The Irony of Fate, or "Enjoy Your Bath"

1975 NR

In Moscow on New Year's Eve, four friends celebrate at the local bathhouse. The vodka flows as the men toast Yevgeny's (Andrei Myagkov) engagement. Later, amidst their boozy haze, they put him on a plane to Leningrad. After the plane lands, poor Yevgeny stumbles into what he thinks is his own home -- only to wind up being accused of adultery. Eldar Ryazanov directs and co-writes this classic Russian comedy.
