Hysterical. The pre-crisis (1998) city of Moscow at its best.
5 April 2003 | by (Moscow, Russia) – See all my reviews

This is simply the best Russian movie of the last decade. The plot is really irrelevant, although I wouldn't call it thin: gangsters try to recover money presumably stolen by a courier, who is dating two sisters and their mother (obvious reference to Chekov's `Three sisters', who dreamed of moving to Moscow). Now they do live in Moscow. and nothing changes for them!

There's fun and violence, and more fun. Most of the jokes and contextual and might not be readily understandable by non-Russian audience. Still, the movie is worth seeing just for the cinematography, light, act and entourage of the city now defunct (the crisis of 1998 destroyed the Moscow as shown in `Moskva'). The dialog is also brilliant, however I can't imagine it being adequately translated.

A must-see for anyone interested in the ways of modern Russia.
