"Hare over the abyss" - a history lesson from Tigran Keosayan

January 31 2006

Sometimes with the great of this world strange things befall. Went one day host the entire Soviet land, which the whole country except "Brezhnev" and did not call, a visit to Moldova, one of my favorite states. And immediately after the official reception was gone. And three days later was found and flown on a visit to India. And what a great man spent three days away from the bodyguards, the competent authorities and numerous secretaries, there are different versions. For example, that Brezhnev was a guest of a Gypsy Baron, was matchmaker for a gay wedding, nearly an entire people into exile in Siberia and made a declaration of love to the most expensive, but elusive, even for him a woman ...

Starring: Bogdan Stupka (Brezhnev), Sergei Gazarov (The Gypsy Baron), Vartan Darakchan (Lautar), Valery Zaitsev (daughter of the Baron), Yuri Stoyanov (Grossou), Vladimir Ilyin (Smirnov), Mikhail Efremov (Colonel Blynda), Igor Zolotovitskii (Malay), Elena Safonova (Queen of England).

Director - Tigran Keosayan. Scriptwriter - Dmitry Ivanov. Director of Photography - Igor Klebanov. Art Director - Nikolai Terekhov. Costume - Natalia Alexandrova. Composer - Rybnikov.

Tigran Keosayan always distinguished by his desire to please the public. In numerous interviews he has repeatedly stated that he does not care how his works are so-called critics - the main thing that people went to the movies on his movies. The audience responded Keosayanu reciprocate. He was not particularly "clever" band is almost always perceived to cheers: "Katka and Shiz," "Poor Sasha", "The President and his granddaughter," Lily silver. And now the court will be presented to the viewer a new job Keosayan - "Hare over the abyss." I must say that it is successfully entered into a number of works director.

But here's what strikes - so this is a fantasy writer Dmitry Ivanov. In his "artistic heritage" such works as the TV series "ER" and "Case Tattoo (videoesse Moscow underground), combining a documentary film (the real heroes in the real scenery, real dialogue) and staging (directed, film montage, developed the script).

The bottom line is that the script, world-weary general secretary Leonid Brezhnev, runs away from his protection and embarks on a journey in a balloon. Occurred as an unusual event in the Moldavian SSR. Secretary General of the breadth of spiritual help to arrange a simple gypsy love affairs - the musician. But the interesting thing is that the "Brezhnev" long in love with a lady. And the object of passion USSR leader is none other, as Elizabeth II - Queen of Great Britain. Brezhnev feeling is mutual, and in the final picture of booming big wedding ....

Unusual turn ....
