Hilarious sting comedy
17 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

English title: "Roots".

4 out of 11 KINOTAVR-2005 awards.

Young con artist with rather nice personality gets in trouble gathering long lost foreign relatives together. Absolutely hilarious comedy, close in style to "12 chairs".

I would like to invite visitors to see pictures from the movie and watch a detailed trailer at RussArt.com.
