Cute Velikanova and funny Kharlamov!
28 September 2016 | by antkaravaySee all my reviews

That's very interesting film. Cheerful, with an unusual story. There is a lot of obscene jokes, but it's OK, it must be funny! I like stand up comic Kharlamov. And like actress Elena Velikanova. Really pretty and talented girl. The actress plays mostly dramatic films and melodramas. Her participation in this comedy reveals a new way of her dowry. It helped the audience see new sides of the multifaceted actor's personality! Velikanova also skillfully plays comical role, as before, she played characters brimming of tragedy and psychological insight. Now Velikanova and Kharlamov look extremely plausibly and funny in love scene. Well done!
