Today in Moscow, an unusual premiere was held. A film of the Georgian director Rezo Film Chkheidze "Soldier's Father" was released again. Filmed in 1964, the film has acquired colors: the audience will see its color version. Mister Rezo told our correspondent how the work on the film was carried out, as well as about his future creative plans.


In Georgia, a joyful event took place. Soon, the film "Soldier's Father" in the updated full color version will return to the screen. Viewers have already seen a part of the film. The movie was filmed in 1964, and the people who have felt in love with this film have established a monument to soldier's father in the center of Telavi.

Ineza Avaliani, a director, a film critic: "Soldier's Father" is already a classic. It ranks among the top five films made on the military theme. It was called "a film about war without war". Of course, its renovation has a commercial purpose. I am confident that the company that has made the film colorful will receive great profit from this.

This is the only case when the director himself was personally involved in the work on a color version of the film. The work was quite complicated. He had to remember all the colors. Each frame was discussed with the director".

Within three years, representatives of the Belgian company RUSCICO contacted with batono Rezo and asked to consent to the creation of a color film version and always got refusal. Mister Rezo was afraid that they could spoil the movie, and did not give consent. Therefore, the firm made trial frames and showed them to the director. He liked it and agreed.
