The Irony of Fate (Ирония судьбы)

The The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath! (Ирония судьбы, или С лёгким паром!) is a Soviet comedy directed by Eldar Ryazanov as a made-for-TV movie.

The movie is a love story set in humour and the film is traditionally broadcast in Russia and some other former Soviet republics every New Year‘s Eve. Its as fondly viewed every year as the American film It’s a Wonderful Life is during the Christmas holidays.

Many memorable quotes from the film have become catch phrases in the Russian language. There are two parts, 1 and 2, of this wonderful comedy. For your understanding this movie is presented with English subtitles.
