Film "Loyalty" - the second full-length work of Nigina Sayfullaeva - became almost the most discussed premiere of "Kinotavr". Someone talked about the longest cunnilingus scene on the domestic screen, someone about the female gaze in directing. But everyone agreed that Russian cinema has long lacked an honest story about sex. We spoke with the leading actress Evgenia Gromova about filming bed scenes and physicality on the big screen.

About the script

When I read the script, it seemed very sensual to me. It was one of the best scripts that have been sent to me. I think this is a story about a common problem in couples - the inability to talk to each other. The fact that people do not speak frankly because of fear for relationships or some kind of personal complexes. They come up with something, and this leads to a lot of troubles. My heroine, instead of talking to her husband, begins to commit desperate acts. But history is good not because, having made them, it repents, but because it chooses the path - right for someone, wrong for someone - which leads her to herself.

About the director

We didn't know Nigina before filming, audition was our first meeting. Of course, I knew who Nigina Sayfullaeva was. About the peculiarities of working with a woman director, I can only say that Nigina is the first director with whom, in addition to professional relations, friendly relations have developed.

About jealousy and betrayal

I have never considered myself to be an over-jealous person. But surprisingly, not long before this project, an incident occurred that prompted me to reflect on this feeling. I read the script in hot pursuit and, it seems to me, understood the heroine.

About casting

When an actor is invited to a casting, he reads a scene, and then the director decides whether the actor has hit or not. I also came and read the scene. The second time I auditioned with my partner Sasha Pale. A couple of days later there was a statement. That is, nothing unusual happened. We were not talking about some frank scenes, rather we were discussing the ground - how jealous I am, what place jealousy occupies in my life. It is clear that intimate scenes are the ones that are better remembered. But in fact, this is not the main thing there.

About partner

We have known Sasha for a long time, at GITIS he studied a course older than me. We both lived in a hostel on Trifonovskaya and knew each other quite closely and well. We did not have a grinding stage, when the actors just get to know each other and try to figure out how to behave with each other.

About bed scenes

Nigina and I did not have any special installations, we worked out the script, step by step, so that both me and her could understand what drives the heroine. We didn't have any conflicts or difficulties, we discussed everything.

The bed scenes were an integral and organic part of the script, so there was no unpleasant or painful sensation on my part. These scenes continued, complemented the story, they contain despair, and audacity, and love. They have drama. First of all, we tried to think about what was happening to people. The question was not whether I would undress or not. And in general, maybe it was I who persuaded Nigina to undress me. But seriously: we speak, we eat - is that natural? And having sex is also natural.

About discomfort

When I played Margarita in the Studio of Theater Arts, there was a scene in which the heroine was going to the ball - and I went out partially naked, as it is written by Bulgakov, this is how the director staged the play. If I was uncomfortable with this, I would simply refuse. I don't do things that make me feel uncomfortable. But when everything is justified, no questions arise.

About sex in the movies

Sokurov has a film "Save and Preserve" based on Madame Bovary, about a woman who is looking for herself, looking for love. This is a clear author's statement on the topic of sexual experiences in a woman's life, the film was shot thirty years ago. I can guess about the reaction he caused. But it is interesting that the echo of this reaction still sounds now, and it sounded after the screening of our film. Nevertheless, there has already been sex in Russian cinema, and now it is, and it will inevitably be.

About the role you want to play

I do not have a dream role, but I am very interested in stories that did not happen to me. For example, historical paintings - even the recent twentieth century, women who died in camps, who survived the Iron Curtain. Everything related to the war or the Great Terror has always worried me very much. We still cannot answer many questions, although the memory of the war and the massacres is still alive in us.

About a movie that you want to make

It would be interesting for me to make a movie about same-sex relationships in Russia, because here it is very difficult with them - just a disaster. If there is an opportunity to leave, people leave. Colleagues say that no one will be filming about this, because it is prohibited by law, but I would open this topic if some scenario appeared. I can't imagine that Adele's Life would be filmed here. But I want to start working on another taboo. I want to make a movie that would prepare us for change.
