Plot synopsis
Crawfishlike tells the story of Mikhail Mikhailovich, flawlessly played by one of the most gifted contemporary comedic actors, Mikhail Efremov. Mikhail Mikhailovich is an upper middle-class, middle-age, mediocre, bribe-welcoming bureaucrat who has an attractive wife (Natal’ia Vdovina), a somewhat loving, mediocre son, an unfaithful mistress (Elena Safonova), and a dumb, drunkard boss (Sergei Koltakov).<...>
