  1. The movie's steady attention to detail lends it a texture rarely found in films about domestic life. Its eye and ear for the particular and for what is left unsaid in tense conversation is unerring.

    There are no big-name stars. Barbara Serafian, who is excellent, has a thin, eclectic resume. She looks a little like Frances McDormand.

    What's universally hilarious is the way the inhabitants of "Moscow" come so close to snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    Feels not only like a movie from another culture but from another world.
  7. 50
    This Belgian comedy suffers from the fact that its mismatched lovers are so consistently unpleasant; it catches fire only in the scenes between the mother and the daughter.
