"An absolutely untypical story, which could only occur on the New Year night"- is the subtitle of Eldar Ryazanov’s most popular film. This is a lyrical comedy about four friends going to the sauna in Moscow, as their annual tradition was, and having so much "heat" that Andrey Myagkov’s character ends up at the same apartment as his, in the same street, with the same furniture, only in Leningrad, where he unexpectedly interferes with the life of its lady-owner (Barbara Brylska)…
This ironical love comedy with an unmistakable 70’s touch is nation’s absolute favourite and is annually broadcasted in Russia on December 31.
