Having never been lucky in the game of love and tired of waiting for the perfect woman to come along, John decides to take his chances and orders a mail-order bride from Russia online. At first, things seem perfect: his new bride Nadia is a gorgeous woman, and although she may not speak much English, her skills in the bedroom more than make up for any communication problems. When Nadia’s ‘cousins’ unexpectedly arrive to celebrate her birthday, John is drawn into their web of corruption and crime.
Plot: A shy bank clerk orders a Russian mail order bride, and finds his life turned upside down.

Underrated romantic comedy
This is a good example a film that in spite of the low rating is more than worth watching. The story is engaging and it doesn’t take long before the chemistry between Nicole Kidman and Ben Chaplin grabs your attention. The acting is first class and the characters are represented well. Sometimes it feels like the director couldn’t decide himself between drama and romantic comedy. Ben Chiller’s portrayal of the law abiding and shy Englishman with porn S.M. magazines hidden in the bedroom creates plenty of moments for laughs! As does the look in Nicole Kidman’s eyes when she is offering John his first taste of intimacy in a long time… Other times the actors and especially Nicole Kidman give this comedy quite expertly a dramatic slant.
A total waste.
A film that has no idea what it wants to be. Is it a black comedy? No, comedies are supposed to be funny. Is it a sex comedy? No, since it’s not sexy either. Is it a black romance? No, romances are supposed to be romantic. Is it a light thriller? No, thrillers are supposed to be at least moderately exciting. It seems like it’s aim is more in the comedy realm, constantly going for jokes that never land, but then it switches to thriller so drastically that it loses whatever pace it had going for it and then it randomly jumps around to a romance a few minutes later.
It’s all over the place with no footing, since Ben Chaplin is a remarkably flat and uncharismatic lead who was painful to watch. I hate characters that are written like this, the nerdy passive loser who suddenly decides that he’s an action hero, but Chaplin takes it to a new level with his complete like of anything compelling. Nicole Kidman gives it her all as a Russian mail-order bride (get it, because it’s “funny”) and despite her recognizable star power she is actually pretty convincing in the role. Vincent Cassel and Mathieu Kassovitz come in as two more Russians (because when you want to cast Russians, you go for Australians and Frenchmen) and while Cassel is relatively decent, Kassovitz just looks like a French guy speaking Russian.
But even if the cast was all on fire there would have been nothing to resurrect this dud from it’s poor writing and direction. A real waste of some good actors, thank god director Jez Butterworth hasn’t directed anything else since.
