In the 90s, contentious issues were resolved rather to fight with his fists than at the negotiating table. Brawls in restaurants, stores, and on the streets was as much a part of life as the Brazilian series, which succeeded each other on television. In such a showdown was attended by Fyodor Bondarchuk.
Fyodor Bondarchuk, who may 9, marks 50 years in his youth, too, did not disdain participation in combat. However, whether common sense and the instinct of self-preservation, whether belonging to a famous family would not let him go too far. In 1991, Bondarchuk, having served in the army, at the second attempt he graduated from the directing Department of VGIK. This long-awaited event of the “star course,” which together with Fedor also studied Tigran Keosayan and Ivan ohlobystin decided to celebrate in a big way. Details of that night are etched in the memory of graduates. About them “StarHit” says friend and classmate Bondarchuk – Director Fuad Shabanov.
“We had a fairly friendly course, especially well-communicated “five” – Fedor, Avan, Ivan, Peter Rebane (now deceased) and me. That night we decided to party and went to a restaurant close to the Institute. Set the table – vodka, herring, potatoes, meat. What else was said about plans for the future, which was is enormous, the girls recounted incidents from student life…
Fyodor remembered in the army: he served first near Krasnoyarsk, then in a cavalry regiment in the Taman division, created for the filming of the battle scenes of the film by Sergei Bondarchuk “War and peace”.
Sated intercourse, alcohol, food, decided to bring to our event a little chanson. In the institution it was possible to order the music: local singer under the “minus” do all that your heart desires. Fedya asked him to do the “Black crow”. But as soon as I heard the opening notes, from the hall, located below us, I heard screams and a loud, persistent whistle. Decided that there’s probably some important moment of dispense is without music. After some time, again returned to “the Crow” – the same reaction. In the end, came down to find out what is happening, who whistles.
And ran for 15 Roma who gathered to celebrate the release from prison of his friend. Word for word, a fight broke out: everyone wanted to relax without harassment. I, Fyodor and Tigran, after hearing a hard-hitting speech in his address, began shouting blizzards Gypsy camp plates and all utensils handy.
The result could be much worse – then a lot of guys when they carried knives, and on the tables was full of them. Fortunately, the matter is not reached. Bondarchuk time commanded, saying, all, guys, enough, let’s go! Threw the money on the table, grabbed the bag and were as follows. And at the entrance to the restaurant is greeted by “black crow”, I mean the paddy wagon with a bunch of police dogs! As we got past them, I do not understand still. Apparently, that day fortune was on our side.
The next morning I heard that all Gypsies for drunkenness and the fight was tied. The next day our condition after a stormy and eventful night left much to be desired. My head ached – whether from alcohol, whether the impressions received. And we still had to play at the theater in the play by the novel of Ken Kesey “one flew over the cuckoo’s nest”. Fedor was McMurphy, I’m Martini, Keosayan – Harding. Our faces met all of the actions that had to be performed during the performance!
With the novel we, by the way, are still my friends, periodically intersect at the film events in the capital, congratulate each other on holidays. And sometimes remember events in those dashing years. Fyodor Bondarchuk and Paulina Andreeva gave the first joint interview
