An unimaginable triangle.
23 December 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

I've read many reviews about this film, and most of them tell about the messy beginning of this film (which involves the diamond, and so on...). But the real point of this film is the unimaginable triangle of the three twin brothers, where each one of them was grown in a different environment (Garkalin plays all the three brothers). It actually makes one of them think that he is "russian", another one think that he is a "jew", and the third one is "gypsy" (through the film it turns out that among their parents and grand parents there are all sorts of people). When each of these characters appear, he dislikes at least one of the other types, and it turns into a triangle where the "russian" guy dislikes Jews, the "jewish" gut dislikes gypsies, and the "gypsy" guy dislikes Russians (as well as anyone who discriminates gypsies). But then they begin appearing each one in other's life, and also being told about their parents, what eventually makes them even love each other. A great comedy scenario and acting makes this unbelievable story into a great comedy film.
