| Typical for its time.
Pretty famous Soviet actors worked in this 1980 movie. As usual we can see the effectiveness of state forces in intellectual standoff against criminal minds.

In the van, "Pastry" by police officers discovered a unique chandelier XVIII century, which criminals had intended to transport abroad. Until the outcome of the plot the main culprit remains unknown. However, it is clear tactics based on the reception "Sicilian defense" - defense by attacking ...

Sometimes there's a too intellectual fight and no physical. Only one chase (in the beginning) than lots of talks, murder, and talks again... I wouldn't say that real work of investigators remind endless action, but too many talks make a movie boring.
