This review is from: Russian Dolls (Bilingual) [Import] (DVD)
"Les poupees russes" (= "Russian dolls") is the sequel to "L Aubergue espagnole" (= "The Spanish apartment"), an entertaining film about young people living in a foreign country and trying to find their path in life.

The director of both films is Cedric Klapisch, the subject is more or less the same, and all the actors of the first movie are present in the sequel. The difference is that "Les poupees russes" is better than "L Aubergue espagnole", due to the fact that it ties some plot holes, and allows us to see what happens to the characters. Are they mature, or merely older? And what happened to Xavier (Romain Duris), the young man from France who wanted to be a writer?

I thoroughly enjoyed discovering the answers to those questions, and I think the same thing will happen to you. All in all, "Les poupees russes" is not an excellent movie, but it is a very entertaining one, and I am pretty sure you will like it. Recommended!

PS: You don t need to watch "L Aubergue espagnole" before "Les poupees russes". However, doing so will give you more insight into what is happening, so I think it is worthwhile.
