Young Siberian writer Volodya meets Kolya in the Moscow metro in his visit to a famous author. Volodya and Kolya's friend Sasha adventure their love interests in their own way, while Kolya sets out to help them.
Despite seeing this in the original (Russian) language, it's still a very funny touching film. Irina Seleznyova (see her in the Russian version of "Kreutzer Sonata")and Leonid Yarmolnik are perfect together. Both strike sparks from the moment they meet at Sheremetevo Airport. Their trip around Moscow and trial together is both entertaining and informative. Watching it helps anyone who hasn't been there understand why Moscow is one big village and the film itself is a welcome departure from the other violent Russian films like "Brat". 7.5/10
