Wonderfully Bizarre
11 July 2000 | by (Los Angeles, USA) – See all my reviews

When this movie was originally released, I was still living in the former USSR and went to see it in the theater. I was about 15 years old and didn't understand much, but it was so beautifully absurd, bizarre and hilarious that I couldn't help but love it. I still do. Sergei Soloviev used the language of Russian counter-culture to present a mythological vision of his country and his own surroundings. Everything is taking place in an old apartment on Arbat street, which is continuously being infested with all sorts of outrageous characters (and sometimes even historical figures) who, on the course of their bizarre appearances, make numerous comments on various Russian cultural, historical and political happenings. Everything is, once again, deliciously bizarre, freaky and funny. This movie is definitely worth a try.
