Storyline

Alex glides his mouse tenderly over online images of Vika. He has been smitten ever since he saw her with her friends and cannot get her out of his head. Now he has found Vika's profile online and has learned a lot about her. Vika has no idea about any of this. She is beyond Alex's reach because her school and block of flats are enemy territory for him. Alex nonetheless sneaks into a disco at her school and plucks up the courage to ask her to dance. Incensed by the intruder, the other boys give Alex a beating. Written by yusufpiskin

THE BEST OF EUROPEAN CINEMA
19 August 2020 | by richardkassirSee all my reviews

There's something about Russian films like Czech ones that makes them, more often than not, very watchable. What should have been my least favourite type of film, a teenage romance is, in this case, a funny and touching film that adults can enjoy. The story couldn't be simpler, or more overdone. A boy (Lyosha) falls for a girl (Vika) and struggles to get her attention. In this case these are working class kids not the over privileged middle class ones usually portrayed in this type of movie. Add to this a permanent state of hostility between his school and hers and the dysfunctional parents they both have. My favourite character is Lyosha's mother who was clearly a young teen when she became pregnant with Lyosha and is more childlike than her son.
