili admitted during production that Ryazanov distributed the roles correctly. See more »

Thank you, Ryazanov
13 April 2012 | by (Albania) – See all my reviews

Simple. Thank you, Ryazanov!

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.
