  2. Meeting Sergei Soloviev and Tatiana Drubich

    Sergei Soloviev
    Soloviev was born in 1944 in the Karelo-Finnish Soviet Socialist Republic in the north-west of Russia right on the border with Finland. He studied at the all-Soviet state Institute of Cinematography before going on to work with Leningrad TV and Mosfilm until 1987. It was after this period that his filmmaking career really took off and his cult Perestroika classic, Assa, was made in 1987. The film was the first to represent underground culture, and rock music in particular, as force for change in the stagnant atmosphere in the late Soviet Union and, indeed, the films final song I Want Change became an anthem for the Gorbachev generation. His film Black Rose is an Emblem of Sorrow, Red Rose is an Emblem of Love was shown at Cannes in 1990.

    Tatiana Drubich
    atiana Drubich, who plays Anna in the film, was discovered by Soloviev when he filmed her in One Hundred Days After Childhood when she was just 13. From this point on they worked together on many occasions, building up a strong relationship. She has played the lead roles in Solovievs most successful films, and is well-loved by Russian audiences. Her successful career as an actress has not prevented her from pursuing an equally challenging career as a doctor specialising in geriatric medicine.
