As filming "The Adventures of Electronics"
• How to remove "The Adventures of Electronics"
One of the most popular feature films in the history of Soviet and Russian cinema - "The Adventures of Electronics" - watched by several generations of children. The children enthusiastically and experiences still follows the adventures of a robot boy. We suggest you learn some interesting facts and comical from the shooting of this magnificent film.
Even in 1964, the writer Eugene Veltistov wrote the first book about electronics. While it was a trendy topic - and a fantastic story about a miracle-robot won the hearts of readers. Later Veltistov invented the continued adventures of Electronics and created new characters. All of them were so original, that is just asking to the movie screen.
In 1979, director Konstantin Bromberg decided to shoot at the Odessa film studio movie on this book and show young viewers the story of an amazing robot, an ordinary boy Sergei Syroezhkina and their many friends. As a writer he was invited to Eugene Veltistov. While he created a new version of the adventures of Electronics, the director was concerned with the problem - where to take the lead actors - Syroezhkina and Electronics.
In early 1979, the Odessa film studio announced a nationwide search. We are looking for two twin boys.
They had to be able to literally everything. Starting with guitar and ending with driving a moped. We tried hundreds of pairs. Search all: in Odessa itself, in Kiev, the republics and regions of the USSR. And finally - a godsend. The Moscow school №23 learned brothers Vladimir and Yuri Torsuevy, who sang and danced and played the guitar, and drove a moped. "The Adventures of Electronics" movie was saved. The premiere took place on March 23, 1980 in the theater of Odessa sanatorium "Ukraine". A month later, May 2, 1980, the film went on television to the expanses of our once infinitely vast country. "One was a frost below 40 degrees, and also the brothers Torsuevyh, the meeting no one came, - says the second director of the film Julia Konstantinova -... Led to their mother they something to read, played the guitar, sang and even though the main roles we planned to boys younger but approved all the 12-year-old Torsuevyh Jura on the samples became electronics and Volodya -. Syroezhkin, but something did not work then directed to swap them -. and shooting went on smoothly for the movie brothers hair dyed. in a light red color, and so they went to school. The boys have mole to allow them to get a haircut, but then got used to. "
"With the advent of Torsuevyh suddenly there is a problem, - said Julia Konstantinova -. When we were in Odessa, put them in a frame near the Gusev, that of the role of bully-bully turned them on the shoulder It was a state of emergency should be removed, and we have no Gusev!. ! in the last decisive day I looked in Odessa boarding. Just came in and me, rolled down from the railing and landed funny long freckled boy, Vasya humble. He became our inimitable Gusev. "
During the filming of the children have grown rapidly. I had to constantly alter their costumes. The girl smiled in a single take, a full mouth of teeth, and in the next scene she had no front teeth! "I had that class had fun looking as electronics prove the Pythagorean theorem - says director Konstantin Bromberg - And the children were tired and did not want to laugh I go to the board, not even knowing what to do now and say.." Guys I'll show you the radio call sign Australia, laughter bird ku-ki-Burri. "And I start to laugh at crazy. The whole class was lying with laughter!"
Scenery school built at the Odessa film studio. The shooting came from a dozen sullen fire and demanded to demolish the scenery. The next morning they again opened the pavilion and were stunned. The entire crew - in front of hundreds of children more of them adults - standing ring. Grinko stepped forward and said: "Only over our dead bodies!" - fire and retreated.
After 26 years, the creators of the film "The Adventures of Electronics" received appreciation letters from around the world. But critics, solving the riddle of the popularity of Electronics, already defended 12 theses! In particular, in scientific works and a phenomenon referred Ressam. In the life of this Airedale named Genghis.
The film directed by Konstantin Bromberg recalled: "Episode: Urry races on a motorcycle, Genghis running after him We're going to the operator the machine parallel to the highway, shooting suddenly Genghis all ahead, stops abruptly and somehow warning raises the front leg Our driver brakes... and we understand that Genghis saved us - right in the course (and the driver kept looking in the rear window on the dog) in front of us open manhole at other times we are the operator Apryatinym terribly misused, deciding how the lens to shoot the scene in the midst!. our Genghis dispute runs and carries the lens ... the teeth, which we accept and make up! "
"Electronics" filmed 8 months to work in the film the brothers received 120 rubles a month. The money they spend on food, things, attractions and cigarettes. According to the brothers, right after the release of the film fans painted the entrance of the house where they lived, delighted at the door threw tomatoes and chalk wrote in the court: "We love you!"
Parents even had to change his home phone number, to get rid of fans boys. Then the time came when they sostrigla white colored hair and no longer recognize. Gemini Torsuevy starred in two films: "Brothers" and "Dunno from our yard." Vladimir worked in the administrative group Nikita Mikhalkov. But today the two are engaged in business.
The role of the girl T-shirts offered already famous Red Riding Hood Yana Poplavskaya, but the young star capricious and refused. Nobody knows when Oksana Fandera also claimed to Mike, got her a cameo schoolgirl. Oksana Alekseeva she came on the set and going up to the operator of the film Constantine Apryatinu, naively asked, "And when am I going to shoot?" Apryatin made trial, the girl got into the picture. After shooting all the boys secretly told that was a little bit in love with her. Now "Mike" lives in America.
On the role of Professor Gromov, who invented Electronics, have not been many. Professor Rostislav Plyatt, for example, seemed too imposing. Bruno Freundlich - actor immediately after sampling ill. Leonid Bronevoy auditioned, but after his quarrel with the operator of the director decided not to complicate the climate in the team. Hudsovet persuaded to approve of Vladimir Etush - he successfully starred as Karabas-Barabas, but the director felt that Etush was too bright for the role.
Nikolai Grinko just starred in Tarkovsky "Stalker" and his children's film was not interested, but he was a regular actor studio, and he was required to appear in "Electronics". But then he willingly acted with this picture on the creative evenings.
are invited to become an assistant professor Irina Muravyova, but she was too busy schedule; Leah Akhedzhakova was not included in the film because not too good-natured character. And appeared on the samples Lisa Nikischihina so well played together with Grinko, the director once established it.
When the director asked who he sees as the chief of the bandits Stampa, he said: "Louis de Funes" - then an assistant called Anatolia Papanova. But he was busy. Boss was Vladimir Basov. One shot nearly fell. Basov stitched suit three sizes too big, he was angry, and then ordered the terrified costume designer: "The girl takes off his pants!" Barely got into her white jeans, found in the dressing room a black sweater and was pleased with the outfit.
On the role of the mathematics teacher nicknamed Taratar chose Eugene Bulletin. Interestingly, the famous Taratara was a prototype. When Eugene Veltistov wrote his story, he frequented a real physical-mathematical school, where he worked Tanatar teacher, who very much loved his disciples and even to publish a newspaper to "tanatarskom" language - the language of mathematical formulas ... And the Bulletin of Eugene said that he gave his character features of several people: a manner of speaking a little on the nose, he took from Samuel Marshak, a famous jumping gait - the familiar doctor. The character to be so reliable that children from all over the Soviet Union long Bulletin sent letters urging him to work their teacher ...
The members of the crew remember that motorcycle for Urry gave Karachentseva-resident rental Baltic for a lot of money in those days. In addition, he received a salary as a member of the crew. And they took his bike, because it was fancy, and know it "Java" was difficult.
At some point, the motorcycle owner decided to put forward the condition that he raised the fee. The hope was that the second such find, and have half the picture taken with it. He refused, then he ostentatiously went home, but the administrator group called the traffic cop that simply is not released from the Odessa area.
It turns out Torsuevy brothers were in the cinema thanks to the school head teacher. One day she came to class to class and said in a stern voice: "Torsuevy, go to change me." I must say that Volodya and Yuri were not present for the school, were carried out for them rowdy manners, so that one could expect from such a call just anything. When the brothers came to her room, the head teacher handed him a summons in which it was pointed out when and where to appear for fotoproby. Then it turned out that a film studio called in different schools: looking for twin brothers. Torsuevy were 386 pair.
Yura and Volodya was repeatedly asked why they chose the director. They believe that this happened because their parents brought up, as it is necessary to educate the boys. The brothers played hockey and soccer, skated, rode on a motorcycle, went in for sports. Jura played guitar, sax, Volodya. Both played in the school theater. they were not at school never superficial resemblance. From the first day the brothers put him in different parts of the class and never neither teachers nor children should not be confused. And besides, the boys were not so similar. Even the birthmark only Yura and Volodya it stuck on the set. The similarity used later twice. On going to college Jura "entrusted" to his brother to take him a story and essay. And once more the brothers had to get medical help for a leisure trip. Jura did not exist in Moscow, Volodya with a difference in half an hour and in different pants went to the same doctor. It turned out that in 30 minutes the patient was taller by two centimeters and harder on a few kilos.
After the brothers learned of the film that is glory. Were pleasant and unpleasant moments. Somewhere in half a year after the premiere, and by the time "The Adventures of Electronics" is already three times as shown on television, the twins went to the Bolshoi Theater. During the intermission, a woman came up to him and asked: "Is that you playing? ..". Yura immediately replied: "No, it's not us." And she says. "Well, anyway Even if you do not give me an autograph." Jura is usually dumped a book signing at Volodya. Once he signed a paper on it, pressed in its one angle to another Yura and Syroezhkin electronics disrupted beginning of the second action for twenty minutes.
Letters from fans Torsuevy received bags. Now they say that you have read all messages, but to answer all failed. The day turned out to write 20-25 letters. Some impressionable "fans" live side by side. And they bring trouble. Remember what was Syroezhkin in the film? Bully! And we paid for it brothers. For a long time, if in their neighborhood occurred any trouble, I have always been an old woman who claimed police did it Syroezhkin. And the police came to the apartment to Torsuevym.
The phenomenal success of the film Twins explain that it was the first movie where the kids were playing on their own. They played themselves. The director did not press and allowed to argue with him. Volodya could tell him, for example: "How do you know how to talk to children in twelve years you also - fifty I know it better?". And the director agreed with the twelve-year boy. And yet - it is very important that the adult actors, stars, and talked with their children on an equal footing.
The shooting lasted for eight months. The boys lived alone, in a strange city - the film was shot in Odessa - in the hotel, worked and received wages. At first they do not understand why all of a sudden become so rich. But then mastered: spend money on ice cream, lemonade, trips to the park ... and went to school in a taxi. Then it is a pleasure worth a ruble. A significant do not buy.
Another fact about "Electronics", when Ressi bites at the muzzle of the pistol. The shooting was fun. They were bought in the "Children's World" two guns, one sawed off the barrel ahead of time in order to replace the dog after the jump to the viewer the impression that it is the dog bites the barrel. During rehearsals and shooting takes all members of the group take turns bad voices asked: "Chingiz, do you want chicken?" - that the dog reacted to the dreamy whining - then at articulating this whining recorded speech. Finally came to the scene with a gun nibbles. Chingiz on the second double jump and actually bites into the barrel of a gun at. Next Karachentsovu did not have to play a surprise: his eyes bulged themselves, he said mechanically, his text: "Why did you ate a weapon?", And then climbed into the jaws of Chingiz to pull splinters - God forbid, dog choke. Director Konstantin Bromberg huddled in hysterics: a double screwed! Crew members consoled that everything turned out well, but as Nick climbed into the dog's mouth, perfectly cut off during installation. In this survey turned, the more that is left of a gun - a sawed off, and the second ate. And it is this film entered double.
In 2005, Vladimir Torsuev, who plays Electronics, said that the film's director Konstantin Bromberg, who now lives in the US, wrote the continuation of history - the action takes place in it in our time, and Sergei and E are adults. The new 45-series film were interested both American and European companies, there was a preparation, conducted negotiations with Channel - to participate in the filming and Russian TV. Unfortunately, this project still can not hear anything, but fans of all ages believe and hope to see again on the screens of their favorites, especially since none of the guys who starred in the movie "The Adventures of Electronics", a professional actor did not. Is it irony or outbreak of crisis of the system that destroyed our cinema so that in all the years since perestroika, not shot as iconic and loved all the congregation of films as it was then withdrawn.
