Product Description

Product Description

Williams/Alonso ~ Moscow On The Hudson

Amazon.ca

Robin Williams in his fuzzy, sensitive mode with bittersweet touches plays a musician in a Russian circus who gets talked into defecting by a pal and does so (though the pal bails on him at the last minute)--in the middle of Bloomingdale's. A great concept, to be sure, but writer-director Paul Mazursky doesn't seem to know where to go from there. Williams winds up living in the same kind of poverty that he did in Russia, casting about for a way to make a living while both wallowing and drowning in the sudden tidal wave of freedom. Mazursky wants to make a point about how little we appreciate what we have, but he fails to entertain in the process--or at least to engage in a consistent way. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is not a great movie but definitely a sleeper. Robin Williams does a fine job as a jazz musician from Russia who deeply desires the freedom--and gets his chance--to play in America. The scene where he and his bandmates are being briefed by the KGB before traveling to New York is priceless, especially where the head agent pronounces Greenwich Village as "green-Vich Ill-yage". But the most priceless scene is where Robin Williams does defect in that greatest symbol of all American democracy and capitalism, Bloomingdales. From there, the movie teeter-totters between a comedy of cultures and some soppy sentimentality. Still, this is a movie well worth seeing, expecially for those of us who remember the dawning of glasnost

After visiting New York for the first time, I had to order this DVD. The film captures the experience I had in NY: Everyone was from someplace else! The hot dog vendors, the cab drivers, hotel staff, store personnel, waiters, carriage drivers, street performers. I loved the scene in the cafe: so-called American waitress, the lawyer from Puerto Rico (or Cuba?), the Asian and the Russians. This may seem like flag waving and some critics might nitpick, but the film truly captures the flavor of NY. Now, whenever I want to go back there again, I watch this film. All the cast was great, plenty of humor, a feel-good movie that celebrates America. Watch for the scene where Robin Williams is being followed.

The part in Moscow is plain stupid and too far from the reality. And using Russian with subtitles does not help, just hurts. Especially for somebody who knows Russian, because they speak Russian with terrible accents (which is not usual there). It's like judging on how to care for a cat by Garfield comics, just take out the humor.
New York part is hectic, but for a convinced Mid-North-westener there is nothing new in this statement, so it's probably realistic enough. Unfortunately, it's just not very interesting either.

The reviewer who mentioned the terrible accents I think didn't even realize that a lot of the people in this film are actually Russian...as Robin Williams would have said in Moscow on the Hudson...get a clue MEESTOR! This is a great film and very funny. At times it overdoes it on the flag waving, but it's still a charming film!

I have been a fan of Robin Williams for a long time. Bought this for our grand daughter as a gift and she said she thoroughly enjoyed this movie as we have in the past.
