Storyline

The shy logistician of a German mail order company, Matthias Bleuel, is send to Kemerovo in Siberia from his Russia - sentimental boss to accomplish a German work flow system in the Russian subsidiary company. He says yes simply because he is too weak to say no. Siberia, of all places! Equipped with down coat and pepper spray Bleuel expects to face danger, snow and ice. But in the mystic summer landscape he soon falls in love with traditional singer Sajana and can't recognise himself any more. The donnish logistician becomes a hotspur who believes in ghosts! Stumbling at first, but more and more self confident he moves into a new world and puts everything on risk to win the love of Sajana - and to say goodbye to former Matthias Bleuel.

User Reviews

German exotica comedy.
10 May 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The German clothing supplier sends his distribution guy Kroll, now divorced from Katja Riemann, to streamline the company operation in Kemerovo in Siberia.

There Kroll finds the locals operating out of a market stall and he and the film are sidetracked, when he hears throat singer Men and follows her to her home community, shedding his hang ups in the process.

We get a gay translator, Agro ex-husbands, steam baths, a sanctified Balalaika and Shaman ceremonies

Handsome film which is unable to redeem it's central cliché, despite the talent and skill deployed.
