Maybe, Ryazanov's best
1 May 2007 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

I've seen several of his films, from "Beware,the car" to recent "Silent abyss",but this is the only one film which made me not only laugh but also cry. This is a timeless story of love, maybe banal, but extremely sincerely told and performed.It will be very difficult to find such acting now in Hollywood films and in Europien "arthouse"films,as that of Leonid Filatov and Tatyana Dogileva. They seems to be utterly ordinary people whom we can see in any big city, but being so, they display us full range of emotions and feelings,and, to the end, even dignity of human being. The historical and social background is also interesting,as it is the time of hope and disappointment,the beginning of perestroika. But this film can be seen with laughter and tears without such context. This film evidenced that,melodrama,romantic comedy can be great work of art even today.
