finally...
3 January 2008 | by monixx3See all my reviews

If you liked the first movie you will definitely like this one... It's worth to be watched.. sure better after seeing the first part... some things never get old... this one won't also... :-) the old actors are all there... the mood is there... its funny.. its romantic.. music is fantastic.. it brings good and nice feelings.. memories.. really do not agree with the Canadian critic above that "If there is one lesson that could be drawn from this movie, it is this: do not touch old Soviet classics! Does anyone really think it is possible to produce a sequel to a movie thirty years after it came out on the screens? " sure its possible.. anything is possible..Come on man.. what do you know about the feeling of old soviet movies..? am not from Russia.. still.. if you know the language and are able to enjoy a good movie.. you will definitely enjoy this one..
