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?

The most favourite Soviet comedy
25 January 1999 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Oh, good old 70s... Oh, incredible Alysa Freindlich :))). An incredibly kind, cute and lyrical comedy, one of the most popular Soviet movies of all times.
