Modern Russian version of the Prince and the Pauper
27 August 2002 | by SCruzerSee all my reviews

Fearing for his life, a doctor replaces the still born grand daughter of a drunk, pistol wielding soviet general with one of two twin girls born at the same time to an impoverished artist. Fast forward a few years and the general is now the president of Russia. A twist of fate places the now streetwise twin raised by her mother and the pampered twin raised in the kremlin in the same holiday costume party. The two accidentally switch places, each lost in their new worlds and trying to get home. Meanwhile they gain new prospective on their lives and teach those around them a little bit about how the other half lives.

Very funny movie, I saw it in Russia in the summer of 2001, and even though my Russian is not very strong, I laughed the whole time.
