What is your favourite scene in the film and why?
I like the scene when Masha stands with her teacher near the window smoking. You cant understand what is happening so far. But the swings are creaking. And if watching it for the second time the dialogue gets new meaning.
What has inspired you for the film?
Мoscow, of course. I was driving night Moscow and watched the lights.
Was there any funny or absurd moment while shooting process that you want to share with your grandchildren? Tell us first.
Oh, so many of them. Now I hardly remember them. But suddenly remind the episode: we needed the trolley to drive on reverse but it broke. And these sparkles on the wires are real. we stopped the shootings. But the scene was as we wanted. I didn't devised it but it was perfect.
Will you make any shot films more?
No, it's enough. I have already made 9.
