A Christmass movie a la russe :), 3 December 2007
Author: alexco37 from Canada
One of the best Russian movies I've ever watched ( along with "Burnt by
the sun", "Checkpoint", "Coocoo" etc). I'm very grateful to my friends
who recommended this movie. Being from Quebec I found the plot quite
familiar to myself, my background. The countryside characters, alcohol,
Russian winter are quite similar to my native town. A Beautiful Girl
came to the little town with a unclear mission and quickly felt in love
with the most strange garbage man in the World. He's well dressed,
intelligent, she felt puzzled and what else could attract a girl
corrupted by the Big Town?
Good music, good acting, beautiful woman - what else do we need? 9/10.

Cold Nights. Chilly Mornings. And Olmeca IS NOT tequila!, 7 July 2004
Author: exciter-2 from LA, CA
Sad. Very sad. Depressing. Plot thins as it progresses. In fact - I am still under impression - that moviemakers of that flick sort of decided to depress the viewers on purpose. Every shot int the movie seems to serve that particular purpose! Rather successfully - I might add! In all fairness - some bits of sadness were done artistically. But - action scenes - lack action. Fun scenes - lack fun. And love scenes... yeah! Lack love! AT ALL! And "we" know that leading players CAN act! "We" have seen it! So - who's fault is it then? The movie does show some trace of study of provincial characters of rural Russia. But not deep, not enough and simply not catchy. I did not feel it, at all. I wish I did though...
