A light Body-switch comedy from Moscow...
6 June 2007 | by L-MKSee all my reviews

Just watched this body switch comedy this morning and it made my day. I didn't expect much before watching it. But I've got to tell you that this film is really entertaining.

I happened to watch all 3 of Strizhnov film. And came to conclusion that this director did a decent job in portraying how new-new Russian middle class in Moscow would look like. And in this film he still stick to what he knows best.

Its lead star should get most of the praise here. Yuri Kutsenko and Kristina Obrakaite did a real great job. Without them it is hard to imagine how this film would look like. Kutsenko makes me boring every time he tried to repeat how bad Russian mafia could be (just watched "derzkiye dni" yesterday and "posledniy weekend" a couple of weeks ago). But with this role, he reminded me of Mel Gibson turning to be a comedian in "What Women Want". And Obrakaite also made a great return to the big screen. Together they provide a lot of chemistry this kinda film would need, revealed their talent of being comedian. Impressed! The plot may not new, dialog in the film is not that sharp. But if you';re looking for a light comedy, let Lyubov-Morkov make some laughs out of you.
