Storyline

Vera and Tim are successful young professionals living fast-paced lives in ultra-modern Moscow. Their lives crackle with the capitalist energy of excess, anxiety, consumption, and stress- and they are in love. Everything changes one night when Tim accidentally drives his car into Uloomji, a young Kalmyk day worker. (The Kalmyks are a semi-nomadic people of Mongolian decent.) The two men begin a torrid affair that involves howling and knocking over a lot of furniture. Tim is attracted to Uloomji's exotic demeanor and liberated by his impulsiveness and lack of inhibition. To Uloomji, Tim embodies a kind of class and refinement he sees only in magazines. Vera struggles to comprehend their bond and her boyfriend's erratic behavior. She is dragged reluctantly into a bizarre love triangle. Before long, all three lives unravel, exemplified by a visit to a Buddhist healer, a three-way in the bathroom of a gay bar, a faked death and a kidnapping. Written by Sujit R. Varma

A film about love rather than just a gay film.
15 September 2005 | by wally-46See all my reviews

I believe reviewer Paul should watch the director and producer's comments. Sure, a poorly filmed piece by Hollywood standards but this is in Russia and it is groundbreaking for them. It's not just a film about homosexuals but rather love and everyone's right to seek it, find it and have it the way they want as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else. Uloomji has a chance meeting with Tim and you know that something unsaid has transpired between them. Along comes Vera to stir up the pot and the charisma of Uloomji affects her too. Three different people who manage to be oblivious to what others may think as they begin to work out their differences. Adding the other family conflicts added to the humor and suspense of how it will end and where the title comes from. I liked the film. It made me work some to watch subtitles and hear the Russian but the message came across.
