Still Waters (Russian: Тихие омуты, translit. Tikhie omuti) is 2000 Russian romantic comedy directed by Eldar Ryazanov.[1][2]


Anton M. Kashtanov (Alexander Abdulov) is a talented surgeon and head of a large clinic. He decides to escape his domineering and bad-tempered wife Pauline in the village of Still Waters. Here he reconnects with his childhood friend, the head of the local nature reserve. This pastoral idyll is unsettled by one matter: at the time of Kashtanov's departure two million dollars have disappeared from his foundation.

Two strong women launch independent investigations: a police detective and a TV reporter...



  • Eldar Ryazanov said that the character of Kashtanov was modeled after Anton Chekhov.[3]
  • The film was banned in Ukraine because Jan Tsapnik was declared as a danger to the country.[4]
