It so happens that peaceful kindergarten teacher is incredibly similar to the terrible villain who stole the helmet of Alexander the Great. And villain's accomplices are unexpectedly similar to children - they also need love and care.
A kindergarten director Troshkin is a dead ringer for a criminal nicknamed "Docent" who stole the priceless headpiece of Alexander the Great during an archaeological expedition. But after militia "inputs" Troshkin into the criminal environment he has nothing left to do but to carefully play out the part of his "evil twin".Written by

"Dzhentlmeny udachi" is regarded as a masterpiece of Soviet cinema and is very popular in Russia to this day. Although it is widely believed that the film was directed by Leonid Gaidai who made many outstanding Soviet comedies, it was actually directed by Aleksandr Seryy, whose other four films were unsuccessful. However, it was co-written by Georgiy Daneliya, who became an iconic director himself. See more »
When they are playing in the snow in front of the dacha, the fake tattoos come off and smudges of ink are visible on the fake Docent's torso. None of the criminals seem to notice. See more »
Story is the classical doubleganger comedy . This time a kindergarten helper is used by the police to get stolen and hid a golden helmet back from some criminals.
I have watched old Russian comedies before and liked some a lot and liked others less. This did just not work for me. I did not find anything in the movie really funny. But it seems like a lot like it. Maybe the movie is also more fun for Russian people, But I guess sometimes comedies are also very individual what people like.
