A very funny dark comedy
10 July 2005 | by skywatcherSee all my reviews

Get ready to meet the 2 nicest hired assassins in history as you get to know "Bim" and "Bom". It's Lola's birthday and she gets the most unexpected visitors. 2 hit men that want to use her flat as a shooting point, and that will have to keep poor Lola as hostage during their stay. The movie then becomes a black comedy with the misadventures of Lola and the most polite hit men you are ever to meet. It's quite difficult to define the movie genre as I've never seen anything quite like it. It seems very reductive to catalog is with just one genre, but it's also quite hard to find an expression that describes this movie. It was my first experience with contemporary Russian cinema, and I must say I just loved it. I've watched this movie several times already and it keeps adding something new each time I watch it. A living proof of how to make a great movie with few actors. Strongly Recommended!
