Russian journalists asked Andrei Konchalovsky about a situation in which the producer of the movies “Kill bill,” “Scream” and “the Lord of the rings”. Director who worked in Hollywood and knows the “dream factory” inside, suggested that prosecution of Weinstein can be beneficial to third parties, for example, Donald Trump, who decided to endanger his opponent in the presidential election of Hillary Clinton.

Maybe within the Garden ring will also start this nonsense. But in my opinion, this is something serious. You know, the man is man, woman is woman,” – said Andrey.

In America, said the Director, adherence to conventional rules sometimes comes to the absurd. “When a man can not be called a man and a woman a woman and we should call them “person”, – said the artist in conversation with “Izvestia”.
