Meeting of the garage cooperative must exclude four own members because of a new highway's building. After the meeting it becomes clear that the exit door is closed by one of the members, who requires an equitable solution.
A very good cop tries to catch a very insidious and extremely clever serial car thief. The bitter irony is that the thief is not very clever, absolutely not insidious, and moreover - a virtuous person and his friend.
Fantastic Russian 'coming of age' film. A young girl is teased by her classmates (giving her the nickname 'Chuchelo', or 'Scarecrow') and she deals with it on her intelligence and wit. While this may sound grim (it is set in '80's Russia, after all), it is at times funny, weird and massively enjoyable. Very superior to many more popular American teenage films, is much more realistic and the script and acting sharper. A highly underrated gem - just try and find it!
