Bitter drinking truth on the recipe of Natalia Meshchaninova 01/02/2018 automatic translate
ST. PETERSBURG. The publishing house "Seans" published a collection of short stories by the director and playwright Natalia Meshchaninova.
Established in 1993, the publishing house "Session" is one of those saving islands in the ocean of verbal waste paper, where the foot of the discerning reader and the cinephile is unquestionably treading. "Session" is about non-conformism, genuine feelings and real art, and not transcendental profits at any cost. The names of the heroes of already published or expected books are a good mark, a beacon "here, everything is honest": Muratova, Balabanov, Herman, Lutsik and Samoryadov, Bodrov, Gorenstein, Tarkovsky, Sokurov, Elsesser, Timofeevsky.
In this almost "Oscar" list - an excellent replenishment: a small collection of stories by the playwright and director Natalia Meshchaninova. She is the author of the script for the film "Arrhythmia", who collected a harvest of awards at national and international festivals. A piercing story without a banal monochrome, understandable to everyone living in this country.
Scenarios Meshchaninova - tattered to the skin, discarded as unnecessary rose-colored glasses, uncomfortable for the inhabitants of parallel reality is true. That’s why its creativity is so hard for the viewer: the director’s debut "Combine Hope" - about the harsh everyday life of the provincial provinces, created in cooperation with Guy Germanica "School", repeatedly announced long-suffering "Red Bracelets", "cinema with a human face" and sincere intonation "Another year."
The presence of barriers is now perceived rather as a sign of quality. In the case of Meshchaninova, it is unconditional. The collection of her stories is an extremely sincere story about herself, a return to the origins that allowed or did not prevent the birth of a great talent. That is true, according to Balzac, that it is like bitter drinking, unpleasant to the taste, but restoring health.
