Simple, Genuine and Genius..


This movie (and S Legkim Parom) is my favourite Soviet film. I have watched it so many times, never tire of it.

I especially adore the humour..When Novoseltsev is trying to "uhazhivat za Mymroj". <3 Love!

What a cute and funny movie! Wish I knew some Russian though. I got the main idea from the English subtitles, but I know that some of the conversation was missing in the translation. The main characters were great and well acted.

This, Irony Of Fate and Love and Doves are three of the funniest, most poignant, melancholic and sublime films ever made in my opinion. I am from England and watching some many great Russian films over the years, I really should learn Russian as I appreciate much is lost in translation and cultural context, but even so, I think the mark of a truly great film is the feelings they trigger inside you and these three films create an abundance of emotions.

It is such a shame that relatively speaking, these films are hardly known in the English speaking world, I think if they were shown at the time they were made in the "west", the absurdity of a "cold war" with a people who basically saved us from becoming auxiliaries of the Third Reich would have been obvious.
