You I Love (Ya lyublyu tebya)
Two may be company, but three is more than anyone counted on in this outrageous comedy from Russia. Timofei (Evgeny Koryakovsky) is a successful advertising executive based in Moscow who is involved in a satisfying relationship with Vera (Lyubov Tolkalina), the host of a television news show; however, their relationship takes an unexpected turn when one night Timofei runs into Uloomji (Damir Badmaev), an attractive young man of Kalmyk descent, with his car. Timofei finds himself strongly attracted to Uloomji, and when Vera returns from a day at the television studio, she discovers the two men… 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
