The Target

Genre: Drama
91 min

You already touched me

in the shower.

- How much?

- Sixty-nine.

I still don't believe it.

What don't you believe?

That it's possible to make

a metering device like this.

I'm not going to argue about it.

The people working on it

are smarter than we are.

There's nothing in the world

that can't be quantified.

Do I have to wear a hat?

Good evening viewers and friends!

Welcome to the Moscow Hippodrome!

Today I'm happy because I managed

not only to persuade my shy sister,

Zoya, to join us, but her husband,

the famous Viktor Chelishchev.

For those who have fallen

from the moon,

we are here at

The Onward Russia Derby.

I hope those of you back from work,

and those tired from idling,

are ready to release their pent-up

energy over the next 90 minutes.

Tonight's jackpot is over

thirty-four million rubles!

It's quite impressive!

Viktor, long time no see!

It's been almost a week,

but it seems like ages!

I'm happy to introduce

our second couple.

Andrey is a dispatcher at

a nuclear power plant,

and his charming wife, Katya,

is a postal clerk.

It's so symbolic that

two of our contestants

work in areas

vital to our homeland:

natural resources

and nuclear energy.

This brings to mind

a tricky question:

Do we need natural resources if we

have nuclear energy and vice versa?

I think we need one and the other.

That's a terrific answer!

Tonight, fast horses are more

important than nuclear reactions.

No less than twelve thermonuclear

reactions will be controlled by

the experienced hands

and legs of these jockeys!

I'm already trembling

and you should be too!

Place your bets!

The jackpot is snowballing!


Are you ready?

Ready. We're betting

five thousand on Rubin.

That's a risky bet!

Rubin is 16 to 20.

Zoya and Viktor, which
