The heroes will have to be stuck in a mysterious bar for a long time.

According to one version, Punxsutawney, a small town in Pennsylvania where Phil Connors, the main character of Groundhog Day, comes, is nothing more than a real purgatory. Bill Murray’s character is supposedly between heaven and hell, so that his soul is reborn through repentance, and who would have thought that this popular fan theory would be filmed in Russia. In the comedy genre.

At least this is exactly the thought suggested by the plot of the film “Honey, I won’t call you back,” directed by Alexander Fomin, in which the main roles will be played by Nikita Efremov, Agata Muceniece, Jan Tsapnik and Evgenia Dobrovolskaya.

The son of Mikhail Efremov agreed to film precisely because of the rather daring subject matter, as for Russian cinema, and said that on screen they usually do not talk about death so boldly.
