The Wedding

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

A young, sexy woman returns to her impoverished mining village and proposes to her childhood sweetheart. He accepts, but his folks reckon her a slut (she left their son for a Moscow modelling career), and her big-cheese former sugar daddy will do anything - with the inevitable help of a self-seeking local police chief - to get her back, even, of course, at the raucous reception. Oh, those boisterous Russian comedies which evoke society's foibles through a micro-cosmic social gathering! Lounguine proffers every cliché in the book, sentimental ending included; sloppily overactive hand-held camera notwithstanding, this could have been made years ago.
