MOSCOW, May 21. /TASS/. British filmmaker Peter Greenaway and his wife Saskia Boddeke are planing to make a film about life in Russia's Volga region based on a 19th century book by prominent French writer Alexandre Dumas, the film's producers said on Thursday.
The book, Adventures in Czarist Russia, or From Paris to Astrakhan, was written by the author of The Three Musketeers in 1858.
The film will review "the past and present of Russia as a country located on the border between Europe and Asia," producers said.
"This is a rather ambitious project, a 150-minute film featuring the multinational , multi-confessional and polyethnic nature of the Volga region," producers said.
Greenaway presented his new feature Eisenstein in Guanajuato at the Berlin International Film Festival in February. The film depicts legendary Soviet film director Sergei Eisentstein's ten-day love affair with a Mexican guide Palomino.
