Movie Info

Two may be company, but three is more than anyone counted on in this outrageous comedy from Russia. Timofei (Evgeny Koryakovsky) is a successful advertising executive based in Moscow who is involved in a satisfying relationship with Vera (Lyubov Tolkalina), the host of a television news show; however, their relationship takes an unexpected turn when one night Timofei runs into Uloomji (Damir Badmaev), an attractive young man of Kalmyk descent, with his car. Timofei finds himself strongly attracted to Uloomji, and when Vera returns from a day at the television studio, she discovers the two men in bed together. While Vera is quite taken aback by this, her love for Timofei is strong enough that she's willing to share him with Uloomji, which leads to an increasingly strange series of sexual misadventures for the threesome. Matters become all the more confused when Uloomji's parents arrive in Moscow and are appalled by their son's unconventional lifestyle.

It's certainly no surprise that the best apology Timofei can manage for the heartbroken Vera involves repeating lines from a bad television soap opera.

The fault lies in an anemic script and misguided attempts by co-directors Olga Stolpovskaya and Dmitry Troitsky to seem hip by using lots of quick cuts.

The film comes off as little more than a shock-value exercise.

To say the epilogue strains credibility is a kindness. The filmmakers seem set on a happy ending, no matter what the story itself is telling them.

Though the progress of this ill-matched love triangle is fun to follow in its self-consciously wacky way, the movie's chief pleasures, at least to a Western eye, are anthropological.

A clumsily drawn, poorly acted love triangle.
