Better watch film from 1975
6 January 2008 | by Chris_UASee all my reviews

I did not expect much of this film, because it is really difficult to make a good sequel. And indeed it turned out to be a poor copy of one of my favourite films "Ironiya sudby", which still remains one of the most popular New Year films on the territory of ex-USSR. The original plot was exploited, and no novelty was added. I bet not a single phrase or dialogue will become so recognizable, as some phrases from the first movie. Instead of witty pretty characters from the old film we meet old tired people. The younger generation of actors, which appeared in the sequel, lacks the charm due to which the success of the first movie could be attributed. I even did not enjoy Konstantin Khabensky, who remains one of my favourites in the modern Russian movies. Suddenly I did not recognize the lively young guy from "Uboynaya sila" whom I admired so much. My rating – 2/10. I don't recommend this movie to any fan of "Ironiya sudby". It is rather worth to watch the film from 1975 one more time, since even the knowledge of its end won't spoil the usual amusement.
