The shooting “Mysterious passion” took place in different cities, but the most severe was in
Crimea. “Worked in July, at the peak of the heat, and the temperature in the shade was 35
degree — says Filipp Yankovsky, who played Tushino poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko. We got a second Director fainted,
the makeup was bad. I got heat stroke and almost got
sun. But it was incredibly beautiful. Amazing in Koktebel
nature, and it’s completely understandable why there loved to go to rest with the poets.”

Jankowski admitted that with the great pleasure played in a duet with Chulpan Khamatova, which got the role of Nelly, Ahho — Bella
Akhmadullina, wife of Yevtushenko.

“I got great pleasure from playing with her
every second, — said Jankowski. — We are a husband and wife only in some parts of the movie, then
disagree, but continue to experience each other warm feelings. As
you know, our characters, despite the fact that all life together
lived sympathy to each other has kept… you know, to work in
movie with people with whom you are familiar or have worked in other
projects — it’s fun, especially when you’re playing husband and wife.”

The actor said that after shooting this picture without work will not remain. “I read an enormous number of poems by Yevtushenko. Although in the film
due to limited space, are heard only some passages that I learned from
a large margin. And I think I’m now second in the world after the Yevtushenko
the number of poems learnt by heart, smiles Philip. — We with Chulpan Khamatova, my
partner, joked that, when in a movie there are any
problems, we have a lot of concert material: Yevtushenko and Ahmadullina. One branch she, the one I have. The cities and villages of our
the country can go.”
