Caucasian war is going to be continued on screen

2009-10-13 00:38

4238.jpegThe tragic events of last August may become a plot of the future motion-picture films. Film directors in various countries of the world are impressed by the story of the Georgian army invading the territory of South Ossetia and methodically firing at Tskhinval within 24 hours, simultaneously razing adjacent villages to the ground.

Hollywood was the first to announce the creation of a military drama following the August events. Why did the world's "dream factory" decide to turn to the August conflict in the Caucasus?


For some reason, there is no way to shoot another heroic saga about the American soldiers' heroic deeds in Afghanistan. The military in Pentagon even started talking about the probability of leaving this country. Well, why not shoot a film about some other people's war, again making the image of an enemy of the Russians.

It was a native of Finland Renny Harlin who decided to shoot such a film. Earlier, he staged several secondary thriller films. He made an attempt to have a dig at "Mannerheim" epic; however, he failed to shoot a historic blockbuster about the Russian-Finnish war.

No one agreed to give him money for a film like for it could turn out to be doubtful in the terms of political correctness. However, not without the State Department's support, he managed to obtain a smaller budget for a film where the image of Mikhail Saakashvili will again appear on the screen. Why again?

Mikhail Nikolaevitch has already been a movie hero of Yulia, a scandalous pornographic "masterpiece" by Alexey Mitrophanov. In the new movie, the role of the president with "a tragic fate" is probably going to be played by a Hollywood start Andy Garcia.

The actor has starred in many films, having played both positive characters and thorough scoundrels, so the new role will hardly have any effect on his career: just one more negative character.

It is not quite clear why Garcia agreed to play a secondary role. The main character of the film is not the Georgian president but an American journalist that accidentally finds himself in the center of the five-day war.

Well, this is hardly going to be Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise. Harlin has not got enough money for them, while Mikhail Saakashvili is going to pay only to Andy Garcia out of his own pocket.

However, recently the Georgian president received a much more attractive proposal to star in a domestic film for 25 million dollars.
