Injured on the job Vasily Kuzyakin gets a ticket to the resort. There he meets femme fatale Raisa Zakharovna, and once under the charm, moves to live with her. Unfortunately, a new life is not all that sweet as dreamed hapless Vasily.
this is a very interesting movie with unexpected end.
It is an excellent movie. It had funny moments; interesting plot and the ending made me smile, for I loved the wit of this smart billiard player. The movie is about 2 friends who earn money in playing billiard. But, they decided to get involved in a very dangerous game, by going against Russian mafia. And, as we know, bad people do not easily let go of their money, so they make sure that the victory will be on their side. To win billiard competition, they wanted to injure the classical player. And they did injure the player who acquainted everyone as being that famous Classic (he is known by that nickname). You will enjoy it.
