Say It in Russian Reviews
(I heard, from the Manager, that this fest is running at sixty theaters across whatever part of the country Carmike covers, by the way)
Anyhow, FIVE BUCKS for these films- less than the popcorn costs, so I gambled that five bucks and caught a classy indie called SAY IT IN RUSSIAN.
Very entertaining mix of romance and action with stunning cinematography that captures both the real Paris and the real Moscow.
For those that enjoy fare like the Stanley Donen/ Cary Grant CHARADE (easily viewed on AMC or TCM), I would definitely recommend seeing SAY IT IN RUSSIAN.
Not sure what the story is on this film, as I cannot find too many reviews online.
Is it going to be released elsewhere or was this screening it? It would be shame if this fun, "classically-stylized film" were going straight to video- can anyone contribute?
Defntiely a rainy evening well-spent for us!
I saw this indy film at the Venice Beach Film Festival. Not only does it look like a big film, it sounds like one too wtih a beautiful orchestral score. Kudos to the filmmakers for finally making an independent film that looks like a real movie and a minimal of blood and guts. Just enough action to keep you going, but doesn't detract from the story. A romance film, but not a chick's movie, it has something for the guys and the girls too. Veteran character actor Rade Serbedzija shined as usual, but the surprise in this film were Steven Brand and Agata Gotova, two newcomers who I'm sure we will see a lot of in the future.
