The modest provincial branch of a company on sale of furniture marks out the shestilety. At the director the drinking bout is planned for this evening in other place therefore all responsibility for the organization, carrying out and consequences of an office party lays down on modest deputy Igor. Passed in the friendly situation, diluted with a small amount of alcohol evening, apparently, should be allocated with nothing from a train of everyday life, but next morning the collective finds defeat in salon. To find out, who is guilty in destructions and under what circumstances everything occurred, workers in turn tell that they did after left collective. However the solution of secret of an office party appears is not so simple at all.
Director Oleg Asadulin cooperates for the first time with the Enjoy Movies company. Youth TV series «The dark world», "Ship" and «The closed school» were its previous works
Hardly still though one movie company in Russia can brag of so close attention to the work. And let films Enjoy Movies can chorus be abused delightfully, without them it is already difficult to present a modern Russian cinema, as the company stably issues in hire the film behind the film. And always finds the grateful viewer. At "Mothers", «That men» create, "Doubler" behind shoulders of one thousand sessions, tens and hundreds millions rubles of collecting and infinite disputes on, whether it is necessary to call it a word of "cinema" or it is such sophisticated form of mockery at the viewer. We are inclined to consider that the pictures Enjoy Movies, at all claims to them, are an objective product of a joint of interests of the mass unpretentious viewer who has come to cinema to have a rest, and the enthusiasts able beautifully to present plain, but times very ridiculous cinema.
As screenwriters of "Office party" constant authors of the show Comedy Club Pavel Karnaukhov and Sergey Mokhnachev (Immortal) acted. Their feather also possesses scripts of "Nurses" and "Doubler"
"Office party" from this point of view – the cinema close to ideal. A film format – the story of six participants of a wine party how they continued evening after left, – allows to capture the huge horizon of images and events. Authors use it with the maximum scope: the hipster and glamour a chik, the shop assistant-habalka and seldom drying out driver, mother’s darling and the clever man beaten by life – in their stories the viewer if will not make out itself, can quite remember something similar and from the rough youth.
Another matter, the same format, with being strung on a string of a common problem beads memoirs, demands at least equality of stories, and here "Office party" consults with it worse. If Maxim Vitorgan and Marina Fedunkiv’s segments put a hall on ears, Mikhail Bashkatov’s short story is filled up in repellent platitude, Miroslava Karpovich’s story tires with the hyperactivity, and adventures of the hero Aristarch Venes turned out unduly tightened. But the most important – in each of stories is the humour, the specifics, the sumasshedshinka, and it does cinema attractive generally.
By the way, about appeal. The Russian cinema, at constants on it attacks, gives out from time to time quite qualitative product to which then it is accepted to compare all novelties of hire. Yes, to "Office party" it is far to «Features of national hunting» or films «the Quartet And», similar on subject and advances with «the simple people». But on Enjoy Movies it is not necessary to hang up all dogs, the viewer changed also. To whom now will be interestingly vpleteny in the story about a wine party of frames of Russian hunting? Who will pay attention to quotes from other films and intended sendings to mass media? Now to cinemas there is other viewer who is not leaving the mobile phone throughout all session, with invariable "Klinsky", guided before cash desk by a principle:« whose poster is brighter, on that film and I will go». Not it began with "Office party" and not with "Office party" will end. Yes, authors are not especially baked about «education of young generation» and do not aspire to correct satire the world, but they and do not raise at it.
