Trying to hold her back, he offers the wife an original technique of reconstruction of family relationships: seven times to dine in different conditions and then either completely break up or make up. Dating these occur then blindfolded, in the presence of a stranger, without clothes… “Remove “the naked dinner” was interesting: in each frame we casually covering different subjects, the most explicit camera angles” — smiling Pletnev. Family nest was shot on old dacha at Nikolina Gora.

And a mental hospital where the hero Kurzyna, staged in a vacant suburban clinic: the effect of presence created with the help of mattresses are hung over the beds for safety “patients.” During street shooting, the group pursued the vagaries of the weather. Because of the hurricane, we had to postpone work on the episode in which the hero runs across a busy highway. And just miraculously managed to finish shooting the final. “The film ends with the concert of my favorite band BrainStorm in Tagansky Park, — says Mikhail Pletnev. — We received permission from the government of Moscow and the support of the police, gathered via social media fans of the group — two hundred people crowd! And in the midst of shooting suddenly there was a huge downpour! Wait it out we could not: the concert had to finish at 23:00 that music does not interfere with the residents of the neighboring buildings…”

Vladimir Ilyin played the mental patient, Petar Zekavica — overseas boyfriend of the main character. Lykovo and Alexander got the role of a neighbor at the cottage, silently watching everything going on. “This role without words. But to create an image with one facial expression and plastique, the highest acting class,” — said Pletnev.
