In St. Petersburg, the shooting of the film “Blonde” (START) with Evgeny Tsyganov in the title role began. The screenplay for Pavel Mirzoev’s lyrical comedy, the son of Vladimir Mirzoev (Boris Godunov), is based on the film novel of the same name by Soviet playwright Alexander Volodin (Five Evenings, Autumn Marathon), written in 1984 about a young woman in search of of herself.
The only difference is that the director, who also became a screenwriter, adapted the “Blonde” to modern realities and transferred the action from the Leningrad of the 80s to modern St. Petersburg.
Actually, the blonde, Ira, is played by Daria Zhovner (“First Oscar”, “Saboteur: Crimea”). The girl works in the theater, works as a window washer in the moonlight, and is in love with an unreliable creative person named Lev (Evgeny Tsyganov), an aspiring director.
“These girls are now in their thirties,” says the film’s director. “They did not become lawyer-economists, as we once did, reject the home-family-work pattern, try to realize themselves in creative professions, and sometimes invent them themselves. I tried to write something from scratch and suddenly remembered “Blonde” by Volodin. The approach to the heroine requires lightness and temperament. She is anything but a languid and tedious victim. This young woman is a bit of an oddball, incredibly active, impetuous, who just isn’t physically capable of living by the rules. In fact, Anger is our common inner ideal, which we nurture in ourselves to a certain extent, and then, as we grow older, we abandon it.
The interpreter of the main role considers that role as a gift.
“Trying to understand her, to catch her is an incredibly interesting task for me,” emphasizes the actress. -Ira was composed by Alexander Volodin and working with her text is a great happiness! As you know, all the stories in the world speak of love. Our image is also, first of all, about this.
In addition to Zhovner and Tsyganov, Fyodor Fedotov (“Silver Skates”), Yulia Marchenko (“Gogol”, “Vertinsky”), Gennady Smirnov (“Time of the First”) and others are involved in the film. At the same time, the modern Petersburg of the May-June period will become “one of the main characters in the picture”, as the creators promise.
