How to evaluate life? Is it long or short? A person can live for many years and leave nothing behind, no memories of himself, but he lived a long time! Life can be very short, but bright as a star, flared up in the sky and giving its light to others. This light remains for a long time in the soul of all those whom it has touched at least for a moment. Today we recall the stars of our cinema, faded too early …
Andrei Krasko, having made his debut on the stage of the theater as a policeman, didn’t please General Churbanov at that time with his image, that after the patronage of the latter … he joined the army. Not only his plans collapsed, but also the plan of the director Dinara Asanova to remove him in the film “Boys”. After serving in the army, 10 long years of oblivion came – he rushed to the theaters, went to the provinces, sewed trousers in a cooperative, knead cement mortar, worked as a driver at a film studio. It was during the driver’s activities that the short, but “recognizable” role came to him in the film “Operation Happy New Year”, then another episode in the movie project “Streets of Broken Lights” and finally a breakthrough. They became the role written for him and under him in the series “National Security Agent.” Continue reading
The film industry is an unpredictable thing and, in my opinion, not always fair. Take at least the main cinematic award – the golden Oscar. For example, about 40 years ago, it was awarded to 10-year-old Tatum O’Neill – she went down in history as the youngest winner of a prestigious award. But after this childhood success, the actress showed little in herself. On the other hand, many by no means young actors and even recognized icons of the film business have been trying their whole lives, but never receive a figurine. Let’s remember today the most famous and interesting actors who have not yet received an Oscar. And, of course, we wish them to win the coveted figurine.
The famous Leo has long since grown from a handsome young man into an adult and serious actor, and with the Oscar he is disastrously unlucky. And no luck from the very beginning. Even before the notorious Titanic, a handsome 19-year-old boy played a difficult role as a mentally retarded teenager in the movie What Gilbert Grape Eats? His play seemed so convincing to critics that the young little-known actor was nominated for the main cinema award. Then the statuette was taken away from him by the elderly and experienced Tommy Lee Jones. Continue reading
A one-man show is a complex, rare genre and, some even say, are dying. Contrary to this sad opinion, Solo festival of solo performances is taking place in Moscow this week, which was attended by individualists from different countries of Europe. I propose today to arrange my own small festival and recall the most famous Russian solo performances.
The solo performance genre is complicated for any actor. Not everyone will be able to keep the attention of the audience for a long time. In an hour and a half, any monologue becomes boring. Trying to cheer up his speech, the actor can easily fall into vulgarity. In a word, a solo performance is a difficult genre, and only actors with a capital letter can stretch it out. Let’s see who exactly.
Arkady Raikin, miniatures
Then there was no such word. But the variety miniatures of the man-theater of Arkady Raikin, during which he instantly changed images, facial expressions and voice, in my opinion, are very suitable for the definition of a one-man show. Many of Raikin’s miniatures were included in his television play “People and Mannequins.” Continue reading
