#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Two Soviet sailors, Peter and Sergei, go ashore in Liverpool to spend one night on the town. Peter can speak a minimal amount of English but it’s enough to make contact with two Liverpudlian natives, Elaine and Theresa. Elaine and Peter immediately fall in love with each other, but the night is short and they must leave with the ship. Elaine can’t forget him and writes a letter to Soviet General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev, asking him to make it possible for them to reunite.
Plot: The factories, pubs, clubs, hotels and streets of 1980s Liverpool form the backdrop for this tale of love, friendship, sex and a letter to the Soviet leader, Leonid Brezhnev. Two Liverpool lasses, Teresa and Elaine meet two Russian sailors, Sergei and Peter and hook up for a night of fun and frolics. Teresa is looking for sex and a smile, Elaine wants love, romance and the dream of a life far away from the grime of the Liverpool docklands. A classic British romantic comedy filled with new wave tunes, 80s fashion, a little politics and a lot of heart.

Lovely lark about Liverpool Loonies
Atmospheric, un-slick, and utterly unique, Letter to Brezhnev captures a slice of the 1980s which seems all the more extraordinary in 1999. Graced by realistic acting, deft camera work, and a superb soundtrack, one is successfully transformed to a period and a place, in this case wonderfully dreary Liverpool in the early 80s – New Wave music and the Cold War are in full swing. Such a movie is hip today but rarely achieved. The story may seem a little far-fetched – Liverpool girl (Pigg) gets Russian guy (Firth) with a little help from no less than the Soviet Premier – but some of us who grew up in the 80s like to think that it could. The 80s were like that. Now, we just have awful, cynical, formulaic pap – Reality Bites and Boys on the Side…whine, whine, whine. Why can’t more movies like Letter to Brezhnev be made?
Simply a beautiful love story
I first saw this film when it came out and just fell in love with it. I cannot say why either, it just has a magical quality that draws you in. The setting obviously helps, Liverpool is a beautiful city, architecturally and spiritually and you get lavish helpings of both. The performances from the four lead actors are flawless to me, just the right balance of comedy and pathos, with special mention to Margi Clarke, whose brassy exterior hides a tenderness which she allows to shine through every so often.(As an aside I saw her do stand up once at Band on the Wall in Manchester, and boy was she rude!) I’ve seen comments on the boards saying people enjoyed it when it first came out, but now find it a bit ridiculous, and I can only totally disagree with them. I still watch this film at least a couple of times a year and never tire of it. If you haven’t seen this gem, I can only suggest you get the DVD as soon as possible, and enjoy a film that exudes true human warmth.
