...simply wonderful Contains Spoiler
12 November 2004 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

First of all I was very sad to see there have been no comments on this movie! "Devchata" is classics now and perhaps one of the best movies with Rumyantseva and Ribnikov. The movie is made in good old Russian times therefore deeply reflecting the Soviet passion for work and relations between people. The main character, the cook, falls in love with a guy who is working and living in the same town/village. And not just a guy, but the best worker and indeed most popular one! However it turns out he made a bet that she would fall in love with him. Truly offended she breaks up with him. Nevertheless, he falls in love with her too and the movie has a happy ending. I cannot say it is just a love story, it is a movie that makes you laugh, has nice songs, beautiful scenery and great actors. Rybnikov has been one of the biggest stars in Russian cinema who passed away very tragically as many other famous and loved by people national actors. This movie worth seeing!!!!!!!
