Adequacy is relative. Vitalik, the main character of the movie, seems to be pretty normal. With a respectable office job, a comfy little dwelling and a personal couch doctor, Vitalik looks as adequate as a human can possibly be. Wait till he drinks and drives himself into depression, and after that falls in love with an under-age girl living next door. Whos adequate now? Written by Mikelq

Trivia

According to Ingrid Olerinskaya who played her first role in this film, she got her part by accident. She was walking in the center of Moscow when a girl who proved to be an assistant of director Roman Karimov came up and talked to her and proposed that Ingrid should take part in the casting for the lead role. Ingrid didn't believe it at first but three days later she received a call from the assistant who invited her to the first round of the casting and sent her lines for the casting. Ingrid got through four casting rounds to get the part. As of January 2011, she is not yet a theatrical school student but is eager to become one. See more »

Cheeky, funny, touching. A very good bittersweet comedy
24 October 2017 | by cat-that-goes-by-himselfSee all my reviews

I just spent 90 pleasant minutes watching this movie.

The characters are extremely likable, well fleshed out in several funny scenes, and the plot manages to go from silly and cheeky to somewhat more serious in the end without sounding contrived or heavy.

It somewhat reminded me of American movies of the 80' like "The unbelievable truth" or "Bagdad café". Well above your average Russian comedy, and very well made for an ultra low budget movie.
