An "Eccentric Comedy", about a person that is born fully grown, and with the ability to mimic anything he hears,reads, or sees. With Joanna Stingray and Nikita Vysotskii.
Very good film from Russia, that i picked up awhile ago. The only reason i got it was because i recognized the actors, Nikita Vysotskii (Vladimir Vysotskii's son) and Joanna Stingray(only know her because she was friends with Victor Tsoy). Anyways the plot is kind of simple to follow, and the jokes don't fall far behind, but still very funny. "Urod"(Vysotskii) is a baby that is born as a full grown adult (The mom just has a big stomach ). He has an uncanny ability to mimic anything he reads or sees, which is why the police think he might be dangerous (by this time he has escaped from the hospital) since he might read a book about nuclear bombs. So anything Urod will read or see he will mimic, and that is what the writers use to full effect and where most of the jokes are. Acting is top notch, because the actors make the eccentricities believable no matter how strange they would seem in the real world. Definitely recommended
