the Biographical film genre – from the most difficult. There is always the danger of mechanical to subdue the drama of the real course of specific fate – and then, instead of artistic thinking there is a biography, an illustration to the article in Wikipedia. In the Soviet cinema such biographies were very much in the Stalinist period malokartinya they have almost exhausted the yearly production. The art of accomplishment can be counted on the fingers of one hand: “Alexander Nevsky”, “Ivan the terrible”… what else? In both cases, the theme of the film was not a military leader and a king, a people’s tragedy, the problem of power and conscience.

Konstantin Buslov, recently starred in a biopic about the Kalashnikov, the year before was marked by a film about a Soviet aircraft designer Mikhail Mile “Heaven is measured in miles”. The film went unnoticed, but now he had a second chance: it came out on digital platforms. It has all the disadvantages of the typical film biography – but there is a topic that the authors are trying to learn from the life experience of the hero, and this topic is worth it: the Creator and power.

the Picture gives the impression is quite expensive: a lot of technology involved, recreated episodes in the U.S. and at the air show in Le Bourget in France, successfully transmitted the situation is quickly changing the country from the late 20’s through the Stalin and Khrushchev era – the environment almost all of the character’s life from boyhood dreams to the latest triumphs. Such films healing: reminiscent of today’s utterly confused the public, and in the most severe Stalinist times in the Soviet Union something grown, evolved, young insolent and bold, the old shared useful experience, a new and talented, and exactly the same as always and everywhere, fought restless creative thought. In this picture there scared baptized astronauts as “Paper soldier”, and no stupid super-task each frame to prove the hardships of Soviet slavery. The film goes through these times as through the layers of continuous history of the world, without being distracted by let important, but third-party for its national drama and tragedy. Not tempted popular current trend of “Give details!”, nothing is lacquer, but should choose destiny. In the famous comparison of “like grass through the asphalt,” he is interested not so much asphalt, but the all-conquering vitality of the grass.

Quite often, especially at first, the plot develops with a dotted line so often that it seems a confusion. But then taxiing to the what and the film: the fact that nothing in science and technology it is impossible to do, locked in his own country, as in the bunker that only international cooperation and global experience can move progress forward. Time itself, shown in the picture, was pervaded by the fresh winds of the Khrushchev thaw, when the national leader ineach imbued with a lively interest in how the world works outside powers subject to him. Khrushchev flew to America, and in the autumn of his feelings of jealousy to overseas wonders, then, played the role of a powerful dope: intellectual perfection became the ideal to which the country aspired. And sparked controversy with physicists lyricists, and the echo of poetic evenings in Polytechnical rolled around the Soviet Union, and the film “Nine days of one year” was a sign of a unique era in the life of the country, and his characters are the heroes of the time. And that Khrushchev, fly over new York, burned with a passion for modern aircraft, played a crucial role in the perfect snatch and then into the sky and into space.

the Role of Mikhail Mil in maturity entrusted Eugene Stychkin – actor, famous for their organic matter. And it successfully justifies the noticeable flaws of the script, its the dashed and some stereotyped image of “without fear and without reproach”. His character remains alive and quite reliable even in the episodes when he talks on equal terms with the all-powerful Secretary General, or in conversations with U.S. counterpart Sergei Sikorsky (Petar Zekavica), or when his American trip, he takes the liberty to be really independent from KGB surveillance, to make independent decisions – and in the end to win. A strong character gives Nikolai Kamov – his teacher, the designer of gyroplanes – Nikolay Merzlikin. Road of humanity lay strong – otherwise there would have technical and scientific breakthrough that hit the world. Paper soldiers do not fly into space – burn horror at the stage of the first stage.

Picture of Michael Mile continues the tradition of the playwright and Director Daniil Khrabrovitsky and his film “Nine days of one year” (scenario), “the taming of the fire” and “a Poem about wings” (direction), remaining in the history of cinema as the markings and evidence jerked forward era. It was a time not declared, and really popular patriotism and echoes the, alas, a unique atmosphere, which is a fresh wind burst then frozen cult the country is the main thing in this imperfect but contagious positive energy “story about real man”.
