Soviet fairy tail
21 December 2007 | by realkiller-1See all my reviews

Personally, I thought that this movie will be а usual fake оf the first part. Thanks god that I was wrong! The second part has fanny dialogs, nice songs, good actors, New Year's magic and happy ending – all that what we liked so much in the firs part. I very much enjoyed the plot; It is closely connected with the first movie but is interesting and surprising. The atmosphere in the cinema during the film was fantastic – the move helped people to feel the beginning of the celebration.

I should recognize, that the film is close only to the Soviet spectator. Most people, not knowing Russian traditions simply will not understand details which are so important. The idea, the characters - all this strongly influences those to whom the concept of wide soul is close. Acting is great...the main hero is a real «nice very nice gay», which you will like and a girl in the movie is gorgeous!!! The film is worth seen: it will make you laugh at the beginning and cry at the end. Only one thing is not liked by me – it is the mixture of styles in camera work. Also advertising in the movie is too obvious and annoys.

Concerning everything, it is a great present for New Year!
