Movie Reviews

Autumn in Moscow
Lena Baranova | Moscow, Russia | 11/05/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is the movie about a man of thinks of himself as a victim of circumstances, but in fact his will is just not strong enough. He cannot make his own choise, and when the destiny decides for him - it turnes out to be the worst way out of the situation. It's a very thought-provoking film and it has a deep pshycological problem. A little bit depressing, though. But still good."
Great comedy!

"Definitely, one of the best movies (yeah, you can read the previous review - I've no idea what the fellow is talking about; you should to see the movie instead). Of course, it must be seen in Russian, subtitles NEVER give you a clue what's going on. Actually, I read a lot of books translated from Russian into English - so pathetic... The same for movies.
This is a comedy (THE comedy) about our life. Don't expect "sights of Leningrad"."
Autumn Marathon
Lena Baranova | 08/28/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Russian with English subtitles. The translator called it "a sad comedy." Works for me. A humorous look at adultery with a serious undertone about how indecisiveness might be more painful than just breaking somebody's heart outright. Hey, it's Russian. You know they can't do anything, not even slapstick, without literary undertones. That's why we love them. Great writing plus an extremely talented cast equals another keeper."
Good (but not in Spanish audio track)

"It is funny indeed. However, the Spanish audio track is no good, as they put the Spanish audio directly on top of the Russian audio, so you hear both, and it isn't dubbed -- one guy reads all the Spanish translation (so there is never any female voices in Spanish)."
