"Company 9" attacks

October 5 2005

In the first five days of hire film "Company 9" collected a record amount: more than $ 8 million, now watched by more than one million eight hundred thousand spectators.

This is the best starting figure for the entire modern history of film distribution in Russia and CIS countries.

According to the results of the first five days of "Company 9" surely "beat" the results of a national "Night Watch" and "Turkish Gambit", and the absolute champion of the Russian hire - the movie "The Matrix: Revolutions.

Action film "Company 9" takes place in the Soviet Union in the second half of 80. Seven young recruits who, after several months uchebke fall in most Afghan hell. A group of commandos is assigned to take command of the height and hold it until the passage of the column. Many called it the "penal battalion" because there fell mainly inveterate bullies and dubious social elements. But precisely because of "Nine," came the greatest number of heroes of the Soviet Union.

The action ninth company was killed, and not waiting for reinforcements. And the only one who survived the platoon commander was destined to know that the war is over.

The basis of the script laid down by Yuri Korotkov real events. Company 9 345 th Independent Guards Parachute Regiment was almost the most legendary units of the Soviet Army in Afghanistan.

As for director Fyodor Bondarchuk, he said that this story about male friendship, fellowship, brotherhood. How the Russian boys won the Afghan war. Each of them won their internal war. "This is my anthem is not so long lost youthful illusions that it was hard to lose. They spread like a house of cards. "

Main characters of the pattern of 18-20 years. That's what these guys see Bondarchuk: "Young people in this age of maximalist given eternal philosophical questions of Russian literature:" I shaky creature and Does the right have? ". In 30-35 years, a different degree of perception of life, when you can easily say: "Yes, I am a coward, but God bless him! I have a family, wife, children, dog, farm, garden. I swirled the winter banks of cucumbers. And let me be called a coward! ".

Now about how to take a picture viewer. The views are diametrically opposed. From enthusiastic to more than moderate. Someone accuses Bondarchuk, that he went to the path of least resistance, and chose for his picture of a win-win - a story about death in war - and it always touches. Someone caught a picture and puts it on par with Hollywood hits "Saving Private Ryan" and "Black Hawk Down."

Almost everything looked a movie with one voice speak of a well-chosen cast of, high-end camera work.
