It's a story about a young woman, who has everything what others are only dreaming about: money, good looks and a peaceful marriage. But she's disappointed - life is boring for her. She can't find anything in common with her girl-friends form school-times, with her husbands colleagues nor with her husband, who's a rich civil servant/businessman. She's fed up of those selfish and stupid girls, who stick themselves to some old and fat rich businessman or politician. She hates grandiose parties, where people are gossiping. One day her husband goes to a trip.. she's left alone at home and decides to reconstruct her fireside. Her girl-friend recommends her a guy for that job..
Well, firstly I have to say, that I have seen many Russian films from the middle of 40 until the end of 70-ies, but only some films from the 90's, mostly document and non from the new, 21th century. So I was very curious about this film - Russian film of year 2002. The film takes place in Moscow, Russian capital. Even though the film action mostly takes place in one flat, we can see some nice views to Moscow also. So.. I didn't know WHAT to expect and I was nicely surprised. The idea of the film and the progress is quite unexcpectable and the end - totally out-of-a-blue. I would say that Yevgeni Sidikhin's (the guy who comes to reconstruct the fireplace) role was a little bit disturbing sometimes. Mostly I liked the film, especially the first part. Not one of my top-movies, not at all, but better than most of average romantic-action movies. PS! As far as I know it was the first film for the directors(Sergey Ginzburg, Aleksandr Strizhenov).
