Movie Info

In this comedy, grandmother (Yelena Bogdanova) is mostly paralyzed, and is unable to speak. She is waited on by her daughter Nina (Inna Churikova), a twice-divorced woman in her fifties, who responds reflexively to the bell that summons her. The daughter has two daughters of her own: Lidia (Svetlana Ryabova) is in her twenties, Natashya (Masha Goloubkina), Nina's child by another husband, is in her mid-teens. The three younger women conduct their lives and their love affairs under the silent but watchful eye of the older woman in a small Moscow apartment. On one disastrous evening, Nina's newest boyfriend Evgeny meets her two former husbands, the older granddaughter's new boyfriend proves to be virtually spineless, and the youngest granddaughter announces her pregnancy just before her loutish young boyfriend Misha drunkenly crashes the party. After all the men leave and the agitation they brought with them dissipates, the three younger women are calmly discussing Natashya's options when they hear singing coming from grandmother's alcove. An accidental blow to the head has restored her faculties. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Rebro Adama (Adam's Rib)

a distinctly Russian film that carries itself more on implications and symbolism than the actual story. The dark comedy/family drama of three generations of dysfunctional Soviet women is, in my opinion, frightfully annoying and lacking in any real depth or purpose. when viewed as a subtly-crafted parable for the history of the Soviet Union, however, it becomes a much more lucid, thought-provoking film.

Never saw a reference to this film in any guide, anywhere; I was starting to doubt I had ever actually seen it. Very effective, affecting family dramedy.
