The topic is pretty hot as much as you can google it and find discussions and reviews. This is a book wrote by Presnyakov Brothers, Russia. It is shown in Moscow theater, you can find movie in a DVD (director Kirill Serebrennikov).
However, I wanted to discuss not the movie, produced by Kirill Serebrennikov, but performance, directed by Oskaras Koršunovas “Vaidinant auką” (En: ”Playing the victim“, Ru: (original): “Изображая жертву”), Lithuania. This one is not so popular and not many people heard of it (most likely Lithuanians and in N.Novgorod, Russia), but still Oskaras vision of nowadays popular play is presented in much more effective way. Watching the movie after the O. Koršunovas performance is a waste of time, because you get allmost nothing…
Moreover, O. Koršunovas shows another presentation of realationship between parents and children. And he takes us to our childhood, when we where taught what we should do and what is wrong. So, while mother is saying to his son:
“Do ‘this’, dont’t do ‘that’. Now you are warn…”.
The answer comes:
“… and secured.”
A lot of questions appears without answers. What can do a young man to get control of his life and get freedom?
Lastly, the soundtrack from the movie wasn’t even a bit exciting, whereas composer’s Gintaras Sodeika’s music was taking controll of audience in the theater… Try it yourseft and feel the real passion of trully-russian ‘balads’ (“Legko”), then come to see the performance “Vaidinant auką” and get all the excitment!
