Trivia

After the second season, Gulya Nizhinskaya and the rest of the crew had a conflict (although it is impossible to know its exact nature, because the story is told differently by the actress and the production crew), she left and Vika's friend was recast. But to avoid fans taking it badly, the newly-recast friend was made a new character. That's why in the beginning Vera is Vika's best friend, but when her other best friend Galya resurfaces, Vera is nowhere to be found. See more »

Amazingly Well Done!!!
20 February 2005 | by (Denver, Colorado) – See all my reviews

To be honest, I was more than a a bit skeptical when I found that Russia was doing a remake of the cult American sitcom "The Nanny." My skepticism turned for the worse when I discovered that Russia was just one of **3** (!) countries (the other two being Greece and Argentina) that were remaking the show! I just didn't realize how a distinctly American humor could translate into other countries and what actress could possibly have the gull to re-create the role Fran Drescher practically owned? But when I was at my local Russian video store, I saw that they had the entire first season of this Russian version, so I thought "what the heck" and rented it, only to be pleasantly surprised! "My Wonderful Nanny" (a rough translation of the title) turned out to be quite a treat! Anastasya Zavorotnyuk did a bang up job filling in Fran Drescher's shoes and proved to be a worthy successor to the wonderfully comic actress, along with bearing an uncanny resemblance to her American counterpart. One other actor worthy of mention is Boris Smolkin, who is absolutely amazing as the Butler and gives Daniel Davis a real run for his money. That's right. Smolkin turned out to be much better than Davis and it's no use arguing. Anyone who has seen both will agree. The rest of the cast are pretty good, giving their own little zest to the familiar characters. For example, the Maggie character is much more sympathetic than the bitchy character Nicole Tom portrayed and the Maxwell character is not as idiotically loud-mouthed as the American version's. Same can be said for the Sylvia character, played by the Russian superstar Lyubov Polishchuk and Olga Prokofieva is having a field day with the obnoxious character of Dzhanna, much like Lauren Lane did with her C.C.

All in all, an amazingly well crafted remake and highly recommended to "The Nanny" fanatics everywhere, as well as for a casual Russian viewer.
