No one expected from the director of the first Soviet blockbuster "Pirates of the twentieth century" by Boris Durov release melodrama, but he explained his decision by the fact that once again decided to make a film about the power of good, which does not necessarily have to be "with his fists," as in "Pirates of the twentieth Ages ":" I wanted to make a film about conquering almost incredible love that would be a moral example for the youth ... for the sake of a loved one, for love Lida comes from the village, he condemns himself to not very affectionate welcome not who called her when -That insulted Sergei, then e st, in fact, makes the feat of forgiveness, a feat of love, do not need anything in return, except for happiness to be a support for her dear person.

The "Pirates" starring the idol of Soviet Women Nikolai Eremenko, and Durov thought about inviting him to the role of the handsome Sergei Vatagin, captured the hearts of Lida Tenyakova. However, he came to the conclusion that all the main characters must still play a little-known actors. Assistants was tasked to find a type of young Urbanski. To do this, we made a casting among students of theater schools. When his turn came, Sergei Varchuk, directed at first did not even look at him, until he asked a standard question about whether he likes the script. The young actor has puzzled him with her boldness and self-confidence. First he said that he likes the script, not all, and then said that his character reminds him of the king of the provincial dance floor. The director admitted that he even had the working title of the script so on that the actor replied: "So, you and correctly interpret our hero." And I got the part.

But the real test did not even brace for the actor, who interfered with breathing and moving, and control over their own emotions. Years later he recalls with a smile that barely restrained in sex scenes with a partner - actress Tatyana Parkin, which seemed to him very attractive. While "sex", these scenes can be called only in the sense that they actually filmed in bed - otherwise everything was the most chaste and left "out of the equation." The actor now and then strove to hug his partner under a blanket, citing the fact that the audience must believe in what they are - a married couple. Actress is confused, because she had recently married and came to shoot with her husband, and the director had to cool the ardor of Varchuk constant shouts of: "Hand on dressed" Then the actor went to another trick: wanting to prolong this pleasant moment, he gave a signal to the operator and that "suddenly" discovering marriage frame and reshoot the scene take after take.

On the platform built two walls, put in a corner bed, over the heads of the actors sun shone, and around a crowd of onlookers from the village, where the shooting took place. And the most poignant scene helped the actor to play is not a partner, and ... a cat! In the episode where he woke up and suddenly remembered that some misfortune happened to him, lying next to a cat that suddenly staged a "improvisation": she reached out and hugged him like a paw neck. This moment is so touched by all, and so came by the way, after that frame cat applauded the whole crew.

Later, the actress admitted she was shocked when she saw the final version of the film after installation - it turned out that all the episodes in which appeared as March with the other parties and does not look sketchy villain, simply cut out - to contrast with the main character. As a result, the audience did not feel towards her nothing but contempt and resentment, and all their love got her antagonistke, heroine Anastasia Ivanova, who came to the aid of Sergei in a difficult moment.
