Moscow, our days. The city of big money and passion, magnificent women and wealthy men, social events and dangerous intrigues. Here, beautiful girls dream to get into the world of glamor, flowing silks and sparkling jewels, and the main social matchmaker cleverly attaches them to safe hands. Dasha, an art historian from the provinces, who arrived in the capital, dreams of a new, better life, but a mysterious and cruel incident will change everything.
This is a great story about power, money, corruption, scheming and lust. Everyone seems to have affairs and one sees much naked skin. At the same time the characters are believable and sympathetic. It is also a tale about love and the longing to belong. The motto seems to be money is sexy. At the core of season one is an unresolved murder. The story draws one in as the dialogue is witty and the characters interesting. The setting could be anywhere as its likely a universal tale except the (police) corruption. Its nice to see russian style interior design and nice shots of moscow. The acting is good and one sees fresh faces apart from Hollywood typecasting. There is not just one main character but several and also the side characters are interesting. Its a great ensemble. With its lusty scenes it reminds me of season 1 of the girlfriend experience. The one thing i dont like are the many english songs at least in the german dubbed version. I would like more russian songs or some more modern electronic music.
