“This is the first attempt that we managed to do with the ruddy crust. Not the first time for me to write music of a symphonic nature, with string orchestras, but to be a witness and see the fruits of the work in the cinema for the first time! Which I am incredibly happy. This is a huge degree of confidence. Hope this is the beginning of my creative journey as a composer”, – admitted Evgenie Filatov.
Roman Lutsk and Ivano-Frankivsk. He said that he knew in advance that Peter will play in the film adaptation. But, as the Director admitted Christina Sivolap, find the main characters was difficult.
“With Stephen and Adele was a very long journey. Ironic happened, because we were looking for Adele in Poland, and Stefu in Ukraine, and you see that everything turned out the opposite. Many criteria had to Stefy. Once Anna Samoilenko sends me in the New year the photo of Marianne and said, “Look at what Stef is in Poland.” Then we realized that Adele should be sought in Ukraine. And found Ales. So there was this band”, – said Cristina.
At the premiere was writer Sofia Andrukhovych. It was unexpected to hear from her that she saw the characters very differently.
“In fact, I imagined quite differently, and all the actors are nothing like my characters. Just from the beginning, when I felt that I want to take the risk, I decided that the most sensible thing is just to distance themselves from this case. Because I see that Nadia (producer Hope Zayonchkovskaya – ed.) is really enthusiastic and wants to do a good thing, and this is most important! I knew it would be something other than my novel. And that’s good. Is the interpretation”, – said the Andrukhovych.

Stef makes absolutely everything – caring for the pans, and preparing the house so that the fame of her cooking skills went all over the city. But inside she is raging a lot of thoughts and feelings. She feels lonely and loveless. Therefore, from time to time she talks to paintings on the walls, with live fish. Her strange behavior is due to the fact that it is very complex.

“She constantly punishes itself, then something starts to get up, and she does not understand why? Its a terrible complex that she’s looking for a reflection of his love in the eyes of others, so try as many people to help. Its the problem of codependency: from Adele, from Joseph, from the boy. She doesn’t feel your worth and stick to any creature that she thinks can give a little love”, – said the writer.
