• The Soviet rock star, played a role in the movie
Russian rock as a phenomenon widely asserted itself in the second half of the 80-ies of the last century. And some directors have decided to use it, inviting the main role instead of professional actors is rapidly gaining popularity of rock musicians. Let us remember these films.
The first thing that comes to mind - is, of course, "Needle" with Viktor Tsoi.
a huge success - Tsoi on the cover of "Soviet screen" and the winner of "Best Actor of the Year."
But he was not the first: in 1985 Alexander Stefanovich has entrusted the main role in the film Andrei Makarevich "start over", where he played a young and talented musician, who is in a creative impasse.
A couple of years later, on the screens out "cracker" with Konstantin Kinchevym.
Here, by the way, it was also a cover of "Soviet screen".
can not but recall the famous "Assa" Sergei Soloviev, though called Africa a musician, probably too bold, but nonetheless.
Yuri Shevchuk in 1990 starred in the title role in the surrealist fiction Sergei Selyanov (better known not as a director and as a producer) - "Spirit Day".
In the same year was released "Taxi Blues" by Pavel Lungin with Peter Mamonov in the title role (which many have noticed back in the same "Needle" Rashid Nugmanova). Much later, it will still be "The Island" and "The King", but this is a different time and a different story.
In 1991 he published another film with a rock musician in the title role - "Loch - water winner" with Sergei Kuryokhin.
You can still remember Garik Sukachev in "Fatal eggs" or Oleg Garkusha in the "I want". But that was another movie in another country and another time.
