Director Alexei Uchitel – about the new nudity of Christina Asmus: “I was amazed!”

Each has its own isolation. Someone got stuck in Bali, someone climbed away into the wilderness, someone does not leave the city apartment. And here Director Alexey Uchitel (“Walk”, “Land”, “Diary of his wife”) is completing work on a new painting – “47”, dedicated to the journey of Victor’s tomb Tsoi to the northern capital after deadly Accident in 1990.

In a conversation with the writer Alexander Tsypkin, based on the works of which the series is already being shot, the director remembered how he convinced Tsoi to star in his film and why


“When we shot“ Rock ”in 1986, none of that company knew me – neither Grebenshchikov nor Garkusha. Who knows who I am? The KGB or something else. AND [чтобы наладить контакт] I chose the most silent – Tsoi. And he said: “Listen, Victor, let me come with an operator, a camera to your boiler room, and we will sit with you for a shift – and he was on duty for two days – and we’ll shoot. Not a single question, I swear, I will. As it is, it is. Then you come – take a look. If you don’t like it, we’ll disperse. ” And these were the first frames of the stoker, which now often show. I saw a lot of things: different people came and drank, but I honestly restrained myself – I didn’t move anything, I didn’t say “come here”. Perhaps that’s why it turned out to make a film. And then they came to my native Leningrad documentary studio in the director’s room with the whole Kino group – they watched in silence, went out in silence. I think: Christmas trees, sticks, what is there? I say: “Vit, tell me! Did you like it or not? ” And in response there was one word: “Normal.” This word gave me a sharp pass to life. After that, no one asked who I am and what they eat me with. ”

Frame from the movie “Rock”


“When a terrible accident occurred (Viktor Tsoi crashed on August 15, 1990 after the collision of his Moskvich in the oncoming lane with the Ikarus bus, which was driven by Janis Fibigs, on the highway SlokaTalsi – Aut.) From material that was not included in the Rock, we mounted the picture “The Last Hero”, then I met the driver of Ikarus, who was driving, and spoke with the investigator. Then it settled down with me. When you go and don’t know who Tsoi is … and then life changes abruptly (the driver was found not guilty, but nevertheless became known throughout the USSR – Aut.). The story of our picture “47” begins with an accident, and then begins the journey of the bus with Tsoi’s coffin in Petersburg. A kind of roadflies. The one who is driving does not know who all these people close to Choi are (Ricochet performed by Ilya Del, wife Natalya Reasons performed by Paulina Andreeva etc.), but they don’t know what kind of driver it is.

About 7-8 years ago, Sasha Gonorovsky (“The Land”, “From Five to Seven”) wrote the script, but we did not shoot. I thought that it was irrelevant, but interest in Tsoi is growing more and more every year. This is a mystery that no one will solve. With all due respect and Vysotskyand to Okudzhavaaccording to how often they sing, Choi overtook them. ”

In December, I starred in the full-length film Whaling. This is not horror)))), this is drama. I played the girl from the video chat Uuuf))) But I hasten to upset you, there were no naughty scenes. It’s even straight offensive. But there was my longest double in my career, which lasted 43 minutes. Studio: @ Production: Russia, Poland Gen. producer: Aleksey Uchitel Director and screenwriter: Philipp Yuryev Camera-man: Mikhail Khursevich, Yakov Mironchev Which image from the movie do you like more?


“At our Rock studio, we also shoot full-length debuts. One of my students Philip Yuriev seven years he wrote the script for the painting “Whalers”, which he then shot in Kamchatka. A stunning story will soon be shown at one of the major festivals, if it takes place. So, according to the plot, whalers are watching a computer showing a undressing girl [из секс-чата]. And this heroine was supposed to play Christina Asmus. She read the script, she liked it, agreed. Then the film “Text” comes out, this whole story takes place (after naked scenes with Ivan Yankovsky the actress’s husband, Harik Kharlamov, was sucked as a cuckold, in the end couple gets divorced and assures that the cinema has nothing to do with it – Auth.). And then an agent calls me and explains that Christina can’t act in our scene. I begged them to come to the studio, Asmus apologized for a long time that it would not work. Hoping for nothing, I turned on her 10 minutes of the film, she looked and said: “That’s it. Let’s. When to shoot? ” I asked again: “Are you not afraid that they will start rinsing again?” “This is my business,” she said firmly and starred wonderfully. I was amazed! ”


“This is not vulgarity, but real life”: Christina Asmus told how she decided on the bed scene in the new film

For the sake of the role in the 18+ tape, the actress first completely undressed on the screen and herself shot intimate shots on the phone (details)


“Let them try to do it in Russia” – Sport – Kommersant

Former Formula 1 promoter and actually the creator of the world’s most prestigious racing series in its current form, Bernie Ecclestone has responded to allegations of racism that fell upon him after saying that “many blacks are more racist than white.” According to Mr. Ecclestone, it is not his fault that he is white, or that he did not come out tall. “I realized that I had to put up with this. And Black should take care of himself, ”said Bernie Ecclestone, noting that he was not afraid of threats to deprive him of access to the race. “Let them try to do it in Russia. I’ll somehow get a pass, ”he said.

Bernie Ecclestone’s statement that “many blacks are more racist than they were before” provoked the expected sharp reaction in Formula 1. So, six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton called the position of Ecclestone “sad and disappointing.” “Bernie left our sport, and he is from another generation. But it is precisely such ignorant comments that show how far we are from making real equality possible. Now I understand completely why nothing has been done and said in our sport so that it becomes more diverse, and in order to respond to the racial harassment that I have encountered throughout my career, ”said Hamilton.

In turn, the current head of “Formula 1” Chase Kerry hastened to disown Bernie Ecclestone, calling his position unacceptable and saying that the status of honorary chairman of “Formula 1”, which Ecclestone received after the control over the series passed American Liberty Media , “Expired in June.” Also, the leadership of Formula 1 discusses the possibility of denying Ecclestone the right to attend races.

“Prohibit me from appearing on races? “I would not advise doing this,” Bernie Ecclestone told the Daily Mail. “They can try, for example, in Russia.” I think I’ll get a pass. ”

Bernie Ecclestone spoke more than once flattering about Russian President Vladimir Putin, with whose assistance it became possible to host the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi.

We also note that Ecclestone still has good relations with team leaders and national stage organizers. That is, in fact, excommunication from his presence at the race is really not easy.

Bernie Ecclestone also touched on his relationship with Chase Kerry and his words that he is no longer the honorary chairman of Formula 1. “When Chase asked me to resign, he talked a lot about how important my title was. He said that in the USA people are ready to kill for such a thing. But that doesn’t matter to me, ”said Bernie Ecclestone.“ I got my doctorate from Imperial College London 20 years ago. But I do not introduce myself as Dr. Ecclestone. And I’m glad that I have no relation to the management of Formula 1. After all, now I can’t be blamed for everything that they did. They raised this topic with racism because of what is happening in America. But maybe Chase will do something that could please the shareholders? COVID is luck for him. All failures can be blamed on a pandemic. ”

As for the allegations of racism, they are sure, Bernie Ecclestone, unfounded.

“I am not against blacks. On the contrary. I always helped them. In my life I have met many whites that I did not like, but not a single black. I was robbed a couple of times. Once they were three black guys. I got to the hospital then. But even after that, he never opposed black. Yes, and I do not perceive Hamilton as black or something else. He’s just Lewis, ”said Bernie Ecclestone. However, he believes that “if a person was refused work, then you must first find out why,” and not go straight to the marches, which, in his opinion, are now “quasi-Marxists”. “If you ask them what exactly they need, they won’t say it,” says Ecclestone.

“It’s not my fault that I’m white,” continued Bernie Ecclestone. “As well as the fact that he did not come out tall. At school they called me shorty. But then I realized that I had to deal with it. So Black should take care of himself. ”

Germany is preparing retaliatory measures if the US imposes further sanctions against the pipeline “Nord stream — 2”, according to Bloomberg.

As reported, referring to the two German officials in the administration of German Chancellor Angela Merkel are considering the probability to insist on coordinated action of the European Union in relation to possible sanctions. The Agency, citing the Ministry of economy of Germany, reports that the new sanctions will hit German and European companies, banks and public institutions. What a response considering the German authorities, is not specified.

Last week the Chairman of the Commission of the German Bundestag for economy and energy, Klaus Ernst said the German government should consider their actions if the US sanctions will take effect. In response, he offered to call the American Ambassador in Germany, to impose personal sanctions against senators who prepared the draft law on restrictions against the “Nord stream — 2” and to impose duties on incoming US liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Sanctions against companies involved in the construction of the United States approved in December 2019. Then the Swiss Allseas, which was engaged in pipe-laying of “Nord stream — 2” stopped working. The Russian authorities have repeatedly said that to complete the construction of the pipeline is possible on their own, and to do this, according to Minister of energy Alexander Novak, capable of ship-laying vessel “Akademik Chersky” (left to lay 160 km of pipes). In 2016, it was in the operational management of OOO “Gazprom FLOT” (“daughter” company of “Gazprom”, which is also the sole shareholder of the operator of project Nord Stream AG 2).


“Leaders pass from the stage of awareness to one of the transformation “

The Cross : Five years after the publication of the encyclical “Laudato si'”, how do you perceive its reception in the world of business ?

Philippe Royer : It is really prophetic. I want to show that, five years after its publication, it has become more and more reactions. She also has the distinction of making the bridge with very different people, regardless of their spiritual sensitivity.

“Laudato si’ “was asked five years ago of the issues that remain, more than ever of topical interest, such as, for example, the link between energy consumption and growth, the urgency of social and environmental, global warming and its consequences and the issue of solidarity of the North towards the South ; while laying a rupture, pointing to the fact that” everything is connected “.

Within Entrepreneurs and christian leaders (EDC), these themes have joined us and have aroused the enthusiasm of the. We believe particularly in the intuition of the pope on the “building of leadership” for the world is changing. It is not necessary to expect that the only other change but to engage a strong awareness that leaders rise up to become actors of the communal house.

The pope launches a call to conversion for each one to put his intelligence in motion, in order to offer future generations a world that is enjoyable and sustainable. During our lifetime, we are as managers, do we behave not as consumers who plunder the natural reserves.

The encyclical also calls for profound changes in the economic sphere, the extent to which meeting does it have resistance ?

Philippe Royer : In fact, there may be resistance. This is why our next national conference, 30 October to 1er November, have for theme : “Undertake for the common house “. It is to reconcile the entrepreneurial spirit – which we also called the pope — and the protection of the planet.

The encyclical encourages us not to remain fixed but to realize that as an entrepreneur, the inclusion of the most fragile, and respect for the planet can no longer be options. It is necessary to denounce the inequalities of the capitalist system and do understand that you can lose a bit of profitability in the short term for better in a sustainable way.

When I see that the twenty-five largest vessels of maritime transport consume energy to the equivalent of several million cars, I say to myself that this is no longer tenable, that it is necessary to boost production, national and local, thinking of relocating. Similarly, the encyclical invites us to consume less to go towards more sobriety happy to find better links.

But how to act in a concrete way ?

Philippe Royer : We encourage our members to take strong decisions. For example, near Roanne, the leaders of the weavings of Charlieu (Loire) have refused to produce in China at a lower cost and today, the company works well. Some show that it is possible. Leaders pass from the stage of awareness to that of the transformation.

I can also cite the example of Danone, which is for me a good news, even if the company is not perfect. CEO Emmanuel Faber wants to make it a company mission that is required to write an annual report explaining how it contributes to the common good.

The society must ensure to support all those who decide to change because companies have a societal responsibility. The EDC, we believe, particularly for the benefit of redefining the reason for being of the enterprise and particularly to come out of the opposition between the apostles of unbridled growth and those of degrowth radical.

Five years after the publication of the encyclical, what is there to do ?

Philippe Royer : First, I believe that one thing can make changing leaders : their children and grandchildren. To take my personal example, when I was talking about the growth of my group, that did not interest him much. On the other hand, when I tell them that we concourons to agriculture, low-carbon or relocating, then, it attracts their attention.

Overall, for most young people, the sense of their business is first. It is up to us to make a place for them. They will help us make progress because they are more consistent than we, the legalists of the growth.

Furthermore, a job remains to be carried out to reach non-christians. The encyclical continues to find an echo among people of all spiritualities. Christians must offer this encyclical to the world, respecting the otherness. It is not only for us.


In Mexico, it’s hard to do without mass

The forecourt is very deserted on this Mother’s Day Sunday in Mexico. Some families cross paths while respecting safety distances without much effort, facing the gigantic reinforced concrete architecture of the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, adjacent to the ancient temple, in the very Mexican baroque style.

In front of a side door, there is a rush: devotees want to attend mass. But it will be celebrated behind closed doors. Due to the coronavirus crisis, the Mexican Catholic Church is adapting, and this place which receives 20 million visitors a year – surpassed only by the Vatican – is no exception.

Faustino Suarez and his two children came to deposit a statuette of the Virgin of Guadalupe in a chapel, behind “La Villa”. He lights a candle, kneels. “We come every Sunday, but because of the pandemic, we listen to the office through the doors. ” As he stood up, Don Faustino added: “We could do it from home, but it’s more frustrating. “

“At home, there are more bad vibes”

The ceremony is celebrated behind closed doors but it is broadcast on public television and on the Internet. A lesser evil, “Even if it’s not the same. At home, there are more bad waves, regrets José Ignacio Sanchez, T-shirt of the virgin on the back, frame of the Guadalupe hanging on the belt. You are less comfortable. On TV, you feel less faith filtering through you. The basilica is more relaxing. “

Cardinal Carlos Aguiar Rates, Archbishop of Mexico City, himself called the presbyteral body “To appeal to creativity and alternative means of communication” to practice faith. Many Mexicans discovered the mass by television, like Bertha Dorador, who had to attend the funeral ceremony of her brother … via the Facebook account of the parish. “I couldn’t move anyway. It’s the first time I’ve watched a Mass on the Internet. “

Certainly, new technologies represent a solution for living your faith, “But for the Eucharist and the confession, this system has limits”, regrets Father Alfredo Ramos, of the Christ Roi parish, in a residential district of Mexico City. “Believers need a place for these sacraments, and it is irreplaceable. “

“It’s a lesson from God”

This priest also had to adapt for weddings and funerals, ceremonies limited to 15 people. “For the Covid-19 dead, whose bodies had to be locked in funeral bags due to health restrictions, the parents tell me” I feel like I didn’t say goodbye to him properly. ” It can be very badly lived. “

For his part, Cardinal Carlos Aguiar Rates wants to draw positive lessons from this crisis: “God manifests himself to dictate to us what he wants from us, in order to redirect us towards solidarity, fraternity, justice, peace. ” The faithful also learn from this pandemic, like José Ignacio: “There is less pollution, the animals come out as before …” The young man then turns to the statue of the Virgin. ” It’s a lesson that God gives us. “
