Definitely Unique..
6 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am surprised that only 18 people (including myself) have rated this movie. I think someone needs to spread the word how wonderful this movie is and I guess I nominate myself. First of all this movie is very light; like angel cake, sweet and fluffy. Its shot in black and white(definitely makes it more special). If I could compare this movie I would say its similar to "Lyoghiy Par" but much funnier. The movie flows pretty well and I would say there isn't a single boring part. Its definitely Romantic Comedy with a twist. Its excellent both for young and older generation (Both Myself and my Mom love this movie). Its in my top 10 and I maybe it will be in yours also!

Our main character(Yuri Yakovlev - Ivan Vasilevich menyaet professiyu) works at a dry cleaner. He is embarrassed to talk about his job and tries to avoid the "job" question to his 2 newly arrived guests. He can only keep that up for a while before he decides to lie and tell them that he works with chemicals/solutions. He falls for the lady guest and begs his little but big hearted sister (Devchata) to go along with his lies. But not all is well as we find out that he is not the only one trying to impress with the big lie.

*Its been a while since I've seen this movie so forgive me if I'm a little off with the information. Tried my best!
