"Window to Paris"
Directed by Yuri Mamin
inventive, wildly hilarious comedy from Yuri Mamin starts in St. Petersburg, where a
down-on-his-luck music teacher moves into a one-room apartment and finds that the cat of
the previous inhabitant, left locked in the room for a very long time, is inexplicably
healthy and fat, a mystery that is soon revealed as he disovers that the closet door opens
onto a window on the other side of which lies
Paris! Soon the denizens of the Russian
flat are busy transporting themselves (and all the goods they can find) over the Paris
rooftops into their St. Petersburg apartment. Window to Paris is a sharp, witty and
totally original satire. Russian with English subtitles.
