Surrealistic take on the short novel by the great Russian and Ukrainian writer Gogol, filled with healthy humor.
Did You Know?
Made for an ultra-short films nomination of 10th International Irpen Film Festival, this short film is originally an improvisation on the set of the first feature film by Nikolay Yeriomin
which also will include character Dyadya Vasya (Uncle Vasya). See more
End credits include such in-jokes as:
- Editor... What editor? Ahm that's too Nikolay Yeriomin.
- Composer escaped (referring to the absence of music in the film). After that credit everything fades to black for a few seconds, suggesting that the film ended, but suddenly credits continue.
- Stuntman - Askold Tutylopydirskiy. There are no stunts in the film, but Askold Tutylopydirskiy is a recurring unseen character in Nikolay Yeriomin's fiction.
- Vasya - Yaroslav Kozak. Vasya - is a short form of the name Vasili(y) and a name of his character, Dyadya (Uncle) Vasya, but it's also sometimes referred as a slang word to some kind of amateur everyman who's not known by name (e.g. Vasya with a blowtorch while there is a bad blowtorch work and no one knows who's the author).
- Fool - A.Tutylopydirskiy (Askold Tutylopydirskiy character, which appears in most of Nikolay Yeriomin works and planned to be in all of them).
- Scapegoat - Dj.Stolen (J. Stolen, a reference to the fact that this name is an indicator of archive footage used.
