      Steve D Was thinking I would get a poor man's Ninotchka what we got was a miscast mess. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Compelling and interesting movie. Movies were so much better 50 years ago. People really acted. It wasn't about special effects or green screen magic. Great movie, great acting. A little gem Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member All great actors and actresses have some stinkers in the list of their work, this is one of those for Hopkins, Hawn and Holbrook. Goldie does the worst Russian accent ever. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member La película narra una historia romántica convencional, acerca de la clásica relación entre un hombre maduro y una carismática chica más joven. Esta última es Oktyabrina (Goldie Hawn), una irresistible chica rusa aficionada al baile y a enamorar hombres más viejos, para vivir a expensas de ellos. Su siguiente víctima es un periodista norteamericano, Joe (interpretado por Hal Brook), corresponsal en Moscú para un diario de Chicago. Su mejor amigo (Anthony Hopkins, en un papel secundario) le presenta a la chica, y casi al siguiente día esta se instala en casa de Joe, con todo y sus plantas. Más en Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member When a great actor performs, his performance may be so convincing that the audience may not recognize him. So it is with Anthony Hopkins and his character Kostya. His face is in front of you, but it's a few minutes before you realize it is Anthony Hopkins. For this performance alone you should watch the film. But, there's more... Goldie Hawn plays a serious character. Her eastern European accent is done well and her acting is impressive. The story begins with Joe (Hal Holbrook),a middle-aged journalist, who has won some literary awards and is currently working in Moscow for an American newspaper. His much missed ex-wife has recently died and there are a few things of hers in his apartment so he decides to sell them. He goes through Kostya, a local friend and informal broker, to sell her possessions. At this rummage sale is where our story gets moving. Oktyabrina (Goldie) is a young Russian woman who is in Moscow without papers. She is mysterious. She holds her friends at a distance while she flits around with her own mostly unknown agenda. Joe is immediately entranced. He finds out that a kindly Russian official (Gregoire Aslan) is seeing her. Kostya is spoken for, but he is Oktyabrina's friend. The characters are comic-like from time to time, but this is not a comedy. Though it ends sadly in a somewhat abrupt way, it is well worth watching. note: There is a Swedish dvd in widescreen. You must have a player capable of playing Region 2, PAL, discs of course. When you insert the disc into the player, pick a Scandinavian language to get to the main menu and then you can remove the subtitles Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
