Did You Know?
Most music bands in the film are played by musicians popular in Russia but their image and the songs they sing in the film differ from how they are known to the public. In one scene, Kamil is outraged by the music played on the ship by the band "Dym nad vodoy" and asks them, "Can't you play something better?!" The band, whose name means "Smoke over the Water" or "Smoke on the Water", are played by the Russian rock band Bi-2
. The song they play first is in the genre of the so-called "Russian chanson", criminal songs not typical for Bi-2. After Kamil speaks to them, they start playing Bi-2's song "Polkovniku nikto ne pishet", which was a huge hit in Russia. See more
