Russian comes to US
10 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

+++Varakin is a father who comes to US to see his daughter whom he didn't meet for 4 years and is now 7. The girl lives with her mother in a luxurious home and with a well-to-do new father, apparently living American dream.

However, the girl seems unsatisfied and she gets very attached to the Russian man. The latter is handsome and genuine and plays guitar. But doesn't speak English.

There are some funny moments, as we expect(stereotypes or not), from the way Russians behave within American culture.

The little girl is precocious (maybe too smart for her age), cute and well acting.

The morale of the movie is that money and material comfort are not substitute for love.

--- I think many characters are illustrated with too a thick brush. The new parents are too materialistically blind and selfish. In his runaway, the fugitives are taken by a redneck truck driver, who is too coarse. The prison cop is too silent. Character development suffers.

At some point, I think while entering the library, one can see the shadow of the camera on wall.
