One of my most favorite
14 January 2002 | by (Nizhny Novgorod, Russia) – See all my reviews

This movie has always been a romantic inspiration to me. I understand, that for Western movie fans it must look too simple in terms of effects (if any :), but Mark Zakharov is a theatric director, so it is actually a movie PLAY, having a touch of theater.

Øýü afraid that the half of the original flavor will be devoured by any however good translation - humor, romance, smallest shades of mood or feelings. But if you will get into the movie, if you will find the right tune for it - you will discover a lot of wonderful things about yourself, about feelings...
