The Irony of Fate

This movie is the on Russian TV every year for New Year's Eve just as "Miracle of 34th Street," or "It's a Wonderful Life" is in the US at Christmas. It's called "The Irony of Fate." I heard about it on NPR and found these youtube videos of it in two parts. It is my New Year's gift to you. I love this movie. I know you will too.

This film could not have been made in the US. It pokes fun at so much that is Russian but it's just subtle enough to make it past the Soviet censors. A great work of art and a fabulous entertainment.
