Why are you standing there?

- What's the movie?

- "Broken Heart"

- Is it about war?

- No, about love.

I place my money on No 13 and commit

my fate into the hands of the Almighty.

This is a roulette.

You bet money on it.

- Valiko, what does she want?

- She doesn't want anything. Dancing.

Respected sir, Mister Ali!

Here is a billion.

I ask for your daughter's

hand in marriage.

Ali! Don't leave!

He'll forgive you.

Farewell, Soreia.

A jug may be glued back together,

but a broken heart cannot!

He died. The end.

- Givi Ivanovich! Let me have

the car keys. - The tie.

I need to go to the city.

- No.

- Why?

- The muffler got lost, didn't it?

- That was a factory defect.

- The headlights got smashed?

- Was that my fault?

And yesterday Nadia found

a lipstick under the seat.

I explained that.

I took my sister to the hospital.

And what about

the champagne cork?

That's it! I'm not giving it to anyone

again. I'll learn to drive myself.

Kukush, hello!

Tell him to leave. Not enough air

to breathe in here anyway.

Zarbazan, be so kind and wait for me

out on the street, would you?

That's great. Please.

- Have a look.

- It's a bit tight.

It's hot. Heat makes objects expand,

and this is a winter hat.

In winter your head

will be smaller. Go.

In winter...

- Hello, Shota.

- Hello.

- May I?

- You are welcome.

Roza? It's me, Kukush.

Auntie Nina in Tbilisi, please.

An Azerbaijani, an Armenian

and a Georgian had an argument...

Auntie Nina, how are you?

How's Auntie Nadia?

Auntie Nina,

I want to ask you a favour.

Base 4 in Tbilisi has just got some

new school desks. Experimental ones.

Have we got anyone there? No?

In the milk factory? Even better.

No one will refuse them. Let them arrange

for some of the desks to go to our district.

At least enough for one school.

- Hello! How's it going?

- Your license.

- Have you heard that new joke?

- I've heard it. Your license.

- Maybe...

- Maybe not. Your license.

No, no and no!

5,800 Dutch chickens are waiting for me

in Tbilisi. What am I supposed to do?

Passengers take first priority.

A passenger can sit around for

two weeks and nothing will happen.

- But the chickens will go bad.

- Wait...

That cop doesn't respect you, you know.

He took your car, and your license too...

- Careful!

- What, is it glass or something?

Look here. Take it and

put it down gently. Got it?


- Don't recognise me?

- Valera, mate, listen.

- How on Earth?

- Deli is closed.

How are you, where?

Well, I'm... transporting chickens,

the Dutch ones.


This is Mimino. We've been together

in Voronezh Aviation College.
