“First time” — this is the real story of the legendary flight crew of Pavel Belyayev
(Konstantin Khabensky) and Alexei Leonov (Yevgeny Mironov), a story that
set against the backdrop of the irreconcilable rivalry between the two superpowers for
superiority in space. The risks are huge, but we can’t give up the lead. Experienced
military pilot Pavel Belyaev and his partner Alexei Leonov, untried and
hot, dreaming about the feat, two people, ready to step into the unknown.
But no one could even imagine just what they would face in
flight. In this mission everything went wrong…

According to Alexey
The Leonov, the film forced him to relive all the dramatic
the circumstances of the flight.

“I think Yevgeny Mironov played convincingly and
significantly, — said the astronaut. He didn’t go into space, do not know what
the weightlessness, but he was able to feel and accurately reproduce how living and
working astronauts not only on earth but also in space. Of course, in the movie
it is impossible to show everything that happened. I had something to give. But
this film has not lost the main essence of what is happening. In the film there are moments
even when I’m scared In a real situation I performed the task, not much
thinking about the danger in the movie’s dramatic moments are underlined. When
this, I understand that this is an art sight, not a documentary
playback of events.” After watching Alexei Leonov met
the lead actor and producer of the movie “First Time” Eugene
Mironov.
