CGiii Comment

Well, it had to happen - Russia has fallen into the American way of making really BAD gay rom-coms.

It's a typical love triangle - 2 men and a lady - the comedy comes from the different social status of the men (poor and rich = uncouth and couth).

Yes, it has all been done before and, no doubt, it will be done again.

If this is liberal Russia - let it stay in Russia, if anything, this is just an insult to those that have fought (and survived) for equality.

Who needs Russia to spout on about liberalism - according to this it okay to be bisexual...but not homosexual in modern Russia - well, screw Russia and this deplorable film.


The(ir) Blurb...

Vera and Tim are successful young professionals living fast-paced lives in ultra-modern Moscow. Their lives crackle with the capitalist energy of excess, anxiety, consumption, and stress- and they are in love. Everything changes one night when Tim accidentally drives his car into Uloomji, a young Kalmyk day worker. (The Kalmyks are a semi-nomadic people of Mongolian decent.) The two men begin a torrid affair that involves howling and knocking over a lot of furniture. Tim is attracted to Uloomji's exotic demeanor and liberated by his impulsiveness and lack of inhibition. To Uloomji, Tim embodies a kind of class and refinement he sees only in magazines. Vera struggles to comprehend their bond and her boyfriend's erratic behavior. She is dragged reluctantly into a bizarre love triangle. Before long, all three lives unravel, exemplified by a visit to a Buddhist healer, a three-way in the bathroom of a gay bar, a faked death and a kidnapping.
