Meanwhile, Katia, a Jewish woman from St. Petersburg, arrives in Sydney after answering an ad from an international matchmaking agency.

very true to life
12 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed the film, so true to life, the actors played the parts brilliantly. I have personally been involved in a situation which has some similarities and it was all so familiar. Congratulations to Stavros Kazantzidis.
