Piter FM is a 2006 Russian comedy romance film directed by Oksana Bychkova and starring Ekaterina Fedulova, Evgeniy Tsyganov and Alexey Barabash. The plot revolves around the serendipitous and unexpected romance between a young man and woman living in St. Petersburg.[2]

Plot[]

Masha is a young woman working for a popular St. Petersburg radio station as a DJ. Maksim is a young man with a degree in architecture who has moved to St. Petersburg from Nizhny Novgorod and who works part-time as a street sweeper. Although Masha and Maksim have never met, they share a common trait: both have a tendency to be clumsy in daily life, always dropping and spilling things. Each is also at a crossroads in their lives. Masha is getting ready to marry her old schoolmate, Kostya, while Maksim has just won an international architecture competition and is preparing to move to Germany for a new job.

The two young people accidentally bump into each other in a crowd. Masha drops her cell phone and Maksim happens to pick it up. He wants to return it, but each time they try to meet, something happens to waylay their plans. The two keep ending up in the same places, but not knowing what the other looks like, they keep unwittingly passing by each other. In the meantime, Masha begins to realize that she is not in love with Kostya and agreeing to marry him was a rash decision on her part, while Maksim starts to think that he would rather live in St. Petersburg than move to Germany.
