Movie Info

In this comedy-fantasy a group of Russian eccentrics discover that they can go to Paris from their home in St. Petersburg by leaping through an apartment window. The first eccentric is Nikolay, an oddball teacher. Next is his rotund, crude neighbor Gorokhov and his family. One night Nikolay and Gorokhov climb through a hidden window to get on the roof. They get rip-roarin' drunk the destroy the studio apartment of Nicole, an artist. It is only in the morning that they realize that they were actually in Paris. Soon Gorokhov's whole family is going to Paris where they loot and bring back Western goods into Russia. It is Nicole's apartment they go to and she is going crazy by their repeated visits. She turns the tables and climbs through the window to their home. She is appalled by modern St. Petersburg with its violence, poverty, and political upheaval. She gets into trouble with the local police but is saved by Nikolay who convinces them that she is Edith Piaf on tour. Later Nikolay decides to take his students to Paris. Unfortunately, they don't want to leave and the window is going to close for the next 20 years. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Window To Paris (Okno v Parizh)

I went to a tag-sale with my step-mom and half-sisters. I had already browsed the videos, but none attracted me. I still stood near them as one of my half-sisters came up, pulled out this movie, and said, "nope, this is unappropriate." I asked her why she thought that, because the front picture was a window, before which a woman stood holding a bunch of balloons. The back revealed nothing "unapproipriate", and apon seeing it was called a satire in the reviews (not that it is, really), I read the back... it seemed okay and worth my stepmom's dollar. ^___^ So we baught it and I watched it today. This movie is hillarious, the shooting is wonderful, and the plot intriguing. The jokes about Russians and the French, and the women-hating is not good- but this movie has some good messages and a bunch of kids doing some of the funniest dances I have ever seen.
