Enjoyable, but non-Russians may waste time
2 August 2004 | by (Boston, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie by accident in a Moscow theater and did not regret it one bit. It's funny, subtle, and well-acted, a rarity among the modern Russian films. Only later did I find out that Sorokin the co-writer of the movie is the famous controversial writer (whose books I happen to like as well), which really shows in the form of the good script and humor (none of his usual gross-out stuff, those who know what I mean need not worry. Well, almost.) Unfortunately for the non-Russian viewers, the most enjoyable moments are probably going to be lost in translation, because one has to have lived in the USSR to get the numerous inside jokes in the movie (think "South Park" shown to any non-American audience).
