A true genius looks bored even when endangered.
2 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

Genij (or Genius) is a russian comedy about an overly intelligent person trying to make his way in new after-communist Russia. Though it meant to be comedy (and it is), its filled with few moments that make hearts of veteran russian viewers ache for past times, as they see all too well in this movie how expensive their freedom is. But beyond that, its just a pleasant criminal comedy about charming super-intelligent gentleman who changed his now useless diploma of engineer for less legal methods of money making. Fooling around with police, small time crooks, freshly baked businessmen and even all-powerful mafia, the main character walks out unscathed and free - just like all fiction heroes do.
