Great New Year Movie
13 February 2012 | by eugedoSee all my reviews

This movie shows the interconnecting episodes of different people just before the New Year in different parts of Russia, which is by the way the most important holiday in Russia. "Yolki" attracts by its kind and sometimes a bit naive plot, on eternal values like love, friendship, compassion, which works surprisingly well.

We get excited, we laugh and sometimes we feel for the characters, and its great combination of comedy and drama. All actors played their parts quite well. Product placement is not overly annoying as in other Russian movies. The only minus (small) was that movie was quite short and thus episodes interconnection was done in haste. Apart from that it is great family movie.
