Unfunny comedy with a lot of static set ups, not much camera movement, and most of the scenes take place indoors in formal settings with motionless characters.

One of those welcome visitors, a movie that turns out to be much more than we expected.

[Koshashvili] sometimes drags [the ideas] out (the film needs tightening), but they're worth considering all the same.
