"House of Fools"
Directed by Andrei Konchalovsky
A sweet, delusional mental patient falls in love with
a young soldier in this amusing romantic comedy set amidst the horrors of
war. Through a blend of harsh realism and gentle, dreamlike sequences,
director Konchalovsky touchingly follows the love that grows between Janna,
who is convinced that she is the fiancee of pop singer Bryan Adams, and
Ahmed, a Chechen soldier who has occupied her hospital. Features Bryan Adams
as himself. Winner of the Jury Grand Prize at the 2002 Venice Film Festival.
Russian with English subtitles. 108 minutes.
