When Arkady's car stalls on the bridge on the way back to Moscow, the wipers are still running. As Arkady repeatedly tries to re-start the car, we see the wipers still running at full speed. In real life, each time he tried to restart the car, the wipers would slow from the drain of battery power away from the wipers to the starter motor. See more »
I didn't have high expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. It's hard to write anything about this type of film without spoiling, but what I can say without telling too much about the plot is, that the film is a non-cliché film, which still is full of clichés (love scene being the biggest). Filming locations are good, though "Moscow" (Helsinki) is a bit too similar to Stockholm.
The movie may be a bit too long for the American taste, but for more European film taste the length was just perfect. The end was so complicated, that even Agatha Christie would have been proud. The final solution between the main characters was completely different from what I expected, and definitely was that cherry for the cake.
