This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is a semi-depressing Russian budget movie.
Don't waste the 2 hours, as you won't get it back.

90% of the movie the people are silent, and nothing happens. That's because there is nothing to do in the plot. BTW, here's the plot: - a retired couple of an old dude-former banker and a lady-nurse, each have kids on a side from previous marriages. Neither of the kids is doing anything useful with their lives, but just want money from the banker. The banker reluctantly them some money, but is puzzled as to why the kids (who are pushing 30s) won't start working themselves. The nurse's kid wants much more money for his own kid, but the banker is reluctant.

The nurse kills the banker by overdosing him with Viagra, and gives the money to her kid, who moves into the banker's apartment and slips in his bed.

The morale that the director wanted to convey - being a mother is more important than being a wife.

While the director is trying to portray the nurse as the caring mother, the truth is that she is the killer and is actually a bad character.

I'm just puzzled as to why other people gave positive reviews here - just wasted my 2 hours. Thank's God I watched the movie for free, otherwise I'd request my money back.

Time though - that I won't get back ..., unfortunately.
