Russian Dolls


aka: Les Poupées russes
France / UK 2005, 129 minutes
Dir. Cedric Klapisch
In French, English, Russian
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Comedy / Youth, Romance


Aroview: A sequel of substance to the pan-Euro comedy THE SPANISH APARTMENT, which will again strike an entertaining chord with the young globetrotting, media-savvy generation and those with a perennial liking for bittersweet romance.

The original film's attractive menage of twenty-somethings have now broached their thirties, and are scattered across Europe between Paris, London and Moscow. All converge for a brief reunion at a St. Petersburg wedding, framed by a lengthy train-journey by Romain Duris, pondering his stalled career as a soap-opera writer. Audrey Tautou also brings a cranky spark to proceedings, while the whole tale is permeated with the character's maturing of outlook, tinged with a melancholy acceptance of the 'way things work out'.
