we roared with laughter!
28 June 2006 | by Egle_BaeSee all my reviews

The story starts in a Siberia where world's biggest diamond was found. It is so valuable that it may not only pay off the enormous national debt, but also allow every Russian citizen to move to the Canary Islands. However, Mafia plans to steal the massive gem but a notorious thief, Vasia, ruins their plans. Mafia and militia begin chasing him, but soon Vasia learns that he has brothers as between the chase he runs into well known Jewish conductor and a gypsy baron who are triplet brothers. The film is very dynamic, funny and a pleasure to watch. You should know at least Russian to understand all the social satire in the film. We roared with laughter because the language is full of super phrases!
