There is a special place in hell where they torture Hitler showing him Sarik Andreasian films
Modern Russian mainstream cinema is comparable with Bollywood. When they find they won't be able to sell the same trivial and vulgar stories once again, they steal or remake successful movies. And "Office Romance: Our Times" relates to the original Ryazanov film as the 1987 Indian "Superman" relates to the 1978 classic - "Superman: The Movie".
The worst part is - rewriting the very same script, replacing "dated" situations and dialogue with "modern" cliché and stereotypes, which is supposed to sound "cool" and "familiar" to the modern public. The acting is really terrible too. Yet, money keeps flowing to horribly untalented Sarik Andreasian and he makes 4-5 films a year.
Verdict - dangerous for your mental health. Though not as terrible as his other works.
