Review

Zhenya and Anya are the perfect couple. They are in love with each other and their wedding is planned for the closest future. There is just a small problem: Anya is a pastry chef and she loves to eat. This, of course, affects her weight. But Zhenya does not like plump girls, and he decides that Anya is not the right choice for him.

Everything begins with this seemingly tragedy. Anya is trying to lose weight, but not everything is so simple: after all, for this you need to deal not only with excess weight, but with psychological issues. Anya has to find out what caused the emptiness inside her, which she unsuccessfully tries to fill with cakes. In the process of struggling with herself, she meets the good-natured and always positive-minded Kolya, and this meeting teaches her to accept herself.

“I'm Losing Weight” is not just a comedy about trying to lose weight. This is a film about the search for the causes of psychological emptiness, the emptiness that accompanies us all at some time. And of course, this is a movie about searching for a sense of life. But these serious messages don't make the comedy less funny. On the contrary, humor is subtly combined with the deepest psychological problems, and in the end, as is customary for this genre, everything is solved in the best way for the main characters.

Review

You probably remembered the classic Soviet film with the same name. The modern "Foundling" history repeats the events described in the Soviet classic movie. A five-year-old girl is lost on the streets of Moscow. Although modern stone jungles are far from safe, a kind and gullible child is unaware of this. The metropolis becomes a kind of playground for an inquisitive girl. In search of parents, the girl meets a variety of people, and she makes each of them kinder.

This is a wonderful comedy remade in a modern way, suitable for viewing with children.
