You I Love (Ya lyublyu tebya)
Vera and Tim are successful young professionals living fast-paced lives in ultra-modern Moscow. Their lives crackle with the capitalist energy of excess, anxiety, consumption, and stress- and they are in love. Everything changes one night when Tim accidentally drives his car into Uloomji, a young Kalmyk day worker. (The Kalmyks are a semi-nomadic people of Mongolian decent.) The two men begin a torrid affair that involves howling and knocking over a lot of furniture. Tim is attracted to Uloomji's exotic demeanor and liberated by his impulsiveness and lack of inhibition. To Uloomji, Tim… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's certainly no surprise that the best apology Timofei can manage for the heartbroken Vera involves repeating lines from a bad television soap opera."
‑ Peter Debruge, Miami Herald
"To say the epilogue strains credibility is a kindness. The filmmakers seem set on a happy ending, no matter what the story itself is telling them."
‑ Achy Obejas, Chicago Tribune
"shows us a Russia we don't often get to see"
‑ Don Willmott,
"None of the performers leaves much of an impression...and the stylistic tricks, while visually interesting, aren't enough to compensate."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"The whole thing has a dour resolve that undermines its attempts at humor."
‑ Bill Gallo, Dallas Observer
"The fault lies in an anemic script and misguided attempts by co-directors Olga Stolpovskaya and Dmitry Troitsky to seem hip by using lots of quick cuts."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"Though the progress of this ill-matched love triangle is fun to follow in its self-consciously wacky way, the movie's chief pleasures, at least to a Western eye, are anthropological."
‑ Ella Taylor, L.A. Weekly
"Stolpovskaya's story of bisexual desire does not hold up its narrative end."
‑ Laura Kelly, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
" an implausible, superficial knock-off of a Pedro Amolodovar flick."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
"The characters are likeable so you don't mind following them on their adventures, even when the destination isn't exactly clear."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone,
"The film comes off as little more than a shock-value exercise."
‑ Mario Tarradell, Dallas Morning News
"Sizzling premise loses steam"
‑ S. James Wegg, JWR
"The movie's choppy MTV-style edits seem to be covering up a lack of focus in the characters' motivations."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"Rather trite and passe, not to mention overwrought and narratively chaotic...this is one 'Love' that's easy to resist."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"What was intended as a breezy multiple romance gets swamped by editorial turbulence."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
