    • Synopsis
    • RUSSIAN DISCO is a "fish out of water" comedy about the adventures of Wladimir and his two friends, Mischa and Andrej, three young men from Moscow who come to Berlin in a lucky wave of emigration right after the fall of the Berlin wall. They take their chance looking for a better life and encounter all the strangeness of a new world with its spirit of the early nineties. Wladimir meets the most beautiful woman he has ever seen, Andrej has a gift for making money and Mischa for music. The day Wladimir finally manages to bring his parents to Berlin, he foolishly loses not only Olga, but his two friends as well. But in the end love and friendship wins and RUSSIAN DISCO is born. RUSSIAN DISCO is a modern fairy tale, a story of friendship, of love, of dreams and the search for happiness and its fulfilment. The film is based on the mega selling novel by Wladimir Kaminer.
