Perfect film!!!!!
30 September 2006 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

One of the most beautiful, funny and also romantic movies I've ever seen in my life! Very kind, very touching! Brilliant actors and a famous Russian director Georgy Danelia = 10 points out of 10! An interesting plot, an unexpected end of the movie. What is a "True Love"? Unselfishness, kindness, self-sacrifice... Will the true feelings after all be rewarded according to their deserts? I recommend this movie to everybody! Especially to watch it alone with a girlfriend. :) You wouldn't regret it! Russian cinematography is alive! :) It's sad nowadays we see only blood and murders on screens. The_Insider Moscow, Russia
