The Director is preparing for the Grand premiere.
Lungin made the film “Brotherhood”, which will be released in the end
this year. Fragments of paintings were presented at the 105-m the Russian film market.
“To understand today’s
life, you need to rethink the past. USA in a cultural sense was
raised by books about the war in Vietnam, the understanding of its artists,
Directors and writers. In our country the past just forget it, says
Pavel Lungin. — But if you look, Afghanistan meant a lot. By and large, the end
The USSR began with the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. I wanted to look inside this process, to understand what
this to start a war and that is to finish it. We’re sort of won, but
went: and socialism there, and people who helped, left. About
this, too, would like to think, especially now, when on a nose the 30th anniversary of the conclusion
troops. Time to talk has come.”
“The script is based on the memoirs of the fighters of the 108 division, which
was derived almost without losses through a very dangerous Salang pass. It
known among all the soldiers-“Afghans”. “Brotherhood” — a psychological film,
despite the fact that it has a lot of action.
There is a fight which lasts 15 minutes, but through it reveals
characters and character types.
This film is not similar to my earlier work. I
always change genres, and this time decided to shoot a military drama with elements
Comedy. It always happens in war: in difficult times people psychologically
try to lighten your life with laughter. In a sense, I looked at the old
movies. For me “They fought for the Motherland” became a model undress
heroism, it is a war through
a soldier’s life, a story about ordinary people. So I have the guys who “fought
for the Motherland,” casual heroism which are understandable to us all.”
