MOSCOW, February, 10. /TASS/. Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky said Russian film directors had better learn to make real high-grossing military films from Hollywood.
The minister said he feels sorry for Russian military cinematography having watched such films as Fury [starring Brad Pitt]. "Everything is perfect in it [Fury] - the idea and the actors," the minister said.
According to Medinsky “Americans are good at it”. Despite Russia lacking neither historical material nor talented producers, there is still a lot to learn from Hollywood.
Medinsky said he has already seen a new screen version of Boris Vasilyev’s novel The Dawns Here Are Quiet and found the film good.
According to the minister the film is aimed at those who have not read the novel and have not seen the soviet version of the film produced by Stanislav Rostotsky in 1972, in other words – at the young generation, and there is no need to compare the two versions.
