A film that changed my life
2 April 2007 | by SpiritRCSee all my reviews

This is one of the best films I've ever watched. I like almost all Ryazanov's works, but this one has changed my life. Well, not directly mine, but my mother's. After watching this film, my mother finally decided that she can't suffer anymore from her husband, my father, and so she filed for divorce. That was a really wise decision, I must say! And now I'll try to explain what was the role of the film in her making such a decision.

In this film there is a song (soundtrack) sang by Lyudmila Gurchenko, who plays Vera in the film. The music is written by Andrey Petrov and the lyrics are by Eldar Ryazanov himself. I will try to do a translation of the lyrics for you to understand how this song affected a 34 year old woman with a 5 year old child:

We live like there is no hero, We stand like soldiers in a line. Don't be afraid to bet for zero And quickly overcome your life!

Remember us at the beginning? Today we try to never strive. Take smallest chance towards the winning And try to overcome your life!

Let streaks of gray be guests in your hair, It's never late to make a turn. Don't be afraid to bet all you have, And act like you have just reborn!

Whenever rain thrashes your suit's back Try to cheer up and feel alright The time has come to shuffle your pack And try to overcome the life!

Believe in dreams, believe in tales, Don't drag your things all 'round the place: You'll never take them into Hades, So better try and win the race!

Let there be no place for a sorrow When you can't beat your rival's card, You bet your life for the tomorrow - There is no win without a fight!
