The hilarious, family friendly continuation of the most popular Russian comedy franchise produced by the master Timur Bekmambetov is back for its fifth celebratory installment. Set during the height of the festive season the film consists of five cine-novellas that take place in very different locations across different parts of Russia – from Moscow to St. Petersburg and even an oil-drilling platform in the icy Barents Sea. The stories of the disparate characters naturally intertwine on New Year’s Eve, when faith in love and people’s kindness in helping a complete stranger make miracles come true. All our favourite characters are back including the Skier v the Snowboarder and Granny Manya and of course some new folks and new jokes.
