Never give up on your dreams!
2 February 2020 | by boyar-jediSee all my reviews

"Marafon zhelaniy" is a wonderful romantic comedy. It motivates and teaches us how to reach our goals despite any difficulties and problems. It's quite fresh and extremely feminine.

The plot is pretty standard. The provincial girl Marina, who works in a beauty salon, desperately wants to get married but the circumstances are against. So she has two options - surrender the destiny and give up dreaming or fight for future. The girl chooses the second one and buys a ticket to Khanty-Mansiysk since her best friend Liza signed them up for a motivational seminar with some magic coach in lead. Here Marina's adventures start.

I liked the idea of one-location action, furthermore the location is an airport. It reminded me The Terminal by Spielberg a little bit. Though, Marina's adventures are a little bit different. During the film we saw almost all the parts of airport starting from runway and ending with toilet.

Humor and characters make the movie. All of characters are interesting and close-to-life. Aglaya Tarasova, performing Marina, is marvelous. You can't stop admiring her. She is smart, hard-working, determined and very lovely. And her dialect is her highlight. The cast is superb.

There are no dirty or super stupid gags, humor is exquisite and light, I read that actors improvised a lot during the shooting so lots of jokes were invented on the spot, plus comedy guru Gudkov wrote dialogs.

I would recommend to watch the comedy to all the girls with a good sense of humor. You'll definitely like it!
