Audience Reviews for Russian Doll

  • Sep 20, 2015
    For many of us Yanks there's little experience with the world of film from the land down under (unless a film breaks the ranks and becomes a international sensation), and that's why you mightn't've seen Hugo Weaving act like a regular guy in this Australian offering. He plays a wannabe writer who's unlucky in love until his best friend asks that he house his new girlfriend for a minute. Guess what happens next? In the meantime there's the gratuitous use of popular songs played over the usual montage of shots of the mismatched couple falling for each other that so overdone its overdone already. The twist here is that she's a Russian, and so the couple visit Russian restaurants and we get to see Weaving experience that, or they go to a Russian nightclub and try Russian dancing ... you get the picture. Natalia Novikova does the foreign "other" pretty well and Weaving plays "not a bad guy for a change". Its not as offensive as I described. I think.
