Mazuersky's fable of culture collision and assimilation has a certain charm, largely due to the acting of the young Robin Williams as a Russian immigrant.

As a fish-out-of-water comedy-drama, it works well.

Moscow would be in a lot of trouble without a superbly sensitive portrayal by Robin Williams of a gentle Russian circus musician who makes a sudden decision to defect while visiting the US.

Where it scores so highly is not only in its ability to evoke Vladimir's astonishment at the bizarre, sometimes brutal texture of New York life, but also in the generosity it extends to the musician's sad predicament.

It made me feel good to be an American, and good that Vladimir Ivanoff was going to be one, too.

Essentially a vehicle for Williams to show off his manic shtick (and display the considerable acting skills that would later propel him into Oscar territory)...

Mr. Mazursky's fictional conceits do not do justice to Vladimir or to his situation, either in the Soviet Union or this country.

The first good look we got at Williams trying to broaden his horizons. Well done.
