In this article we investigate the electron-phonon interaction in metals in the system strongly reduced in one dimension. The Fermi sphere which represents the free-electron structure of a bulk metal was replaced by a discrete set of the Fermi disks. Using the variational expression for resistivity the temperature and film thickness dependences of the resistivity were derived and compared with experimental data.
