Storyline

Harvey, a self-doubting private investigator, plans to marry his girlfriend until he is hired to solve an adultery case and discovers the adulterer is cheating with his fiancée. Lost and dejected, Harvey quits his job and wallows in booze and the occasional odd blind date. Meanwhile, Katia, a Jewish woman from St. Petersburg, arrives in Sydney after answering an ad from an international matchmaking agency. But instead of love, she finds her prospective groom dead on arrival. Stranded in a foreign city with no one to turn to, Katia meets Ethan, a married man and Harvey's best friend. Ethan is soon scheming to figure out a way to keep Katia in the country without his wife Miriam discovering the affair. Ethan comes up with the perfect solution: he offers Harvey enough money to start writing the novel he has always dreamed of, if he agrees to marry Katia. Harvey is appalled by the idea. Ethan's marriage had been his only example that love can faithfully exist. However, since he needs the ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Russian ruins
19 April 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Russian Doll looked good in the previews that is only where it looked good. Hugo Weaving and David Wenham lacked their usual charisma and depth of character. Katia was obnoxious and annoying. Ms. Horler was the only good thing about the movie she lead the cast through all the difficulties it faced in the script, she should have appeared more in the film, I was also disappointed that Laurie Foel was only in it for 1 minute. What it lacks Horler makes up for, but I wouldn't recommend this Australian film because it's a disaster.
