Shooting several times found themselves in jeopardy, and Druzhinin doubt the end result, but it has exceeded all expectations. Despite the incredible success with the audience, some actors felt the film its failure.
A novel about a midshipman came to Svetlana Druzhininoj back in 1983 wrote his Sorotokina Nina - an engineer by training, college teacher. The novel was handwritten, as in any publishing house do not accept it for publication, and invited the director Sorotokina use it to write the script for the film. The manuscript for a long time lay at home Druzhininoj until it did not pay any attention to her husband and son.
cadets were to play the other actors: Yuri Moroz was approved for the role of Alyosha Korsak, Oleg Menshikov offered reincarnated as Sasha Belov, and the role of Nikita Oleneva director planned to shoot his son Michael Mukasey. Druzhinin she wanted to appear in the image of Anna Bestuzheva and Marina Zudina viewers could see in the role of Sophia.
The first refused the role of Yuri Moroz - he had completed the training director's course and had to remove the thesis. Oleg Menshikov, too, was gone, and the director had to find other actors for these roles. Starring in several episodes, picture left Zudina and the role Bestuzheva Druzhinin she refused, deciding to combine the profession of the director and the actress would be too difficult.

I felt the glances, as if someone else took place. Miracle - we have become popular. But in fact, "Midshipmen" - a sham, I would say, the history of plush ... I think the picture is not very successful, and their participation in it - random. "Midshipmen" I personally use and have not brought to my acting career to a certain extent put an end: the serious roles after such works do not offer. Before this film I played a variety of characters: scum, drug addicts, lovers ... And then I began to offer the role of quiet, lean, smooth boy. In general, the role of Oleneva I simply crushed. "

Director Svetlana Druzhinin and cameraman Anatoly Mukasey come up with a nice romantic scene - shot through the branches, leaves. I run towards Alyosha, run, run, birch trees, bushes - and inadvertently run out of frame. Take after take, the film goes. Then I work a rope tied by the leg, put the camera in the middle, and I was allowed as a pony in a circle.
