The idea of the film belongs to a group of astronauts headed by the twice Hero of the Soviet Union, Soviet cosmonaut Alexei Leonov. "Somewhere in the year before King's death invited Leonov and Gagarin to his home and all night telling his true life story. Here is the story became the basis of the movie script" - told Kara. The mite has a great designer and daughter Natalya Koroleva.

According to pilot-cosmonaut Alexei Leonov, about the terrible period in the life of the Queen for many years few people knew - remember this was strictly forbidden. "I really wanted to just Yuri Kara made a film about this man, who was more to us than a father" - added Leonov.

In the domestic film genre films-biographies of today, there are few. Show the life of genius, the relatives have not filed against you in court, is not easy.

The film is set in the mid-30's, when a young scientist Sergei Korolev (Sergei Astakhov) managed to convince the highest government leaders and military commanders in the prospect of such a case, as a missile. The future chief designer of the film faced with incomprehension and even hostility to his bold idea. A talented young inventor overcame torture dungeons of the NKVD and the gold mines of the Gulag, thanks to his faith in the dream of flying to Mars, by the way, the image of Mars, and walking on it the Queen on several occasions arise in the film. During the Martian landscape descended hills Tajikistan, audio series drove to the Hollywood hills of Los Angeles.

From the title once it becomes clear what the movie and who is the protagonist, but still, watching this film, it seems that the main role still belongs to the scientist's mother Maria Nikolaevna (Natalia Fateeva).

At the heart of "The Queen" are events about which no one had never told, and this fact distinguishes the film from the other paintings of the great designer.

In any film must be present conflict. "Kingdom" was no exception. Here is a fight between people who are prepared to do anything to make the dream a reality. And people, unable to create anything good, but they will gladly podlozhat "pig" to those who selflessly and more talented than them. Negative characters in the film shows a very calm, they are not overplayed, and that is why it becomes even worse.

Kara made a film not about a tough guy who wets the enemy physically and mentally, and about a man winning, through faith in his dream because he did not betray her under any circumstances. And these traits of his character brilliantly embodied Astakhov.

In conclusion, I want to say that the picture of a great designer, obtain decent and without any unnecessary pathos.

Role in the film also performed: Xenia Vintsentini (wife of SPKorolev) - Victoria Tolstoganova, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky - People's Artist of Russia Sergey Jurassic, Friedrich Zander - Roman Indyk, pilot Gromov - Igor Lagutin, and many others. Budget of the film was $ 4 million. See the movie in theaters you can already October 11.
