The history of Soviet cinema is full of amazing facts. For example, did you know that in 1976 a joint Soviet-Japanese film "Dersu Uzala" was created based on the works of the researcher of the Far East Vladimir Arsenyev?

And that its director was not someone, but himself Akira Kurosawa?

His pedantry did not go unnoticed. The film received "Oscar"In 1976 in the category" Best Foreign Language Film ".

Vladimir Menshov says that he initially did not want to work on the film. We suppose he's glad he changed his mind. The film not only became the leader of the distribution in the USSR, but also received the love of the world viewer and the recognition of film academics.

Unfortunately, the Soviet citizen Menshov was not allowed to go to the States to receive an American award. Moreover, according to the director, he learned that the film won the prestigious award from the evening news release.

The picture should have been completely different. Initially, director Zvyagintsev wanted to tell the story of a desperate American worker, Chimeyer, who locked himself in a bulldozer and destroyed a factory building whose management was about to take his house away from him. However, the director realized that this plot was universal and transferred the action of his film to Russia. The story of the hero of this social drama is the story of the biblical Job, and the ruthless state machine is the sea monster known as Leviathan.

The film won 14 awards and 24 nominations, including the 2015 Oscar in the Best Foreign Language Film category.
