The actress strongly against the new films about themselves and Vladimir Semenovich. The widow of the poet Marina Vladi last gave an interview in Yekaterinburg in 2017, when visited the Museum of Vladimir Vysotsky, which contains his stuff. Most of the rarities once belonging to Vlad, bought a Russian collector.
In 2015, Marina Vlady sold things Vysotsky at the Paris auction. With the hammer went the death mask, family icons, manuscripts. Russian businessman Andrey Gavrilovsky bought 37 lots. In Yekaterinburg, he built a skyscraper, called “Vysotsky”, and created a Museum. The most valuable exhibit is the last poem of Vladimir Vysotsky. It was the most expensive lot, it cost the collector in 200 thousand euros.
After Marina Vlady learned that a dear to her heart things will remain in Russia and will be stored at the Museum, she gave Gavrilovska a few items, for example, watch Vysotsky, which wore itself after the poet’s death. Vladi visited the Museum in Yekaterinburg only in 2017 and there gave a short interview, part of which was included in the documentary film “Vladimir Vysotsky. And, smiling, I broke the wings”.
“I’m glad it remained on Russian soil and not somewhere in France or America,” said the actress.
Many fans of Vysotsky took the sale of his effects painfully, Vladi was accused of commercialism, even betrayal. And she said she wants to turn the page, because it is very difficult to remember.
“My heart hurts a little… Because it is very difficult to dive into the past, in a past life. In this remarkable and dramatic part of our history. We lived 12 years together, and it’s not enough,” said Marina Vlady.
In the documentary film “Vladimir Vysotsky. And, smiling, I broke the wings” includes footage of Marina Vlady considering the exhibits in the Museum of Vladimir Vysotsky in Ekaterinburg. Marina barely holding back tears, and says she’s here for the first time. It is recognized that strongly against the documentary and feature films about themselves and Vysotsky. “As long as I live, I don’t want someone representing me,” says Marina.
