Mail Order Bride
Directed by Robert Capelli Jr. and Jeffrey Wolf, 2003
Staring Robert Capelli Jr., Ivana Milicevic, Danny Aiello and Slava Schoot
Even as a young adult, Anthony Santini (Robert Capelli Jr.) can't seem to make it as a mobster. His Uncle Tony (Anthony Aiello) is New York's top mafia boss is forced to overlook young Anthony's failings because of a promise made to Anthony's dying father years ago. But Tony's patience is wearing thin and when the opportunity comes to exile Anthony to Russia, Tony grabs it and convinces Anthony it is the opportunity to advance in the organization that he has been eagerly seeking.
A Russian mail order bride named Nina (Ivana Milicevic) has scammed one of Tony's men along with some other local men. Tony feels he has to take action and calls upon the Russian mob boss in Brighton Beach for assistance. The Russian boss has been saddled with watching over the son of the head honcho of the Russian mafia in Russia. Ivan (Slava Schoot), son of the head of the Russian mafia, has been sent to the U.S. to hide out from the KBG, and he has proved to be as much of a problem for the Russian mob in the U.S. as Anthony has been for his Uncle Tony. Both are dispatched to Russia, with the hope that they will never return. After a number of stupid stunts and the consumption of a lot of vodka by Ivan, they find Nina. The only problem is, Anthony falls in love with her and is scammed into helping her heist $2 million which she promptly makes off with leaving Anthony running from the KBG.
