Fedor Bondarchuk: 'Stalingrad annoyed a lot of people'

13 February 2014 12:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Russian director's new war epic Stalingrad is mesmerising – but as a prominent Putin supporter, it is his politics that have attracted the most attention

After Fedor Bondarchuk's 2005 Afghanistan war film The 9th Company marked his coming of age, Russian journalists gave the young director the cinematic equivalent of the Persil test. They knocked up a video putting scenes from the movie side by side with ones from his father Sergei's 1975 second world war classic They Fought for Their Country. "I have never tried to copy him," says Bondarchuk Jr, "but I was absolutely shocked because they were 100% the same camera angles, the same type of editing, the same sequence of frames."

History seems to like doing that cyclical thing with the 46-year-old Russian director. His father was a Soviet-era cultural titan whose seven-hour adaptation of War and Peace was the world's most expensive film project in the 1960s. »
