A teachers' world is turned upside down when her husband, a successful headmaster, is caught embezzling from their own school.

Four parallel stories about a Russian and his daughter trying to get to his wife's Russian Pizza House in New York, but they are stranded in Copenhagen. A girl getting married. A man finding his brother and starting a new life in the city. Two men working at a bridge. And it's all happing the same night.Written by

Wikke and Rasmussen, creators of the original tv-shows "Robin Hat", "Tonny Toupé Show", "Sonny Soufflé Chok Show", "Ronnie Rosé Show" and "Søren Kierkegaard Road Show" have added another interesting title to their CV with their feature film debut "Russian Pizza Blues". It´s an enjoyable, benign mood piece which tells several stories of passengers on an airport bus in Copenhagen. Great atmosphere and quotable dialogue make up for occasional amateurish performances and certain heavy-handed action or suspense scenes (the post office robbery being the worst offender). A distant cousin to the films of the Kaurismäki brothers and Jarmusch´s "Night on Earth", this is highly watchable, but not for all tastes.
Look for cameos from producer Peter Aalbæk Jensen as a seedy motel receptionist, magician Paul Arland as a cardplayer, and painter Mikael Kvium as a drunk stag party guest.
