A must-see
25 March 2004 | by sunlionSee all my reviews

A must-see witty comedy, that has fun and philosophy in one. It is inspired by short stories of O`Henry, and has wonderful songs and song lyrics.I would compare the style of this film to Italian "Bluff", but only close. This movie is from a Golden Age of Soviet movies, when comedies were funny and poignant at the same time, and were made by talented and very wise people. Grittiness and stupidity were not cultivated and punches & swearwords were not the way to make people laugh. This movie tells jokes and makes people look at themselves and think. The plot is basically the adventures of two con-men, who are trying to make a living by small-scale swindling.

!!! Watch it with GOOD subtitles, if you don`t speak Russian. And if you don`t speak it and are watching the movie without subtitles, then don`t say that you did not like the movie, because "only some of the chasing was funny", like I found for some other excellent Soviet comedies here !
