“This project was very difficult for us. Script had been waiting for a screen adaptation for 4 years. It is written by Grigory Manukov, who had been working before with us under another project “Apostol”, – tells producer Denis Frolov. – Shooting process was very intense and creative: 101 shooting day, enormous field work in nature and in studio, war equipment, transport, expeditions… We have recreated almost an epoch lasting for 20 years, when one event was quickly changed by another. And our characters were growing as well.”
