Good movie. It haunts you in a good way when it's over. It starts out as a typical romance film then turns into something special. I thought the lead actors where good and had chemistry. This is the kind of film you watch at night with someone special or a bowl of nacho's and salsa!:)

A man follows a group of chauvinistic men from Turkey to Kiev to celebrate his Bachelor party. He is engaged to a woman he barely even know. The group of men has a rather narrow view of women (There are two kinds of women). Dig that story about the Viking King who conquered Ukraine and hates ugly women. The man fell in love at first sight to a call woman. He was expecting a night of love-making, but instead he spent and evening and the following day with an adventure in Kiev with the woman of his dreams. Activities includes looking for the woman's grandmother through the subway system, spending the night in custody for a crime he did not commit, and so on and so forth. It was an experience they would never forget.

I think this may be a dramedy instant classic for me. The ending was a tough pill to swallow but its poignancy was fitting and made for a much more raw, humanistic ending than if it had been sugarcoated. Loved the Ukrainian setting and people. Great performances by the leads!

If this film were in English, most viewers would find it quite offensive. The basic message is that Turkish all men are at their core honorable and good, even when going off to foreign lands to engage the services of prostitutes, and all Ukrainian women, with the exception of a few saintly grandmothers, are whores. This film is so incredibly sexist (as well as badly written, shot and edited) that it's hard to believe that it found a distributor in the US, and that the state Ukrainian film board saw fit to help in its financing and production.
