Review: Spiritual movie that’s perfect for viewing in the company, and alone. Excellent black humor and comic characters, combined with the overall dark atmosphere and gravely glavgeroya create a sense of this British comedy. A clearly marked element treshovosti can safely discard all serious and just have fun. Although, there is a measure of dramatic moments, but they add contrast from intoxication.
The plot in films is not particularly important – is taken in some measure an absurd situation and bring it to a complete chaos. Adventures of an American thief in Russia, taking hostages, manyachnye descendants of Ivan the Terrible? Perfect! We must pay tribute to the creators: unexpected twists across.
