The fact that the “Best Feature Film” will be a picture of the late Alexis Herman, “It is difficult to be God “, it was clear from the first minute. Explain this is difficult, but the general mood is captured immediately. The current “Nick” has become part of the memorial, paying tribute to our biggest director Alexey Herman. It noted in the director category. A fellow German harvested “Nick” and other categories. Marked not lived up to the shooting operator Vladimir Ilyin and surviving Yuriy Klimenko, artists Sergei Kokovkin, George Kropachev, Elena Zhukova and costume designer Catherine Shapkayts, sound Nikolai Astakhov. Best actor was Leonid Yarmolnik, which should be noted already for patience, because the work on the “Hard to Be God” was delayed almost a decade. Competitors have had serious Yarmolnik Artem Bystrov in “fool”, Alexander Zbruev in “Movies about Alekseev,” Alexei Serebryakov in “Leviathan.” “Pulse above normal. Why is it shakes – I do not know “- said Leonid Yarmolnik, receiving the award. Recalled his late father – a professional military, to carry out orders in 1968 when entering the tank in Czechoslovakia: “Most of the film we shot in the Czech Republic. And Herman said the Czechs: “Will not work well, we again vedem tanks.” I understand that it just kind of my “Nick”. It – more German. Many of those who watched the movie until the end, it seemed dull and dirty. But there are those who think he is a genius, he. The world can be saved, not fighting, but something changing in people’s minds, but it could do German ».

Almost all the awards received the widow of Alexis Herman Karmalita Svetlana and her son – Alexei German Jr. He recalled how his father walked painfully to this picture. Was in the hospital on a drip and then went to the set. “We have not changed anything, made the film the way I wanted Dad. This room friends, companions of his father, those with whom he wanted to talk “-and that’s it. Friends and comrades have made their choice. And presenting the award Academy president Andrei Konchalovsky said: “The only thing I regret that I can not give an award to him personally.” Svetlana Karmalita was happy that night: “I do not remember to” Nike “. If you have received for Best Director, the “Best Film” you do not shine. ” She turned to Yarmolnik “Lenya, you’re a hundred percent earned his” Nick “himself. I saw it and confirm ».

The best actress Daria Moroz became a” fool “. She herself sarcastically remarked that played the role of a girl with a frozen face, it became a kind of role. For “Best screenplay” award Yuri Bykov, who stopped calling on the award, because the picture “fool”, as a rule, does not receive anything, or is awarded for the script and the director of Bykov is clearly not enough. So Alex Aygi accidentally went and got the “Nick” in the category “Best music in the movie” – a “test” Alexander Kott. Usually, if Aygi appear at the ceremony, he did not shine. Is it worth it to ignore something perepadet. .

The five films included in the main category: in addition to tape Herman, this “White Nights postman Alexei Tryapitsyna” Andrei Konchalovsky, “Fool” Yuri Bykov, “Test” by Alexander Kott, “Leviathan” by Andrei Zvyagintsev. And if the day before the ceremony, many said that it is possible to “Nick” not to go, it is clear that Zvyagintsev win, the more that “Leviathan” had the highest number of nominations – 11. And after awarding only heard: “For what Zvyagintsev a ride?” . Discussed as if it were not kinoakademiki made their choice, and leadership “Nicky».

The most absurd that the already gloomy Zvyagintsev involved in a boring game with Lithuanian illusionists – at random and thanks to Leonid Yarmolnik. Andrew had to answer, as in a poker deck of cards, to name one of them. He chose the queen of spades, and then appeared on the stage actor Vladimir Dolinsky. Extracted from the trunk of one of the photos nominees, almost grudnichkovom age. Baby was Elena Liadov. It is – in the category “Best Actress” yes Roman Madyanov in the category “Best Actor” were among the recipients of the group “Leviathan.” If “Hard to Be God” has collected 7 out of 10 awards presented in the list of nominees, the “Leviathan” less fortunate: 2 out of 11.

Surprises at the ceremony were many. One of its leading – Actress Lisa Arzamasova – before our eyes into a trapeze artist and fly under the grate with a circus artist Alexander Volkov. Moreover, against the background of the frame from the movie “Test”, which produced the atomic bomb.

The most amusing presentation turned “Nicky” for “honor and dignity” actress Leah Akhedzhakova. Presents awards Naina Yeltsin and Inna Churikov. How to tell Naina Yeltsin, an assessment of not only artistic talent, but also civic and modesty. Inna Churikova laugh hall of his lengthy speech. She remembered the first time I saw his girlfriend in the Youth Theatre, where she played the boy. Yes so vividly that Churikov questioned – whether it is an actress, not a child there. “We need to love Leah such. She knows how to enjoy as anybody, any nonsense. Child, dog, cat. Loves all animals. Loves flowers that are planted with such passion. She – ambulance. Her health concerns even strangers “- stop Innu Mihalovnu was impossible. Leah Akhedzhakova in reply, suddenly began to say goodbye to colleagues: “Probably the last time I leave to my community. What strengths today the nominees presented. I am shocked. Something happened, all of a sudden just as powerful talents were able to speak. Soon we come to Zen Buddhism, metaphors, in some special sauce will submit their work to break through to the viewer. Actor – performer. Matter who you ordered. Tell me who your director, and I’ll tell you who you are. ” Sometimes it seems that it fails the role that talent left, and then together with the director will know what success is. “Thank you, my dear directors. Special thanks – Eldar Ryazanov. He offered me this territory and the subject. I tried as best I could not go with the territory, “- continues to” farewell “speech Akhedzhakova.

” The best non-fiction film “won” Koktebel stones “Andrei Osipov of Maximilian Voloshin, Alexei Tolstoy and other writers and poets who lived in Koktebel. The competition here was a strong – “On the threshold of fear” of the late Frank and Mary Hertz Kravchenko about our former compatriot, fell in love with the murderer of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, “The Last Knight Empire” Sergei Debizhev of writer Ivan Solonevich.

And in the category of “Best Animated Film” presented were strong work, and won “My personal elk” Leonid Shmelkova. “Best film of the CIS and Baltic States” was “tribe” Miroslav Slaboshpitskogo from Ukraine. And this is more a political decision. Were working and powerful, the same “Corn Island” George Ovashvili. But Georgian director is not likely to come to receive the award for the same “obvious reasons”, as was said at the ceremony.

«Tribe” was the only Russian actor – Alexander Sidelnikov, who spoke with the help of a sign language interpreter. Almost all heroes “tribe” – deaf.

«Discovery of the Year” called “Class correction” Ivan Tverdovskogo Jr., who has dozens of awards for his film.

Presenting “Nick” ” for his contribution to cinema science, criticism and education, “the founder of the Cinema Museum Nahum Kleinmann, Fyodor Bondarchuk called him great. A Kleiman in response kinoakademikov urged to take care of the Cinema Museum, of which he is no longer, for the sake of posterity. Special prize of the Academy “For outstanding contribution to the national cinema” was awarded in absentia the Petersburg Yury Klepikov screenwriter who wrote the screenplays for the films “The Story of Asya Klyachina” Andrei Konchalovsky, “Guys” and “Do not have a headache woodpecker” Dinara Assanova, “Ascent” Larissa Shepitko. Yuri Klepikov himself was not present at the ceremony – could not come from St. Petersburg for family reasons. Or maybe embarrassed because, as rightly pointed Konchalovsky, he – a serious, shy and clean. And this, according to the president, “Nicky” – not the best quality for success.


In Moscow, presented the award “Nika” – Russian newspaper

Furious spring snow did not stop the filmmakers who have gathered for their holiday in the theater “Russian Song”. After all, in a new place in the 28 th time awarded the prize “Nika”.

Theatre – spacious instead of everyone, were scored and balconies, and an amphitheater, and takedowns. The main difference between “Nicky” this year – that the ceremony took place faster than usual. The first on the scene rose president “Nicky” Andrei Konchalovsky and welcomed the guests. I must say that the guests on “Nick” as usual gathered nobles: Xenia Christmas, Stanislav Sadalsky, Pavel Astakhov, Alexander Rodnyanskii, Vyacheslav Telnov, Boris Berman, Cyril Razlogov, Vyacheslav Fetisov. Already begun prize and they all arrived and arrived Maxim Dunaevsky, Inna Churikova, Yuri Grymov, Daria Moroz and others.

“Year of funky we have. How many paintings Well, it started last year. How many artists both young and independent, which is removed and iPhone, and with his own money. The Academy has chosen this year, not without difficulty, “- said Andrei Konchalovsky.

The second innovation in the” Nike “- each of five films, caught in the category “Best Film of the Year”, presented at this time especially. For example, Alex Kortnev sang one of his greatest hits, introducing the film Yuri Bykov “Fool”. Actress Lisa Arzamasova rose into the air, like a real gymnast, presenting a picture of Alexander Kott “test”. Mikhail Efremov presented the film “Hard to Be a God” in verse. I must say that it is “hard to be God” was the triumph of the first part of the ceremony. The first prize for the best non-fiction film, was awarded the film “Koktebel stones,” directed by Andrei Osipov. The second – for the best music for the film – was awarded to Alexei Aygi for the film “Test”. And already the third “Nick” gave the film “Hard to be a God.” Award for best sound got Nikolai Astakhov. On stage to receive the prize went Alexei German Jr. and Svetlana Karmalita. Alexei German Jr. said that it Astakhov “pulled the film, when the pope was gone.” Svetlana Karmalita also admitted that the scoring pattern was given not only.

“Fartsa” Alexander Cekalo as a sign of quality – vokrug.tv

20:24, March 30, 2015

The fashion for “thaw” asked his Todorovski ” Hipsters. ” He is not just remembered that there was such an epoch. No, it does not merit this. Todorovski showed what colors can be painted gray Soviet everyday life, when they were all each other comrades and went dressed in 50 shades of gray. “Dudes” – it was not just a movie, but a real film festival. Heroes were not only vividly dressed and hurry love, but also sang and danced, and played the saxophone. Action “Hipsters” unfolds in Moscow 1955-1956 years – during the beginning of the Khrushchev thaw.

The history of the “thaw” that Todorovski took for the first channel is not in the format of a musical, but as a TV serial, began in 1961. The director talked about what he knew firsthand how to make movies in that era. The focus of the largest Soviet “Mosfilm” and its inhabitants with undercover games, intrigues and again – with songs, dances.

baton of Valery Todorovski took over Alexander Cekalo. And he seems to be hello “thaw” appearance in the very first frames “fartsa” Yevgeny Tsyganov in the form of one of the most famous shady businessmen Soviet-era underground multi Jan Rokotoff and then Alexander Yatsenko in the role of a taxi driver nicknamed Sergei Take-and- Let’s go. One would think, why? Why so hard to asking for a comparison with the “thaw”, if so comparisons can not be avoided? But the creators of “fartsa” how would tell us that they were not afraid. And they are not afraid, because their story – it is about something else. It is about the fact that when we are young, we think: this is our time – it is the most unscrupulous and ruthless. About the fact that in any era, people have a choice. About the fact that the concepts of friendship, honor and conscience – they are out of time. About the fact that love and sex have always been. About how the ship named “Dream” beating on the rocks under the weight of the harsh reality of the circumstances.

Andrei Trofimov returned to Moscow after a year spent on the construction of hydroelectric power plants. He dreams of becoming a writer and wants to be a good person. At the station, take the magazine “Youth” published there with his story and meet with friends. His house waiting for a loving mother and groom. Friends, neighbors, relatives and loved ones gather all at one table. That’s just this idyllic picture is long: the same evening before the choice is Andrew twice. And if the first time he will be able to remain a dreamer and a romantic last on the ground, in the second – no longer can. Andrew will have to lay down their idealism on the altar of friendship without reserve.

The main roles in “fartsa” performed by young actors who have not yet widely known and not had time to dry mouth viewer. At first I thought it strange appearance Zoe Berber after the “real kids” in “fartsa.” But the actress looked very organic in the way of the Soviet Nadi girl who dreams of becoming an actress. In the first series of Zoya Berber appears in quite explicit scenes. 18-year-old student Thais Vilkova, although not a debutante, but Zina in “fartsa” – her first major and serious role.

With Alexander Petrov channels in general played a cruel joke. Last week, he was a bandit Vadik in the Law “concrete jungle”, on this – black marketeer. For 25-year-old Philip Gorenstein role in Boris’ fartsa “- the first major of his career. He plays a womanizer and dandy – the army of fans can not be avoided. Alexei Veselkin the last time we saw last fall on TNT – in a cameo role in the TV series “Chernobyl. Exclusion zone. ” In general, for all the actors “fartsa” will certainly be a breakthrough.

And if starring in the TV series newcomers, the episodic – entirely stars: Yevgeny Tsyganov , Eugene Stychkin Alexei Serebryakov, Alexander Yatsenko , Yekaterina Volkova. The latest we have just seen in the role of chief editor in « Law stone jungle » – in the same position it will appear in the “fartsa.” And Eugene Stychkin, who played bad uncle in « Chernobyl. Exclusion Zone », will appear in the same role, but with curly hair! In general, the delicious “chips” in the series will be a lot.

The locomotive train called “fartsa” was Alexander Cekalo . He spoke not only the producer of the series, but also one of the main writers. The second was Alexander Kott. For two years they collected material: met with real black marketeers, who survived. And producers continue to do this because “fartsa” will be a few more seasons. The director of the project was Yegor Baranov , with whom Alexander did Cekalo “Locust».

Yegor 26 years – he was the same age as the young actors who play a major role. On the set was dominated by the fun and spirit of freedom and creativity. Actors ceremony offered their ideas. Friendship has developed not only on the screen, but also on the set. All are looking forward to the summer, when work will begin on a sequel to “fartsa».

It is felt that Alexander Cekalo managed to gather around him the right people. And the project was in a good right. And the most important thing – quality. Thought everything from savers to each chord in each series. In general, the name of Alexander Cekalo becomes a guarantee of quality. Whatever the series, the loudest and successful project. “Side of the Moon”, “Major”, “fartsa” happened, “Klim”, “method”, “Waste”, “The Other Side of the Moon – 2″, “Major-2″ is expected … Cekalo sets ambitious targets and until successfully deal with them. After all, if the viewer is looking forward to the second season, then the first shot is not in vain.



After the scandal with “Tannhauser” creative elite of the country spoke about censorship – NTV.ru

To protect Mezdricha rose the most famous cultural figures.

The new director of the Novosibirsk Theatre promises to regain the trust of the audience – BBC News

The Ministry of Culture has proposed the Novosibirsk diocese withdraw the appeal to the prosecutor about the controversial opera “Tannhauser”. The department believes that the court – still not a place for creative solutions issues. Production of “Tannhäuser” has caused strong dissatisfaction with the religious community and has already cost the position of director of the Novosibirsk Theatre Boris Mezdrichu. Was replaced by Vladimir Kehman. And he has already announced its plans, including with respect to the new name of the theater.

A day after his appointment as director of the Novosibirsk Opera Vladimir Kehman tells about the first decision in his new post. “The theater we call the Grand Theatre Siberia, – he says. – Tomorrow I’m meeting with the company in two hours. I talked today with all the creative director of the troupe. Everyone is waiting to see me. And I look forward to meeting with the team. And so, I hope that Tomorrow we met. After meeting with my team, we will decide how we will proceed with the “Tannhauser” “.

Kehmana called effective theatrical managers. He will retain his position as head of the Mikhailovsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, but the main focus of his life will certainly be an academic scene in Novosibirsk.

The dismissal of a civil servant Boris Mezdricha as director of the state agency was just the result of ignoring the requirements of the Ministry by head of them the same ministry, and appointed. In other words Mezdrich simply violated the ethics of labor relations. And public money staged, provoked a split in the community.

The former director was not able to realize that regardless of their relationship to one religion or another, the feelings of believers are entitled to respect. Society, the audience did not see the part of the theater management understanding of the situation, have not heard an apology.

The attempts to present the situation as an attack on freedom of the artist and the more censorship, at least – distortion of meaning. Scandalous experiments on small stages on private money – please, but what is the academic scene? Especially that claimed Wagner viewers just do not see.

The tasks before the new director is now really easy. “Here, in Novosibirsk, certainly, I am now primarily devoted his time and all his strength, and the whole experience to this theater actually acquired the greatness that he has always been – promises Vladimir Kehman. – And most importantly, that the two activities that we have to do in the near future (this is the 70th anniversary of Victory Day and the 70th anniversary of the theater). Because theater was built during the war. And this is very important, it is important to note at a decent level “.

One of the most brilliant theaters in the country must regain the trust, said its new leader, and his performances unite and not to split society.

Zvyagintsev called a meeting of the Ministry of Culture to “Tannhauser” Soviet “propesochivaniem dissidents”

Film notes that some statements made at the meeting, including representatives of the Ministry of Culture made, in practice, are not respected. For example, in “Principles of Cultural Policy” states that it is necessary “to create conditions for the realization of each person’s creative potential”, although in reality these conditions, no one creates.

Zvyagintsev indignant speeches at the council of representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church: “What is this exhortation? Why in the Public Council, within the walls of the Ministry of Culture is still a secular state, which should be not only respected, but also guarantee the constitutional rights of citizens to self-determination in terms of adherence to a particular religion or – on the contrary – no communication with her, uttered the words that are only relevant to the walls of the church or among the believers? ”

He said that the ROC has initiated the confrontation in the society in connection with the production of “Tannhäuser”.

“At the same meeting, pointed to the 44th article of the Constitution of the Russian Federation on the freedom of literary and artistic creation. So what? There is freedom of creativity, or not? Freedom, it’s how Bulgakov fish there are no first freshness. Its second freshness – it has censorship. Well, tell me straight: we want to return to censorship. Call a spade a spade. That Vsevolod Chaplin at this meeting called repeatedly to be brave. Well Be bold and say: “We would like to introduce censorship, “- says Zvyagintsev.

” We have to remind the basic principle of democracy: no one can be prosecuted for their beliefs. So let us recognize immediately that we live in a different environment, and it can not be called democratic. Then the environment in which we live? This question is much more significant today. And that’s what should be debating in the Public Council: the loss of our freedom, about how she belittled our eyes to you, like shagreen; and how it demeans the human spirit when under the pretext of violating the rights bestowed by God to man, “- says Zvyagintsev.
