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

A treat for HW fans
28 September 2003 | by (Berea, KY) – See all my reviews

Well, I was thoroughly pleased with "Russian Doll." Two main reasons: 1) Hugo Weaving (as Harvey) does a superb job as the disenchanted p.i. turned novelist, and 2) the plot was interestingly developed. There are a lot of good points to this movie. The most important is that it makes you laugh at all the right times. I watch this movie in the afternoon-time, not at night, because it's meant to be a fun, afternoon movie, not the main event for the night. (At night, you watch something like Lord of the Rings or Matrix to catch Mr. Weaving's fine acting.) Added bonus was David Wenham (Ethan), who I had never seen before, and he does a marvelous job with the character of Ethan, who is enduring an early mid-life crisis. (He's in LOTR- Faramir, you know.) So, all in all, I enjoyed this movie for what it was meant to be- a light-hearted romp to give you appreciation for your own life which should never be so complicated.
