The story of the new series “the penalty box”
set in 1946 post-war year. Ignat Belov (Kirill Safonov) do not
just got back from the front as he landed in trouble — he could face jail
for the attack on the train, which he, however, did not commit. Clever police
Ignat offers a deal: he is introduced to a dangerous gang and the leader takes Burnt
(Maxim Drozd), and in return receives a full rehabilitation.

Ignat — a complicated man of destiny, who loves his country,
a woman, who was a meat grinder of post-war actions while trying
to be a man, says about your character Kirill Safonov. And for all
the complexity of the situation, he does not go on the side of evil, and works as an agent under
cover. “In the frame very much movement, a lot of fights, stunts. Of course, I had help from stuntmen. But I went enough
a large part of the exercise. This time it was hard because all
the action took place far from Moscow, in the cold, in the cold, in the snow.”

The history of the Director
“Penal” Oleg Fomin decided to tell through carefully selected details. For
filming had to leave Moscow for three hundred kilometers to Ryazan
the town of Kasimov, in which pre-war buildings remained virtually untouched.
A terrible prison with narrow corridors and dark dungeons in the basement found under
Yaroslavl, as it turned out, even Solzhenitsyn at the time sat.

Costume tried
do not sew the actors costumes and dress them up in real vintage. A little easier with a female
outfits: dresses for viola, sweetheart girls Ignat (played by a young
actress Ieva Andreeviche) found at the Commission shops. “All things with
time sit, and they can be worn only by the skinny — told the costume designer — Ieva just a girl of fragile, small in size, so she picked up
a bunch of vintage dresses. We have a record for the number of outfits.” Shirt
which Kirill Safonov wore during filming, too, was authentic — their
dug up in a specialty thrift store. Costume
invented for Ignat distinctive piece of clothing — a leather jacket, which
gets to him randomly at the beginning of the film. “Wonderful brown leather jacket
bought at a flea market, and her age had she looked like this
textured — told the dresser. And Kirill Safonov two months of filming
almost did not get out of the jacket, because the men in the postwar
time, outfits were changed infrequently”.

Make-up artists from costumers not
behind. Especially did they bother with the scar from the burn of the leader of the gang Burnt
(Maxim Drozd). Before the start of the filming made a plaster mold with a pattern that
scar. This form was filled with a soft silicone two colors, the surface of it
was razravnivaya, and left to congeal. After 15 minutes the scar was ready.
The silicone pad was removed from the mold and carefully sculpted on the cheek of the actor. After
its a little tinted with special inks so that the overlay merged with
the skin of the actor. The total for the project was made 25 of these stickers — so many shooting
days Maxim Drozd reincarnated in the role of burning.

The film’s Director Oleg Fomin has performed in the series the role of rough and
ill major of the MGB Pantera, and his wife Marina Ekaterina Volkova. “I
called Marina — she is a very daring girl, the wife of the big chief of the MGB — said Volkov. — She drives a car. In some ways it is even a nymphomaniac, I don’t know
what is the reason, probably, of dissatisfaction with her husband. She believes that
husband is busy looking for criminals and not paying her enough attention. Although it
live in full abundance, has certain privileges. But she need a man
which could to suppress it. And Paniker is not capable”.
