Storyline

Nikolai (played by Sergei Dontsov) has been fired from his job as a music teacher and has to live in the gym until he finds a place to stay. Finally, he gets a communal room in the apartment of Gorokhov (Victor Mikhalkov). The room's previous inhabitant, an old lady, has died a year ago, and yet her cat, Maxi, is still in the locked room, healthy and fat. Soon, Nikolai and his neighbours discover the mystery: there is a window to Paris in the room. That's when the comedy begins - will the Russians be able to cope with the temptation to profit from the discovery? Written by Dragomir R. Radev <radev@cs.columbia.edu>

Pure cinematic magic!
28 November 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I ran across this film recently on the Independent Film Channel ... by accident. But after watching only a few minutes, I was captivated by the plot, by the scenery, the music ... it was pure cinematic magic. Somewhat comedic and lighthearted in nature, it is also a telling drama of how some people can give way to excessive temptation and greed. It's a fascinating way to explore the human soul. I recommend it for anyone who loves a great flight of fantasy, particularly in the ever- increasingly-cynical 1990s.
