"Nastya" is a very sweet romantic fairy-tale. The early 1990s in post-Soviet Russia were not easy - this was the time between the GKChP Communist plot of 1991 (which led to the ousting of Gorbachev, Yeltsin ascending to the top. dismantling of USSR) and the Yeltsin-Communist fights of the fall of 1993 (where the Russian army was shooting on the streets of Moscow). These were tough times, the economy was in disarray, crime was on the rise everywhere. People were struggling for survival every day. In these times, watching "Nastya" was like drinking a cup of nice jasmine tea while being in the gutter. It's a very nice movie, sweet and romantic. I recommend it to everybody.
