Editorial Reviews

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.

I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes offbeat comedy, although be warned it does have some adult content. I have watched it at least five times. There are some points in the movie that are just plain hilarious, like when Gorokhov is in the TV shop complaining about the fat-head on the screen. If you have seen the movie "Ivan Vasiliavich Changes Professions", AKA "Back to the Future" and liked it, you would probably like this movie too.

This is a quirky movie that's a little dated but still relevant and hysterical. A group of Russians that find a magical way from St. Petersburg to Paris. Highly recommended. Thanks to the seller for getting it to me on such short notice!

lovely and funny story, but there is a problem with the synchronity of sound and motion picture. If you fast forward or rewind, you risk loosing the synchronity and have to watch a scene with the text following later when another scene has started.

I, family and friends enjoyed this cult movie of greater than 10yrs old. Something refreshingly different with the clash of new and the old, East vs West.

Now I remember why I hadn't bought the DVD to replace VHS tape of this! My husband adores this movie and drives everyone mad by playing it constantly like a young child and his favorite Disney movie!
