The stigma of "talentless", scandalous novels and tears that she could not become a mother: the lone star of Irina Rozanova23.07.2022
When the film was released on the big screens, and fans began to call out to Rozanov herself on the street, she realized how right Todorovsky turned out to be. With his deep directorial gut, he felt the organics of his heroines. And each chose the right image. Someone cynical, someone forced-professional. Just as I could feel the request of the time, the burning interest of the townsfolk: how do currency prostitutes live in the collapsing Soviet Union? Is this a blue dream come true? After all, the interest in their secret life was enormous.
“How we looked then, our costumes, of course, shocked everyone around. We filmed scenes in the hospital near the Kursk railway station, where the heroines of Lena and Nastya Nemolyaeva work, and Inga and I come to them in our night clothes. And then they didn’t feed on the set, there were no dinners, we either carried something with us, or we had a ruble or something like that. In general, we decided to go and drink coffee. And it was impossible to change clothes, because the nails were glued on the ”Moment” glue, there were only tights, and God forbid they were torn, because they were brought to us from abroad, – Rozanova herself talked about the moments of filming. – We were all dressed up in the morning, everything was done, made up. Inga Dapkunaite and I walked in front, and the girls walked behind in white coats. The people stopped. We walked for a long time, passed the store ”Lyudmila”, went into a cafe. As I remember now: people were drinking coffee, we went in, and this is how the man was sitting with a cup of coffee, and so he was sitting, frozen. Then we went to the store ”Lyudmila” [and there we shocked the visitors with our appearance]. It was fun because they didn’t walk like that back then.”
