What movies should be about
9 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie shows the interconnecting life's of different people just before the New Year in different parts of Russia, which is by the way the most important holiday in Russia. "Yolki" which translates into Christmas tree is film that is all about human kindness and the link that we all share to one another no matter how far away we may be. It is attracted by its kind and eternal values like love, friendship, compassion, which works surprisingly well.

We get excited, we laugh and sometimes we feel for the characters, and its great combination of comedy and drama. All actors played their parts quite well. Product placement is not overly annoying as in other Russian movies. The only minus (small) was that movie was quite short Apart from that it is great family movie. It has brilliant acting, great story and very Christmas feel and joy to it.
