Movie Info

Kerbayev (Assankul Kouttoubayev) is an old man who lives in one of the Asian republics (whose names generally end in "stan") of the Soviet empire. After the spring he has been tending is "improved" by a bunch of truck drivers, he leaves his rural home and travels to a Russian city far to the west, to stay with his daughter and son-in-law. In this comedy, his bumbling attempts to cope with the situation he finds himself in result in ever more absurd situations. When he inadvertently cuts off power and water to the apartment block he and his daughter live in, the whole complex is singled out for praise by the local state television station for its "conservation efforts." ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
