The capital of Alsace has already hosted a Russian film week not so long ago. The forthcoming Russian film week's opening ceremony featured Alexander Rogozhkin's movie "Cuckoo". This motion picture, which has already received top awards during Russian and French film festivals, was shown at the Odysseus movie theater, which is among Europe's oldest. Local audiences showed lively interest to it.
The movie-week program also includes movies, which were distributed over the last two years, and which remain wildly popular with Russian and foreign audiences alike. Their list includes Gennady Sidorov's "Old Little Ladies", Philip Yankovsky's "Moving On", Vera Storozheva's "Sky, Plane, Girl", Vitaly Melnikov's Poor, Poor Pavel" and Bakhtiyar Khudoinazarov's "Shic".
All these films were provided by Russia's Culture And Mass media Ministry and dubbed in French.
Andrei Zvyagintsev's "The Return", which has already received the Golden Lion, i.e. the Venice international film festival's top award, will apparently be shown in Strasbourg.
