Birthday Girl


A lonely bank clerk orders a mail-order Russian bride via a web site. When she arrives, she is not all that her brochure claimed she was. However, they settle down, and things improve once they live out some of his kinky sexual fantasies. Things take a turn for the worse when her cousin and friend arrive, and one crime later, they are on the run...
American reviewers say that the plot took a wrong turn, and should have stuck to the offbeat romantic comedy aspect, instead of heading into chase territory.
