After the world premiere screening of the Volga-Volga film at the 35th International Rotterdam Film Festival european press named the authors of the film "new russian dadaists". That's partly true, because Pavel Labazov and Andrey Silvestrov didn't produce a simple remake of the cult Soviet movie, but tried to create "the post-modern comedy" by changing the main actress of the film.

The upgraded film's heroine is Monroe (famous pop-artist Vladislav Mamyshev-Monroe), exactly his head only, which envades into the film theme, destroying old contexts and meanings, providing new buffoonery view on reality. White columns of the gigantic shipping locks, the "Iosif Stalin" river boat, and even Lenin's statue transformed to be plywood scenery. And proud soviet people, rushing by Volga river to Moscow , look as they are revolutionary ragamuffins who may be have no aims, but only the song...
