Reality series following the fast-paced comings and goings of eight larger-than-life men and women who live fully, love passionately and work hard as only they can in Brooklyn's historic Russian-American neighborhood, Brighton Beach.
Xavier is now thirty. No longer a student, he is not yet a well-balanced, fulfilled adult either. His career is unsatisfying: Far from being the renowned novelist he aimed to be he must be content with little jobs such as reporter or ghost writer. His greatest "achievement" in "literature" is his collaboration to the script of a corny TV soap! His sentimental life is not much better, rhythmed by one night stands and unfinished romances. It looks as if when he seduces a woman beautiful outside and inside such as Kassia or Wendy he can't keep them. Will he ever bring his life into focus?Written by

adventures. friendship. love/hate/words/choices/questions/meetings/a ballerina.another "L'Auberge espagnole". same Romain Duris. new versions of life lessons. in a single word, another chapter of an old story. not boring, not sensational, not interesting or strange. the image of Europe is more small. the feeling of Xavier are on top. and the result is not bad but the charm of first movie is enough. in this case, ambition to tell a profound tale is too much. complicated options, the life as storm , a nudity scene on street, in night, in desperate run, the mixture of a Russian character, the fight between past and present, all is a fragile huge construction. but the good intentions are almost perfect refuge. so, a nice movie. about friendship, love, choices, a wedding, few drops of feelings.
