Ryazanov's masterpiece
20 December 1999 | by (land of ripe tomatoes) – See all my reviews

A glance of post-soviet Russia with all it's tragedy, confusion, controvercy and comism. Tragic comism. One of Russia's most loved directors, Eldar Ryazanov, brings you the "great evil empire" at it's ruins, but not from the global and political point of view, but looks at it with the eyes of who that empire was initially built for: common people.

This film is a scream of a sore soul, torn by the generations of cruel system in a country whose people still managed to carry through their ability to love, no matter what.

Ryazanov's wonderful sence of humor makes us laugh with tears in our eyes and it feels like those tears can was away the bitterness and the pain. They don't make forgett, but we don't want to forget.
