An American diamond merchant travels to Russia to sell rare blue diamonds of questionable origin. As the deal begins to collapse he falls into an obsessive relationship with a Russian cafe owner in a small Siberian town. As their passion builds, so does the treacherous world of the diamond trade from which he is unable to extricate himself. Both collide as the American man desperately looks for escape in a world with no exit.
The vodka brand Sibirskaya Rosa ("Siberian Dew", with the slogan "Truly Russian. Crystal-clear vodka") that appears in shot several times does not exist in reality. See more »
Keanu Reeves states: "I packed for St. Petersburg." Meaning that he packed for warm weather. St. Petersburg Russia is slightly farther north than Juneau Alaska so if it is winter in Siberia it would most certainly also be winter in St. Petersburg (the average January temperature in St. Pete. is 22F) so the St. Petersburg scenes were very obviously filmed in summer (the trees are fully leafed out).

Lucas, it's Pyotr. You ready to get rich? You better be. There is one small thing I will need to tell you. Or maybe not so small. Maybe quite big in fact. So hurry, please. St. Petersburg is not the same without you. Dasvidaniya.

2 hours of my life that I'll never get back again.
This film can only be described as a badly executed porn film. The acting is awful. The plot has more holes in it than a strippers fishnet tights and for the first time ever I was rooting for Keanu to get his ass kicked. Please, for the love of god, do not waste your time watching this film.
