Great comedy, love the movie! If you are not Russian you will not get it.
If you are not familiar with Russian pop culture you will not get anything out of this movie besides grotesque scenes of action and bizarre dialog. In reality this movie pays a great homage to the old soviet spy movies. Especially the cult spy series "twelve moments of spring", from which it borrows most of the characters. It is also relentlessly pokes in the most satirical way at todays new Moscow corporate Russia, by presenting it in the form of the third Reich. This movie is comedy genius. Great selection of actors, with some Russian comedy heavy weights. I struggle to see how anyone non Russian would get what the movie is about. But if you watch it, don't judge it as it is not made for the Western audience.
