A little girl is lost in Moscow and hits the road making fun (not intentionally) of everybody she meets. She'll be back home soon but she will change the life of at least one man forever. The movie has good music and an unforgettable mixture of annoying (a busy-body), ridiculous (a desperate couple), and sad (a lonely man) characters.
This film is to be on the IMDb top 250 list because it is humane, moral, and simple while being witty, dramatic, and excitingly funny (a treat for children/adults and a lesson for the grown-ups/kids). What is more, it has an extremely high "re-watch" potential. Let me point out the following. This movie is crafted on the same level as "City Lights". Coolness of some movies that are rated extremely high on IMDb may fade away with years, but humanity of stuff like this will stay. If you have any doubts, learn the Russian language, find this movie, and watch it. Or watch the version with subs.
To me it unquestionably deserves the highest mark. Thanks for attention.
