Poor clerk in XIX Century Russia is looking for a rich bride. The problem is that rich brides are looking for rich husbands. Good performance by Vitsin and the entire cast.
The movie is an adaptation of Aleksandr Ostrovsky three satirical plays. To adapt them for the screen and make a movie was a long-time dream of the director Konstantin Voinov.
The main character - young clerk who was supposed to be 17 years old, was played by brilliant Georgy Vitsin, who at the time of filming was over 50!
The film is very light and playful, but never dumb, no unnecessary banana-peel jokes. It is a real "cure against the stress" and also another example of how a funny movie can also be a work of art.
