This film from the
former Soviet Republic focuses on Andrei, a polite and educated college professor who is

fact that he knows that it is his wife who deserves his love. This Soviet comedy,
scripted by popular playwright Alexander Volodin, is one of the most interesting Soviet
films of the last 20 years. Russian with English subtitles.
