Add a Summary

This is a cute and quirky movie that reminded me of Amelie in some ways. The heroine is very otherworldly and doesn't quite fit into the modern scene in Moscow. It has a rather shocking ending, but if you know the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, you'll find it makes sense.

В детстве Алиса жила на море. И была бы совершенно обыкновенным ребенком, если бы не обладала одним удивительным даром – исполнять желания. Повзрослев, она оказалась в Москве, где побывала телефонной трубкой, пивной кружкой, лунной девушкой, упала с моста, отпраздновала 18-летие, но главное - встретила ЕГО. Сможет ли Алиса исполнить свое собственное желание?

A must to see movie... irony and faith hand in hand with destiny. You can save somebody life, but who is going to save yours? In the end all that last is dust!
