it is surely worth to have
3 December 2005 | by maethereaSee all my reviews

my expectations usually end with the disenchantment. but not that time. it is obligatory to watch if you have chosen another dimension of films and of living itself. brilliant and lively heart-rending, IMHO is one of the most excellent muratova's works. renata litvinova as usually - how to say it and not to repeat oneself, she acts herself with all of her soul - beautiful and originally glamorous. georgy deliev is to be one of the most fascinating thieves. they both make together the definition of love out of conventions. nina ruslanova and alla demidova are the second pair in this game. they are one of the most famous actresses in the USSR, former and rip, here playing two typically untypical soviet elderly women,dreaming to be loved and so defenseless in their lonely conditions. this is a drama, detective story without police, romance, comedy and some piano,as a lemon jelly for enjoying!
