In a Russia where fear has become the everyday currency, Stalin and Beria are the two double acts to end them all. With the Kremlin as their stage and the Politburo as their stooges, Stalin signs death warrants while Beria chases women. United by their Georgian heritage and moral depravity, they trust each other only as much as they have to. A humorous look at Stalin, dictator and family man. From the short stories of Yuri Korotkov.
I had high hopes of an entertaining comedy with perhaps some good social commentary as well. Unfortunately, from the start the dialogue was almost entirely unintelligible, and there was no subtitles option. I watched for about 10 minutes, caught very little of what was said, and of the little I followed the comedy appeared pretty lame. Also the general look of the production was one of a cheaply made tv sitcom. So 10 minutes, that was it, back it went.
Admittedly this might (though I doubt it) be a 3 or 4 star film if you could understand what was said, and, if your ears are better than mine, maybe you can. But there is definitely nothing about this film I can recommend.
