These were slightly longer than original cartridge so the pen’s cap does not

[Pen/Pencil Review] The rOtring Skynn Ballpoint Pen in Red – Rhonda Eudaly

Posted by reudaly on August 31, 2015 in Review, writing instruments | ∞

My first blog post on the new computer. Yay! I’m liking the feel of the computer, which segues into this week’s pen review. The rOtring Skynn ball point pen. I’ve used some of the rOtring pencils before – they’re a favorite of Jimmy’s, but this one was different – and I was looking for an inexpensive and different pen to add to an Amazon order. This one popped up.

Since I can only find it online through Amazon and a handful of other retailers like Overstock – I think it’s been discontinued item. This one has an ergonomic design with a wider, squishy rubber grip. I picked up the red barrel pen with silver accents. The barrel has the Skynn name etched into the plastic. The heavy plastic grip wraps the whole barrel and seems very sturdy. The emblem is pressed into the edges of the clip. The signature rOtring ring blends into the red of the barrel. The clip wrap also hides the break in the barrel that lets you replace the ink, to give the design a clean, fluid design.

The Skynn is 5.25” long with the tip retracted and just over 5.5” long with the tip extended. The pen comes with a rOtring Jumbo Mine Giant blue ball point refill. This is Parker-style refill that can be replaced. This is a medium point – which is somewhere around a 1.0mm. Not my favorite – I do see myself writing larger with it, but it doesn’t feel as bulky as some 1.0mm (so it might be closer to a 0.8mm – but doubt it’s thicker than a 0.7mm). The ink is solid and smooth with a good line.

The grip is… different. It’s more bulbous than most ergonomic grips. The squishy rubber takes a bit of getting used to. It’s wider than I’m used to but not necessarily uncomfortably so. I have noticed the rubber collects dirt and grunge. That could be an issue.

The price points are good. The retraction mechanism is solid. The metal cone from the grip to the point is solid and clean. It’s an overall good pen, especially for the economical price – while you can get them if they’re really a discontinued line. Which is what it looks like.

The numbers:
1. How does it work?1 It’s decent. Has a good length and solid mechanism with good ink.
2. Grip and feel0.5 – The extra squishy ergonomic grip is a bit wider than I like, and the feel of the grip takes a little bit to get used to – and it collects dirt. But it’s a solid pen with a decent feel beyond that.
3. Material1 It’s solid. A well-made metal and plastic mix with a huge nod to ergonomics. Nothing feels cheap or easily breakable.
4. Overall Design0.5 – Plastic and metal retractable pen is what it is. It’s a solid pen, but the ability for the grip to attract dirt and grit – as well as the squishy feel isn’t for everyone. A friend called it ‘sticky’. That’s going to be a personal determination.
5. Price Point1 – It does appear to be a close out. According to Amazon the original retail was $25, but they’re selling them between $4 and $7 depending on what website and color you order – for some reason the blue ones are more expensive.

  • The Ultimate Parker Style G2 Refill Buyers Guide

    1 Parker Style G2 Ballpoint Pen Refills

    In 1954 Parker launched their first ballpoint pen and then three years later in 1957 they improved the refill. This was known as a T-ball refill and was revolutionary at that time. It had a tungsten carbide ball with a textured surface that greatly improved the writing experience combined with a new ink formula.

    The design of the new Parker refill was patented, and no other pen manufacturer could copy it. Many years later Parker gave up the patent and it and the design of this refill became an international standard according to ISO standard 12757.

    As you can see from the image above taken from ISO 12757 the G2 refill is the one that was invented by Parker for their Jotter ballpoint pens and hence the name Parker Style G2 refills came about.

    Citadel – as an example of the harmful effects of marijuana.

    Vol 1. Superhero cinema.

    Question: How to put the Commander in the refrigerator?

    Answer: Open the refrigerator. Put the Divisional Commander there. Close the refrigerator.

    The first part ended with the division commander heroically lifting the tank with a rotten piece of wood, and the division commander, in turn, heroically showing the boobs to the dying soldier. This ended the film and we were announced the imminent release of the sequel.The sequel ordered to wait for itself a whole year, but finally it came out. Expectations were off the charts, no joke! The first Russian superhero movie! Moreover, under the direction of the Tsar of All Cinematography Nikita Sergeevich Mikhalkov himself.

    Question: How to put Komdivgol in the refrigerator?

    Answer: Open the refrigerator. Get the Divisional Commander out of there. Put Comdivgol there. Close the refrigerator.

    The actions of the second half of the film develop approximately immediately after the end of the actions of the first film, with the only proviso that it is still not clear: ‘what? where? when? and how? ‘, and therefore the chronology of events turns out to be rather vague.The division commander, as usual, plays the role of a sage, to whom even the chief commanders go to consult about problems, while the division commander continues to work as a nurse, bandaging poor soldiers over his clothes and continuing to show buffers in a shameless way.

    That, by the way, is the whole plot of the film, except for the final scene, where everyone walked with sticks, and then everything exploded. Why did it explode? Because Jaydai Commander used his Jedi powers to blow everything up in the distance.The second film generally differs from the first in that they slightly reduced meat and shit, and the Divisional Commander as his main weapon uses not physical strength and the punishing cross of Orthodoxy, but Jedi telekinesis, as well as the power of his own hidden brutal sexuality, thanks to which every woman instantly wants him, and any man is saturated with respect and admiration for the person of a great man. Modestly.

    There is no script, as such, but there are scriptwriters for which I am very grateful to them, I accept you as you are.

    Particularly amusing was the scene of childbirth, when planes drawn on the computer flew in and began bombing the convoy of the wounded. Bomb – no, not shit, this time with bombs, you just need to look at it. Roughly the same can be said about the half-hour tribute to himself, when the division commander returned to his native house, and everyone was scared and respected. Of all the far-fetched short stories, I liked only the episode when the sorcerer, the son of the great sorcerer (see ‘The Dark World’) stood up for Komdivgol and saved her from an evil fat man.

    Further acting, which comes only from trees and sand. All the rest are doing their number or grimacing, even those who looked good in the first half grimace. The division commander and the division commander got used to the characters, I do not argue, they looked convincing in the role of superheroes. Menshikov and Makovetsky earned 9 grams straight to Moscow with their game, however, like everyone else who was in the frame for more than five seconds.

    The film also contains action, music and Big Buddha Boom, but due to the clumsy hands of those who did all this, everything looks unconvincing and almost imperceptible.

    One gets the feeling that in fact Mikhalkov was filming some kind of fantastic action movie in which he threw his heroes into the past so that they could do good, show their coolness and praise themselves, but for some unknown reason decided to shoot about the war. Double Trouble.

    Vol 2. Opinion.

    All this would be really funny if it weren’t so sad, disgusting and disgusting. I perfectly understand all people out of this world, who in their films do not hesitate to shoot pieces of shit, cuts of cheap porn and other similar stuff that has a place in the trash heap, but which over and over again finds a comfortable place in auteur cinema.And this is normal, because often people from whom such devilry emanates have certain problems with moral values ​​and spiritual organization. And let them continue to shoot films about gay people who have AIDS or cancer (whichever is more relevant), let them continue to admire the scenes of natural rape, perhaps such topics are of wild interest to them, but all this can be taken calmly and with a grin until then, until it crosses a certain line.

    But there is such a thing as ‘absolute immorality’. The worst crime a son can commit is killing his mother. Mikita Nikhalkov with her ‘Burnt by the Sun 2’ is far from the concept of ‘son’ in relation to his Motherland, because the ‘dumb victim of incest’ is much more suitable, but there was an attempt on his life.

    And the point is not even that Nikhalkov openly filmed the dirt and lies, with which he offended the feelings of many viewers, including those who previously considered him an outstanding director, but that he did not give a damn about the day, which symbolizes not so much the Great Victory, how much the greatest tragedy, through which the people went through, to which the director considers himself.I’m not even talking about veterans, of whom there are very few left, whom we must love and endlessly thank for the future, which we gladly ruin and kick, veterans who, in the light of this film, turned out to be nothing but the main lever of earnings for a hypocritical director who is calm took a lump sum from the state and made a film no one needed, although with the same money … We all know that the funds that were allocated for the film would be enough to make life easier for those who fought for us, those who went through fire, a hail of bullets and losses, but in his new life he turned out to be helpless in front of bastards-officials and freaks-neighbors, and now, he is forced to save every penny in order to buy himself half a loaf of bread.While our Grand Duke, Tsar and God of All Russia Mikita Nikhalkov eats off his ruddy cheeks and drools over his new masterpiece, not hesitating to declare ‘The Great Movie about the Great War’, pacing in the frame in the role of a General, a commander and almost the main winner of the Great Patriotic War. It turned out to be an extremely brilliant, rude and shameless hypocrisy.

    The last paragraphs contain a certain amount of profanity and abuse addressed to the main creator, but what about when from the screen many times more profanity, abuse, dirt and shit is poured out? At least I told the obvious truth, because if my text is not really a review, then Citadel is not a film at all.Last time I was kind, putting as much as 4 points, now

    So, before the next anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, Nikita Sergeevich Mikhalkov released into the light of God a continuation of his last year’s monster and again dedicated it to his father, a front-line soldier.You know, if I had a front-line father, I would probably devote something good to him. Or at least something better. Well, not just another anti-Soviet shit movie.

    In my review of the Anticipation, I complained that there is little fighting and those that are done badly. There were also claims to the actual part, doubts were expressed about the mental health of the filmmaker, there were questions about the acting of the main performers and everyone else. I must say that, apparently, I read my words Himself and took into account all these remarks.Don’t believe me? Now I will prove it literally point by point.

    Few hostilities, and those that are disgusting: Nikita Sergeevich resigned himself to the fact that he did not know how to do battle scenes at all and early yapping at the laurels of Sergei Bondarchuk and Steven Spielberg. Therefore, there is exactly one fight in the film, which takes place at the very beginning in 7-8 minutes. Then the maximum that you will see is the bombing of the convoy and that’s it. The big boom bar that takes place at the end is hardly a fight, from my point of view. By the way, the Soviet soldiers in the film directly kill exactly one German, while the Germans lay in dozens of ours for a sweet soul.

    Claims to the factual (historical) part: here, to be honest, it is more complicated. I am not such a major specialist who, from the very first viewing, will reveal all inaccuracies in form, technique, details, and so on. Moreover, for this, the film, or its individual moments, need to be reviewed, and now I will agree to this only for money (no less than the cost of the ticket). But, nevertheless, here’s the catch. Towards the end of the film, it turns out that the action time is somewhere around September 1943. Prior to this, Menshikov’s hero tells Kotov, they say, as he told Stalin that without people like the Iron Hand they cannot win the war.However, Stalingrad and the Kursk Bulge are behind, the Germans are retreating. We would have done it without him. And an additional question arises: without any “such” as Kotov? Where in the films is shown what a former divisional commander is a wonderful commander and organizer? Where is he in the course of the saga, before the presentation of the lieutenant-general’s shoulder straps, effectively leads people, achieving success and proving that he is a general (albeit a former one), and not a horse-radish from the mountain? Nowhere. The most you can milk is a few ‘tips from the seasoned’. In general, the division commander does not pull more than a sergeant.Moreover, in the course of the narrative it turns out that the divisional commander is legendary not for bold maneuvers and crushing victories, but for punitive actions.

    Doubts about the mental health of the filmmaker: without hesitation, at this point Nikita Sergeevich decided to quickly bring me out of a state of doubt into a state of complete conviction. Yes, we are dealing with a sick person who is in dire need of help. Either we need to steal Barin from the estate, place him in the Central Archives of the Ministry of Defense and force him to read the archives for food, or I myself will change places with him and everyone will be in the black: Mikhalkov at the Faculty of History learns that there is such a science as history and, in general, about existence Science, Reason and Logic, in his place I will not shoot anything and all of Russia will benefit from this.Frankly, I simply do not have the strength to describe the entire schizoid nature of the Citadel’s plot (especially family-rear collisions). Here, figuratively speaking, a complete set – drunken generals, throwing corpses at the Germans, barrage detachments smacking on their own, the cannibal Stalin, NKVD bitches, civilized Europeans. In addition to everything that has been feeding us for many years, several new products have been added – the birth of the fruit of the Russian-German alliance under the bombardment (and they named him Joseph Vissarionovich, damn it), the destruction of a stronghold of the German defense because of a spider, a machine gun with an optical sight, singing songs in a minefield, civilians at the front armed with sticks, presenting a pair of concrete boxes on a hill as an indestructible defense.All this is such nonsense (and God forbid if this is half of examples of idiocy) that you want to grab your head and kill yourself right in the cinema. Or get drunk in the trash, following the example of most of the heroes of the film, because they thump in ‘Burnt by the Sun 2: Citadel’ everywhere and on every occasion. Honestly, by the end of the film one gets the impression that according to Mikhalkov, a Russian person is a biting drunk who plays the accordion or button accordion, I don’t know. Even Himself, before the attack, does not disdain to blow a couple of alcohol flasks into one snout.

    Questions about acting: if in most cases in Anticipation she was simply inexpressive (often disgusting), then this time Nikita Sergeevich, so that this question no longer bothers me, took the acting game to hell at the very beginning and not until the very end got out. Praiseworthy concern, but instead he put – screams, squeals, howling, grimacing, pointing with his tongue, bulging eyes. And you won’t figure it out, whether in front of you are venerable actors who were unlucky with directing, or specially trained pigs? Or drunken clowns?

    However, if you think that there is only bad in the film, then you are wrong.No, you’re not mistaken. Those two seconds, during which the tortured viewer thinks that Kotov is dead, does not count. It’s still a complete, absolute failure. The story is uninteresting, predictable. The plot is uninteresting, idiotic. Everything that Mikhalkov wanted to show and tell through ‘Burnt by the Sun’, as for me, is just a lie, bullshit, multiplied by the delirium of a madman. Another slap in the hearts and souls of all who appreciate the sacrifice of the Soviet people. Another disrespect for the people who crushed Nazism.Another example of a terrible, suffocating, irrational hatred for a deceased state and deceased people. Therefore, you can end this review by quoting yourself:

    ‘In the end, I am ashamed. I am ashamed that such a film was made in the country that once defeated the brown plague. I am ashamed in front of my ancestors, who were poured with shit, and I can not do anything to the bastard who did it. I am ashamed in front of every living and dead front-line soldier, for the same reason. I am ashamed in front of my children, who will see this, before generations who are destined to grow up under the showers of mud and streams of shit spewed out by everyone who gets to our Victory.

    I can’t even imagine that Soviet soldiers did such a bad thing to Mikhalkov, that he did them like that. Nikita Sergeevich, if he sees and understands the war this way, is not worthy of the title of Citizen or Human.

    No fucking appreciation for this movie. ‘

    Exocet

    Penalties – a double dose of alcohol!

    Imagine that in a parallel reality, in the province of N.lives of the great director and honored master of budgets Mikhail Nikitkov.

    If the Germans are fighting in the idyll of the ‘Sharman’ marshmallow ad, to the Schubert waltz and the crunch of a French roll, then everything is not so with us. Headquarters tavern! All the generals are drunk as hell. Crumpled shoulder straps, unbuttoned shape. Debosh, fights, swearing, women, in general, a gentleman’s set. A drunken, splashed major general receives a reproach from another drunken drunken officer, they say, they gave you the rank, and you, so and so, promised to take the citadel for the holiday of May 1, Workers’ Day, but did not take it! The Major General, of course, cannot bear the insult and answers, barely moving his lips: what the hell, I took this and that, but you couldn’t! Weaklings, what is it.Further verbal skirmish and kicks of softer officers, who are already lying dead in the pose of a starfish, the drunken major general hits the table with his fist, gets up and begins to command. So, I’ll show you how to fight, since you are such freaks with the letter M, you don’t respect me. Write down the order: now raise the penalty box, and let them attack head-on. Preparation time – 1 hour. Penalties – a double dose of alcohol. And to adjust the detachments. The gun in the face of the performer eliminates the bewilderment.No questions asked.

    The order of the accounting headquarters is communicated to the still sober penalty box. ‘Bye’ until the moment the alcohol tanks are brought in. Ordered to plump! Still ordered to go on the attack. Divisional Commander Kotov waves a steel glove. One of the penalty box pushes a heartfelt speech. I’m not going anywhere! Better to be killed by their own people than the Germans – it’s a shame in front of the Germans! It’s a shame – not a shame, but a drunken offensive led by drunken generals should be. Suddenly, the NKVD’shnik Mitya arrives and starts chasing the divisional commander Kotov right along the trench, pushing the soldiers apart before the attack.The divisional commander, realizing that it is impossible to hide from the NKVD’shnik Mitya, jumps out and a trench and unauthorized (!) Runs into the attack, raising some of the soldiers ahead of time. Drunken generals are shocked – let’s go ahead of time! Firing a flare for everyone to go. The NKVD officer Mitya rushes after the divisional commander Kotov, then suddenly (!) Realizes that he is in the attack, trying to return, to which the contagion detachments begin to smack from the Maxim. I’m an NKVD officer! – I don’t care, not a step back! The NKVD’s assistant Mitya bursts into the headquarters and starts yelling that his boss has rushed to the attack, he is being shot at there, you see… in short, the attack would be canceled. The bukhoi major general does not quite understand how a high-ranking NKVD officer (!) By mistake (!) Joined the attack of the penalty box (!). Indeed, what is there not to understand …

    Further, everything is boring. The Citadel is worse than Anticipation (in itself an ‘achievement’) in that it came out much more dull and consists of a cocktail of snot and tears a little more than completely. I would define a new genre – an illustrated encyclopedia of incompetence, stupidity and hysteria.

    Again, Nikitkov accumulated all the known horror stories of the era.Stalin mentions how the division commander Kotov in the 19th hacked a priest with a saber, in the 20th he shot the whites, in the 21st he ordered the release of poison gas against the Tambov peasants. Stalin probably thought it necessary not to mention how Kotov sank barges with the intelligentsia and shot at officers of the Baltic Fleet, so as not to rinse the division commander’s conscience too much.

    Sometimes, however, it seems to me that Nikitkov, for all his ‘revealing’ motives, is a latent Stalinist. It seems to converge with pathological monarchism.Nikitkov seems to be jealous of Iosif Vissarionovich, wants to confront him on equal terms (the poster for the film shows both as characters of a fighting game). Perhaps he wants to appear to them. In terms of the scale of the individual. Loves, but does not know how to show this love. Or afraid to show it openly.

    The director clearly loves the scenes where the division commander Kotov communicates with Stalin. Having wet the leader’s face in the cake in Anticipation (albeit in a dream), the divisional commander Kotov sits quietly, clutching his balls, in front of the real Stalin. They talk like close friends, slowly sip tea, eat walnuts.Stalin is shown with great love and thoroughness, a lot of attention is paid to his every movement, every word. Stalin is verified to the smallest detail. He walks around the office, approaches Kotov from the side, leans against the back of the chair, bends down beside him. Remember the scene from ‘300’ about Xerxes and Leonidas, which ‘They are not afraid of my whip …’? Nikitkov, undoubtedly, would very much like to communicate with Stalin in person, turn gray at the same table, discuss the fate of entire countries and millions of people over a cup of tea. But, alas, not destiny.

    ‘They planted you in order to release you in time,’ says the wisdom of the mountains in a fatherly way. Kotov listens anxiously, instantly forgives all insults, understands that the prodigal son has returned. And before that, all the Anticipation and almost the entire Citadel of the wings of the NKVD obscenities. But the leader … the leader cannot be wrong, he is above all this. Like the king … above the revolution. The ‘crowned’ personalities are higher than the people, which clearly follows from the slavish humility of the division commander Kotov and Nikitkov himself in one person before the highest power.

    ‘Bypassing the citadel and waiting for surrender is right strategically, but wrong politically,’ continues the leader.It is supposedly necessary to influence the deviators and parasites in the occupation, so 15 thousand must go on the attack, which will be a sign to the rest. For which the divisional commander Kotov is given back shoulder straps, promoted in rank and entrusted with the operation. Rags to riches again. Kotov immediately agrees, does not even argue. He emphatically finishes his tea and asks for more. No threats, they are alone without witnesses in a dark room. Stalin’s conviction is softer and more diplomatic than even the speeches of the famous Don Corleone from The Godfather with his “offer, which is difficult to refuse.”

    Moloch of the Stalinist NKVD milled the fate of the ‘little man’ Kotov, but Stalin himself rehabilitated him, making him great.

    On reflection, I came to the conclusion that Nikitkov hates the USSR, but loves Stalin. I’m sure he would be happy to play it, but either he is afraid or the guts are thin. Perhaps both. To be precise, he likes the aesthetics of tsarism, but the will and scale of the tsar must be Stalinist.

    Well, then the familiar bagpipes. It is not even the Red Army men with cartridges without rifles (as in “The Enemy at the Gates”) and not penalty boxers in gymnasts, but musicians, artists and other intelligent-looking ordinary people in civilian clothes, all armed with wooden bars, go to the attack.And again the noble Germans (‘I can’t look at this. I am an officer of the Wehrmacht, not an executioner!’) Against the Russian barbarians.

    And again a sea of ​​stupidity. The citadel blows up because of the stupidity of one German, running to papa through a minefield, etc. There is also a ‘boob’ (film terminology) in the amount of 1 piece. and the ass (and front) of Menshikov.

    Verdict: no, no need. Fortunately, Mikhail Nikitkov is from another reality, we don’t have a director with that name and surname …

    There was an Oscar-winning film Burnt by the Sun (pretty good, by the way).Then, in 2010, there was a sequel called ‘Anticipation’. The sequel turned out to be unexpectedly nasty, in addition, it poured cisterns of dirt on the Great Patriotic War.

    And now ‘The Citadel’, the last film about the division commander Kotov. Well, what can I say, the film came out even worse than ‘Anticipation’. Again, mud is pouring on our soldiers of the Great Patriotic War, again insane situations …

    SUDDENLY the penal battalion with the division commander Kotov (who has been sticking there for the second year !!!) turns out to be near the Citadel. If anything, the Citadel is a model of a German fortress, however, one machine gun is real there.The model must be protected from our soldiers – so the Germans fenced off with a minefield. And as for the flashes in the embrasures, they probably blinked with flashlights … Well, in any case, the Citadel gives the impression of a layout.

    And now Kotov and the penal battalion storm this Citadel at the beginning and at the end of the film. In the middle, he drives around with Mitya, gets to Stalin and finds a luxurious uniform. Add excerpts from the first film and scenes with the division commander’s daughter – that’s the whole plot of ‘Citadel’.

    What I didn’t like:

    – a historical component.I remember the director said that he would show the whole truth about the war (and someone was led). Dirty lies mixed with the fantasies of a drug addict about two-thirds of the film. Don’t believe me? Turn on your head or shoot with a grenade launcher.

    – ours and the Germans. In short: we are all drunkards, idiots and just a gray mass. In general, what Goebbels said. But the Germans are humane, they cannot look at ours, because they look bad. Throughout the entire film, the thought runs like a red thread: we won, because the Germans (good soul!) Allowed themselves to be defeated, because they could no longer see how we were fighting…

    – actors. There are only three of them: Tikhonov, Ilyin and Churikova. The rest simply worked off the fee, annoying inarticulate sounds, passed off as replicas. Nadia Mikhalkova, fortunately, was not enough, and half of the scenes with her participation were from the first film.

    – plot. With flaws, with bloopers, boring, drawn-out. Honestly, you can’t take him seriously.

    – Orthodoxy. Fortunately, Orthodoxy is not mentioned in the film. But the introduced cheat code for immortality was preserved.Either the sniper will receive an order not to shoot, then the mine will not explode, then something else will not work there. In general, the Kotov family had to be parachuted into Berlin so that they would kill the entire leadership of the Reich there, why should these cheaters be in vain where to hang out.

    However, I liked something. Namely: nature. Cut it out of the movie and show it separately. And, perhaps, a hint of today’s derailment from the army.

    After watching, the question suddenly arose: why was such a movie made? For whom? I only have two options:

    1.See if there are still fans of Mikhalkov;

    2. Are the people ready to believe the lies about their past?

    The first option showed: there are fans and even performed the second option. It is good that there are not so many of them …

    As a result, a disgusting movie, both in staging and in content, in addition desecrating our own story.

    The incredible happened.Nikita Mikhalkov made a film that is almost impossible to criticize and which is difficult to get angry with. And the point here is not that the film is a miracle, and the director jumped over his head. No, the reasons are somewhat different.

    Reason one. ‘The Citadel’ is a logical continuation of the ‘Anticipation’ and inherits all its advantages (if any) and disadvantages (long list of full list). Yes, at first glance, the films differ both in the plot and in the presentation of the material, but nevertheless they have much more similarities than differences.Both here and there we meet unnatural, fantasy heroes who perform illogical and ambiguous actions from the point of view of a normal person (for example, Kotov sniffing out his pursuer, Nadia’s running through a minefield without much harm to health, Comrade Stalin’s infernal plans, etc.) .). Secondly, both films are characterized by a devil-may-care attitude towards real history – moreover, in Citadel this antihistoricality is brought to the limit and is used as the basis of the plot. Further, the author’s extremely controversial moral and political position is common to the two films – for example, his obvious sympathy for the Wehrmacht troops (just remember phrases like ‘I will be ashamed of the Germans’ from the lips of a Soviet soldier or ‘I am an officer, not an executioner’ from the mouth of a Nazi).Well, purely technical flaws also migrated to Citadel from Anticipation – here, in particular, it is necessary to mention the excessively theatrical performance of most of the actors, as well as the operator’s inexplicable love for close-ups.

    But such a secondary nature of the Citadel in relation to Anticipation greatly softens the process of perception of the film: what angered and annoyed in last year’s film already seems familiar and familiar in the new one, and therefore I absolutely do not want to criticize it all a second time …Mikhalkov can afford self-repetitions, but I cannot.

    Reason two. Citadel is just a boring and uninteresting movie. It is chaotic and inconsistent, but this chaos is not from an excess of energy, but from a lack of it. As a result, the plot sags, obsessively revolves around the same details and characters (among them a mosquito, a white mouse, a rubber crane, and of course the gallant General Kotov, occupy an important place). But this is not even bad – the bad thing is that there is no special meaning in the film: neither moral nor historical.Mikhalkov put a great many symbols into the picture, which, probably, were supposed to give the whole work meaning and ideology, but these symbols do not add up to some kind of harmonious system, so it seems that they appeared in the film from helplessness: for example, having failed to clearly express the idea that historical events often depend on completely random factors, the director decided to act quite literally and primitively – he inserted a spider-hero into the plot, preventing the sniper from shooting.This technique would fit into any military-themed sitcom, but in a big movie it looks extremely ridiculous.

    But all this, by and large, does not matter. After all, if there is no point, then there is nothing to be surprised at, nothing to criticize. After all, you must admit that it would also be inappropriate and even unethical to criticize the stream of consciousness of a mentally unhealthy person, and it is precisely this stream of consciousness that the new Mikhalkov film looks like most of all.

    That is why Citadel does not evoke any desire to criticize, but causes only sluggish bewilderment and an inexplicable feeling of shame.Although who knows, maybe for the sake of this feeling everything was started?

    I’m standing, it means, on a mine …

    Last year, even the legless man managed to kick the supposed sequel to Burnt by the Sun.Nikita Sergeevich did not like this oil painting very much, and then he created the miraculous image of the savior of all Runet – Besogon. There were fierce disputes until the wafer rolls were gnawed in half, whether it was a PR or a pair, but before the people had time to make the director a friend, the Citadel was being played in cinemas. Hamsters, who are escaping from metabolic shock, convicted under the article for Internet masturbation and sentenced to life sitting at the computer, are again throwing their most important statements into the common cauldron of folly and indignation.

    Mikhalkov tries to squeeze all possible and impossible juices out of the 1994 picture, but in response only cranberries gush out of all the cracks, which incapacitates the filigree design of the Oscar-winning ribbon. Suddenly out of nowhere in the catharsis of absurdity, miraculously survived divisional commander_penal_general Sergei Kotov, his hysterical wife Marusya, for reasons unknown to nature, turned from Dapkunaite to Tolstoganova, and daughter Nadia, whom no one killed, but she also escaped. Probably from the pioneer camp.Once quite a Chekist, Uncle Mityai becomes Basilio the Cat, the lot of his atrocities will be pouring a laxative into a compote for a preschooler. And now there are such an abundance of these obscurantist mutilations of images in a freshly baked dilogy that it is just right to jump into the river, having previously tied kilograms of blanks to your feet. Just think, here’s how you can decorate your own garden? It turns out to be very simple. For a handful of euros.

    It would be appropriate to assume that this is the director’s view through the rosy prism of his political convictions and secret fantasies.However, if at the same not very beloved by Mikhalkov Tarantino they burn Hitler in the cinema, beat the fascists with a bat, and scare them with a Jewish bear, then there it naturally fits into the parodic, too bloody and simply corporate style of the creator. But if the movie stands out for, God forbid, a chronicle of the war years, and in the frame there are author’s techniques with the smell of second-rate Hollywood, then you should not be surprised at the spitting in the direction of the film. Even if we close our eyes to the “modest” slogan “Anticipation” and watch a movie as a work of art, as a non-trivial self-expression in the end, what will we see? Madness.Superhero movie, or a cheap bullet with cheaters. As you wish.

    The Citadel has done without the already classic show me your titties, but like the previous picture, it loads with hypertrophied symbolism. Either as a joke, or in all seriousness. From the series that if they had fought with Napoleon, the French would have walked with a mustache and a plate of frog paws. The devil is not so terrible as he is painted, and so terrible is Kotov, who is here both a Swiss, and a reaper, and a gamer on a pipe. What a versatility of the image – from the rustic Hugh Hefner to Fred Kruger, and a little to Moses.He’s also a division commander, well, it doesn’t matter. Both tapes generally give off a great absurdity. The climbing scene with sticks is so enchanting that the viewer is unable to control his body. One gets the impression that this is a transfer to the screens of fables, ditties, oral folk art of the northern peoples – anything, just not a holistic plot with a clear logical narration. Such is the pagan heresy, when they still believed in three whales holding the Earth. Definitely from there.

    Banishing Besogon

    Note: it will be rude!

    In the days of rattling antiquity, when dinosaurs roamed about our meadows at full speed, and flat-faced wood goats hooted in the forests under the bushes, somewhere across the field a whole ‘Horde’ rushed, filming the ‘Citadel’.It seems like people are like people, but for some reason not in vests, but in skins, instead of machine guns – stones and clubs, zero in the eyes, rats in general started up in the brain. In addition to such a cool ‘Bern’, the guys also managed to get into a trouble, having lit up copy-paste stories about a certain blond freak who walked for an hour and forty in the not so distant past, and swore at some incomprehensible ‘Massaraksh’ (turn away the other way, I will say : I’m talking about a movie poster, if cho).

    Frankly, I didn’t think about anything else either: it turns out that the film takes its origins in 2001, when one such fatherly (so to speak) toy came out… it doesn’t matter that it’s about something else, it’s important – the name also contains the word ‘Citadel’, it is the same fossil as the film, and it was just as forgotten about a month after its release (well, flew by, with whom can not be?).

    But our dear master (‘Like Chekhov and Tolstoy!’) Goggled for eight years, squatting down a golden egg in the archives. With all this, our dear master forgot to cut out links and sources. And what? I personally am a picky person, give me evidence, ‘that we didn’t we, but we were sitting there and there. ”Well, okay … You can’t find fault with the upper classes of the nobility – they are besogony … (oh …)

    Stupidly, let’s move on to the film itself. However, writing about him is boring, but the wagon and the small cart are furious. The historical accuracy of the tape ended where Mikhalkov ended – it was never in his films. It seems that comrade Barin used the books of the sectarian Fomenko with his ‘New Anthology of History’, in which Khan Batu and Dmitry Donskoy have one face, and Khorezm and Kostroma are generally the same city (oh…). Hence the question – in what archives did you sit, Mr. Director?

    Further – it turns out that we did not really fight. In the trenches, the chupa-chups drowned out, and instead of us some trainees who had never seen a weapon in their eyes were shooting. They ran across the field in clothes without buttons, pressed moonshine on the heap, threw their hats at the Germans, and at night they drove scary fairy tales (in the style of Uwe Boll). At the center of each episode is v.i.p. – Comrade Kotov, whom neither the torpedo nor the bullets take. They cut, beat, rude, and he, like a true batman-boo, gets up and moves on.

    From time to time, the viewer is treated to two-dimensional battlefields, where the entire main budget of the picture has been merged. In a funny shape, the tanks fraternize with an incomprehensible porridge of steel (sort of like German), a mishmash is created, everywhere there is blood, intestines, someone’s bare breasts (oil painting – ‘Tomorrow on the Grass’), dirt, nothing is visible … But Barin, like a real Rambo of the 40s of the XX century throws everyone around, as if hanging out in the gym at night.

    The superfilm set is diluted with the most ingenious dialogues a la anecdote out of topic.Cardboard characters who are either communists or aliens (but in earflaps!), Camera work in the style of ‘vodka-boobs-close-up’, the complete absence of an artistic component (not counting the elite copy-paste poster), and on top of everything else, a prize in the nomination ‘The most old-school fat troll about the Great Patriotic War’. In the trash!

    And now the question: where to find the very substance that expels Besogon? And then he makes excuses to us, they say, ‘I am not me, and the bun is not mine,’ but after all… He lies and does not blush. And what, ‘we are sculpting the hotel, crumbling the soil, but the fact that the film turned out to be not that none, but none at all, is none of our business. We have an order – ‘Not a step back!’. So we stood … stood … ‘

    And all the other bayans-babayans. Stalin is evil and disgusting, the Nazis are little angels, and the USSR is a vat with a brown substance (let’s put it bluntly – with shit!), Which did not fight, but was played with human lives. We put it equal – here is the ‘Citadel’ – a log horror movie, with a three-meter fence of clichés, deceitful, and smelling like an order from the top.

    Nikita take pictures, don’t take pictures!

    The Second World War is one of the most terrible events not only in the 20th century, but in the entire history of our land.How many innocent people died on the battlefields, how many did not return to their homes, how many did not wait for liberation from German concentration camps. This number is counted not in thousands, and not in hundreds of thousands, but in millions. It’s just scary … And it’s not for nothing that nowadays so many films on military topics are being shot. It is so difficult to remember their number at once. But it is even more difficult to remember that the military films are really high-quality, which really deserve attention from the viewer. Was the blockbuster “Burnt by the Sun 2: The Citadel” one of them? Definitely not! On the contrary, this is one of the worst, if not even the worst, war-themed film adaptation I have ever seen.Now I will try to explain why I did not like this film from Nikita Mikhalkov so much.

    The main disadvantage of “Citadel” is the plot, or rather its complete absence. At first, it even became a little interesting for me, because it was about a real war, about the capture of the so-called German citadel. Pretty good idea to start the movie. It was here that the creators were given the opportunity to demonstrate to the audience spectacular scenes of battles, explosions, the heroism with which the soldiers went into battle, not being afraid to give their lives for their homeland.In principle, everything went on like this, but as soon as the atmosphere heated up to the maximum BAM, and all actions move to a completely different place. It was such drastic changes that did not finish me off throughout the film. There were moments in the plot, throwing out which the film would not lose at all, but on the contrary won. And why not be silent – the script turned out to be very, very boring. After an hour of viewing, there was a desire to simply take and turn off “Burnt by the Sun 2: The Citadel” and watch some other good movie.Sharp, unpredictable plot twists are completely absent. This fact also does not betray the color of the motion picture. Let the writers forgive me, but I give 2 points for their robot.

    As for the actors, I have no particular complaints about them. Here, as in other war films, an ingenious game was not required, which the cast, by the way, did not show. I don’t have any questions to Nikita Mikhalkov as an actor, but as a director there are many. In this film, I did not notice a single well-developed character.All of them are somehow ambiguous, not interesting. Throughout the entire film, the viewer does not feel sympathy for any character, does not worry about his future fate. The only one who, in my opinion, deserves warm reviews in his direction, is Roman Madyanov. Yes, he played the secondary, episodic role of the lieutenant colonel at the beginning of the film, but he played it efficiently, coolly, and for that he had a special “thank you”. I will not say that Mikhalkov played absolutely mediocre, no. But I still expected much more from such a great actor.Also, Nadezhda Mikhalkova and Victoria Tolstoganova, Vladimir Ilyin and Dmitry Dyuzhev were not noted for anything special. I will give 6 points for an acting robot, although it should be put even less.

    What, what, and the dialogue in the movie “Burnt by the Sun 2: The Citadel” were simply mediocre. And I’m not exaggerating at all, this aspect of the film was really like that. There was not a single meaningful conversation, but only meaningless phrases from the characters, which significantly spoiled the whole atmosphere of this or that moment.This fact further discouraged all the desire to watch an already failed film. 1 point for dialogues, and then with a huge stretch.

    In principle, there is nothing more to say. In my opinion, the film failed miserably, period. I would like to see Mikhalkov more often in the role of an actor, and not a director, because the first in him turns out much better than the second, and this is a fact.

    I don’t really like military pathos, but it would be better if this “great film about the great war”, the film that was released before May 9, the film that veterans were hoping for, would be simple, understandable and humanly patriotic.But Mikhalkov would not have been Mikhalkov, if after each “masterpiece” he did not want to be impaled … “Citadel” (by all logic – the fattest point in this whole story) came out as some kind of useless mockery. Mikhalkov finally admitted to the viewer that this was not his war, he just loves to ride at the head and wave the banner.

    No joke, the whole film is a set of mise-en-scenes of varying degrees of absurdity, which together make up an excellent sitcom.If you try to retell the plot, you can compile an excellent set of anecdotes: NKVD officer Dmitry arrives on the battlefield in search of the great division commander. The company at this time is lazily preparing for battle. The great divisional commander, seeing an NKVD officer, rushes to run, but there is nowhere to run – and he runs into battle with a great cry for victory, pulling everyone else behind him. In this confusion, the NKVD officer is frightened and confused, he tries to get back, but a barrage detachment is already piercing him with bullets – “Not a step back!”.The NKVD officer and the great division commander find themselves in the same funnel from the bomb, where the great division commander finds a helmet with the inscription “Mitya” and presents it to the NKVD officer. The NKVD officer is so grateful to the great divisional commander for saving his life that when the bullets finally stop whistling, he takes the great divisional commander to the river bank and undresses in front of him. Then they both walk into the bushes, where the You – Me – scene and the gun are played. Further – more … Throughout the film, I laughed so loudly that I was almost kicked out of the hall.

    Why it was necessary to turn the war into a laughing stock, I do not know, but Mikhalkov did not care about the “great victory.”From his point of view, there was not a single sane general in our army (well, except for himself, of course), and the war was won by a ray of sunshine that filtered through Fritz’s glasses in time. The peasants are waving sticks, hurray, comrades! What are we celebrating then on May 9, I do not understand? What luck is on our side?

    The final part of the trilogy from The Citadel did not come out, despite the loud title. She does not give any answers, does not tie the plot threads (if Menshikov was already revived after the bloody bath, then with the same success it would be possible to release him from prison in five years and remove The Return of the King).In the end, there is nothing corny about the film – it flies out of my head as quickly as a summer comedy. The proof is the almost empty hall and the absence of any excitement in the first week of the rental. Failure on all counts.

    P.S. Thanks only for Menshikov – as before, stunning.

    Surrender

    Stirlitz implied the possibility of failure, but he could not imagine such a failure.To be honest, after the final credits went, I was motionless for a minute and a half, and without even blinking, I looked at the canvas. Not on the image, but through it, without focusing the gaze. I just could not wake up from the concussion that my brain underwent, to be absolutely honest.

    You see, dear readers, a year ago after the premiere of Anticipation, I was one of that small group of people who at least somehow tried to justify Nikita Sergeevich’s creation. No, of course, I did not sing the praises of his creation, but I also did not share the opinion of the majority, who are actively watering ‘Burnt by the Sun 2’ with slops .I tried to understand the author, tried to compromise – okay, this is an artistic author’s creation, okay, even if the graphics are very weak, okay, let there be a bunch of historical unconnections. I remained on the neutral side, while showing the film eight out of ten, out of respect for one of the greatest tragedies of mankind.

    Going to the Citadel I was prepared for the worst. It seems that my notions of the Worst are very humane. I just can’t figure out how it could have been released at all. Do you think that ‘Anticipation’ is a set with no coherent scenes? So admire the sequel now.

    Now specifically on the facts. In 1937, such purges were carried out in the personnel of the USSR Army, after which 7 of the 140 members of the Military Council remained. The rest were shot. Out of 8 admirals of the fleet, only 0 remained. They were all shot. More than 150 brigade commanders were shot. These are most likely only approximate figures. Now the question is, what general drunkenness can we talk about? With such bosses as Comrade Stalin, it was much easier to put a bullet in your head than to give personal orders about stupid offensives for no reason.What the hell is a battery commander, instead of preparing for an offensive, he sits with the lessons and listens to their sentimental stories about a hard life.

    Childbirth during the bombing, yes, it doesn’t happen to anyone. But why again is this stupid flirtation with the Russian character . Did they overeat henbane? Do you really think that under the air strikes, staying in an open area, people will take an accordion and dance? Even the original author’s ‘strokes’ can come to an end when these strokes turn into an absurd blot.Or the moment when the main character scrambled from Mitya. What for? It is clear – a demonstration that the horror experienced at the Lubyanka can destroy any courage in the bud. But from the point of view of logic, this is generally meaningless, and simply – ridiculous. Especially if you take into account the attitude of the former division commander to life – what is the point in it if both wife and daughter were shot?

    At the same time, some scenes really touch to the depths of the soul , for example, Kotov’s tears when he sees the general’s shoulder straps. Or his monologue in the car in shackles.

    Do you know what is most offensive? Yes, what the actors really do. At the level of hysteria. Mikhalkov, Churikova, Madyanov, Tolstoganova. You believe their emotions. And it is doubly unpleasant when these roles fit into the absurd narrative of .

    The coming home episode starts to get annoying somewhere in the middle. And the drama for Kotov is understandable, the loss of a past life, but this practically does not cause any emotions. It’s the same with the final assault. What’s the point of this? Preventing, as Iosif Vissarionovich says, a possible civil war? Well, this, gentlemen, scriptwriters, in general, into any gate.And a gigantic special effect at the end – I even had to close my eyes, I just could not believe that such an idea could appear in a sane person when writing a script. Not only is the fortification itself in the form of a citadel absurd and impossible with the armament of the middle of the 20th century, there is still more gunpowder hidden in the walls, so that from some kind of stupid closure everything was blown to pieces.

    The final mine and the composition, which really ‘tired’ in two hours, makes negative emotions even stronger.You can’t believe this without a conversational meeting, it failed miserably.

    And as a result, the scene with Inna Churikova, who, under other circumstances, would have put a fat point in the victory of humanism over cruelty, life over death, leaves in quiet shock, one on one with credits …

    Unfortunately, this is a failure … The director failed to catch that thin thread of unity between the picture and the viewer, it was clear even in ‘Anticipation’. In ‘Citadel’, which could no longer be edited, both from the technical side, and probably also in the opinion of the director himself, the gap between the film and the viewer only increased. What was supposed to be a military epic became the personal story of one single general , with a fate that is only possible on the pages of the script. Moreover, a person is not a prototype of a hero – a winner, but a person – Mikhalkov, with his (possibly controversial) views on such a complex material.

    On the verge of

    Biden postponed the meeting with Zelensky in order to dedicate August 31 only to Afghanistan.This is what they think in Kiev. Right. If they admit that Joe decided to separate the flies from the cutlets, then it turns out that their president has an unenviable role anyway.

    They say that the relatives of the 13 US military killed at the Kabul airport were terribly offended by Joe Biden for the fact that at a meeting with them he secretly, as if by chance, glanced at his watch. Perhaps they themselves would not have paid attention to it. In any case, he tried to do it imperceptibly. But the “compassionate” Republican FOX News managed to catch him by the hand, providing this frame with furious commentary.Like, “they don’t respect us so much that they spit in our face even at such a moment.”

    But what’s wrong with that? When a 78 person is constantly caught on cognitive abnormalities, on the contrary, it’s good that he is still able to keep track of how much he has left. At least until the next drug intake. And even more so until the fateful 31 August for the whole country. And let the families of these 13 unfortunate people have something against this, but the relatives of those 5000 who are still there should thank their president.

    First, on his order, the Pentagon this time did not begin to be guided by the principle “there will be a corpse, there will be a case”, and on Sunday it struck a preemptive strike. So it sounded in his report. “Destroyed a car filled with explosives by suicide bombers who posed a threat to US soldiers.” At the same time, however, 12 civilians were killed, including seven children under 9 years old. But this, sorry, no one forced them to settle in a densely populated area of ​​Kabul right along the route of the jihad mobile.

    Second, today the United States air defense “intercepted” at least five missiles flying towards the airport.Nobody, however, saw or heard them, except the Americans themselves, but they probably would not lie. They said, for example, that the Taliban would take power by the end of the year, and for sure – by the end of the twentieth year of the US presence in Afghanistan, they took it. It’s the same story with rockets. You just need to correctly interpret the message about them.

    Who sent them is unknown. IS * does not have such an arsenal. The Taliban *, thanks to the fleeing invaders, may have appeared, but, first, it still needs to be mastered; secondly, they are hardly interested in doing it right now.The magic kick, of course, hasn’t bothered anyone yet, but the Yankees are like a stung go home even without it. Nevertheless, if someone attacked them, therefore, they have the right to demand that the new regime postpone the evacuation deadline. Although demanding is too much for them. The lowest is to ask if they suddenly do not fit.

    Biden, however, plans to make it in 24 hours. He also postponed the audience to Zelensky until September 1, so that nothing would distract him from the Afghan agenda on the last day of summer. In Kiev, for example, they think so.Right. If they admit that the owner of the White House has decided to separate the flies from the cutlets, then it turns out that their president has an unenviable role in any case. Moreover, he has no choice, given that Biden is still trying to “stuff” back from Kabul. All that will be left for his Ukrainian guest is to hum louder and more obtrusively. Better let Joe glance furtively at his watch than, as in a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Bennett, deep into himself.

    “Genghis Khan for my people is the same Hitler” – Realnoe Vremya

    The author of the sculpture “Horse-country” – about Finland, Tatars, creative plans and resentment towards the Motherland

    Photo: courtesy of Rafael Saifullin

    Rafael Sayfullin is a Tatar ceramist, sculptor and artist.For over 30 years he has been living in Finland, creating, including on the theme of his native country and his people. His friends tell us what kind of royal peremyachi he bakes, on Bauman Street there is his bizarre and delicate work “Horse-country”, and he plans to embody the oldest bait “Sak-Sok” times. The artist considers this legend to be one of the first cultural monuments that can be attributed to the heritage of the Tatar ethnos. In Realnoe Vremya – an interview with Rafael Dzhiganshevich, where he honestly talks about himself, about creativity, about relations with the authorities and the essence of the artist’s work.

    “There is more in common between Finns and Tatars than it seems”

    – In Finland, do you keep in touch with the Tatar diaspora?

    – For 32 years of living here, I knew only two Tatars closely. Rather, Tatar women. One of them, Gulsum, was the wife of a Finnish consul who worked in different countries. She and her husband used to visit us, but now we have lost touch with them. And the second is Elvira Nuri. Her dad was a famous journalist in Tashkent, she cherishes his memory.You know, the Tatars came to Uzbekistan after the revolution and after the war – there were two large migrations of Tatars to Central Asia.

    – Don’t you want, so to speak, to fall back to basics?

    – Not so long ago, for the 100th anniversary of the republic, I made a vase in Finland, which I called “Sak-Sok” – based on one of the most ancient Tatar legends. And he went to offer it to the local Tatars community. He brought it, put it on, and she stood there for a month and a half almost in the corridor. There was no reaction.As I understand it, there is most likely no Tatar society that needs culture here. Or at least those who would be interested in the artist. I did not find them here, and therefore I live separately.

    – But do you speak Tatar? Are you writing?

    – I’m talking. But I can’t write in Tatar. I do not have any Tatar diploma: everything I know is from my mother.

    – What do the Finns know about the Tatars?

    – In everyday life, they understand only two things related to us: the Volga and the Kama.A friend of mine has the surname Helkam. But there is more in common between Finns and Tatars than one might think. For example, buckwheat porridge here in the store is called “Tatar porridge”. There is a Tatar bog in Helsinki. And when I was in Elabuga, at the settlement, an art guide told us about the ancient Bulgarian tower and that the Finns appeared in these places, they came out of here. So the Finns and Tatars come from the same place, it happened about two thousand years ago.

    I’m interested in looking for parallels in languages.For example, “I love you” in Tatar sounds like “min sine yaratam”, and in Finnish – “mina rakastan sinua”. It seems! Puukko is a Finnish knife. In one of the Tatar dialects there is the name of the knife “pyake”. “Kyaki” in Finnish and “kyaku” in Tatar is a cuckoo. And there are still many such coincidences. I don’t think they are random.

    I also have a hypothesis that in Russian the word “iron” is actually Tatar, consisting of two words – “ut” and “yuk”, “without fire”. The fact is that in the leather industry a long time ago they used such a tool in which heating was used without an open flame, which later turned into an iron.And the tanners were mostly Tatars, they have worked leather since ancient times, sewed beautiful shoes.

    When I was in Elabuga, at the settlement, an art guide told us about the ancient Bulgarian tower and that the Finns appeared in these places, they came out of here. So the Finns and Tatars come from the same place, it happened about two thousand years ago

    – I heard that you cook wonderful national dishes.

    – Yes, I have a verbal Tatar language, and I also have a gustatory language.Friends say that I cook perfectly the peremyachi – they come specially for them. In general, I cook everything that my mother cooked. I make pilaf for 100 people – layered. Probably, he is still not Tatar, but Fergana. One neighbor in Uzbekistan taught him how to make his mom – I was born there.

    I remember that in order to receive a pension, my mother had to work for two or three years, and she persuaded her father to give her permission to go to work – it’s just that our women never worked in our family. Therefore, it turned out that my mother worked part-time in recent years as a cook in a kindergarten.And she said that the most delicious things should be prepared for children …

    – Did you grow up there?

    – No, our family did not live long in Uzbekistan. It’s just that dad was in the Mauthausen concentration camp during the war, so they were sent there after. And then the family returned to Samara, we lived there in a very beautiful house on the river bank. My son has stayed there now, he lives there with his wife and daughters.

    – Are you connected with Kazan?

    – We ourselves did not live there. But my first wife, who died of cancer in 2005, Nadia Ayupova, came from a very old Tatar family.Her maternal great-grandfather was the famous Kazan book printer and educator Karimov.

    “I don’t like to make portraits”

    – Tell us how you live here?

    I live practically in a village, this little place is called Kisko. In translation, this name means “rails” – because there is a quarry nearby, where copper was previously mined, and trolleys ran along the rails from it.

    Today in Finland there is a serious globalization – small villages and towns are gradually dying and turning into large ones, they are part of cities.By the way, the population of 50 thousand is a very large city for Finland. Helsinki, of course, is huge by local standards – there are 630 thousand there. The number of people is not increasing here, it is mainly decreasing. And the influx of emigrants is small.

    I have a friend here, Mauno. He lives nearby, this is my neighbor. And we have a tradition with him to drink coffee every day at 10 o’clock. We are two such old men who drink coffee together. He helps me not to lose Finnish, we talk. And sometimes we just sit in silence. Sometimes he says something, but I don’t even listen: I look at him, he moves his lips – it means he’s alive.There is also a crow. She is my friend. She flies here, I bring her bread, cookies, nuts on a plate. And she carefully picks it up, thanks me and flies away. That’s all. The others walk past the house along the path. Finland is a rather boring country, you know …

    – Do the Finns buy your works?

    – It can be different. There is work in the yard, it costs about 100 thousand euros. But until no one has bought it, it will stay that way. I have a fortune in front of the window, finished work, cast in bronze.But here is Finland. They will probably stand for another 100 years in this small village…. Although recently I had guests, about 5-6 Finns. They bought one of my jobs.

    – What else do you earn?

    – I participate in competitions. For example, there was such a president in Finland – Mauno Koivisto. Recently, a competition was announced in Finland for his monument near the Parliament building. Taking part in a competition in Finland for the sake of winning will definitely be a failure. I have participated many times, never won.I even took first place once, but the sculpture was allowed to be made by another person. But on the other hand, I can get a bonus for a sketch – it is 5 thousand euros. I also focus on getting them. I have a good idea – I met him by chance, was introduced to him and shook his hand. I think this gives me a reason to do his portrait.

    – Do you do portraits?

    – I don’t like them at all, as well as political affairs. But here I have a desire to do it. A couple of years ago I made a portrait of Jan Sibelius called “Waltz Three Hundred” (this is his famous work, which, by the way, was plagiarized later by Soviet composers – you hear this music in “School Waltz”).And that was also my personal desire.

    In general, I do not like portraits, as well as political affairs. But here I have a desire to do it. A couple of years ago I made a portrait of Jan Sibelius. And this was also my personal desire

    “It seems to me that the combination of mind and no-mind is art”

    – Have you wanted to become a sculptor since childhood?

    – During perestroika times, it was interesting for me to see the world and work in parallel.I was engaged in what I love – ceramics, and in Finland I became a sculptor. This is thanks to one person who said, “Let’s try this in bronze.” I did, and then another rich man liked it. And he suggested: “What if you do me too?” And so I did one, second, third work – and so I became a half-sculptor.

    – What do you like to do?

    – Artists never say what they are working on. And I’m probably the most chatty artist.This is how my life works – I have to advertise first, so that later God, maybe, will hear you. God can hardly hear me, so I have to send him an advertisement myself, and so that someone else would tell him: “Raphael, they say, does this kind of thing.”

    I am now making a drawing angel, which I promised to Bella Akhmadullina’s husband. I have an ambitious idea – to put it near the Hermitage. Of course, I was immediately told that it was useless. And one of my evil acquaintances even said: “Raphael, why not immediately go to the Hermitage?” But I, of course, was ashamed – there are too many great masters.

    The work, by the way, is worthwhile: there is still a second artist in it – Bella Akhmadullina herself with her poem “I know the simple truth.” And this is the most important thing that I have to work on now – because in fact, artists have little time. It took me half my life to work, and I look in the mirror – and already a gray-haired man …

    – I heard about your literary experiments.

    – I have stories, of which I am now collecting the story “A Trip to Mother”.These stories were written at different times, about different things. I also have a finished book – “The road under the clouds.” It turned out to be unnecessary in the editorial office of one Kazan magazine, it was rejected. We first agreed with them, and then they sent me a refusal: supposedly it was not profitable for them. A strange disadvantage for people: they are offered a ready-made thing, but it is not profitable for them, because they themselves want to do the design, better than the Finns than the artist. This is some kind of insult. Strange people …

    We have a lot of disadvantages in Russia.A good artist is unprofitable, who, perhaps, is born one in a thousand (I’m not talking about myself now, don’t think about it!). A good journalist, writer is also not needed. We need some kind of moron to make everything grayish, mediocre.

    – What is a good artist? Should he be smart?

    – My friends and I argue a lot on this topic.For example, one of them, Misha Kopylov, is a classic Petersburg intellectual. We often argued with him: do you need intelligence in art or not? After all, for example, the great Van Gogh was not an intelligent person. Because if he was smart, he would not have succeeded. You don’t always need a head to write music or a picture. It’s like talking to a woman, confessing your love. Do you need a head for this? No! She will get in the way. In short, Misha and I came to the conclusion: “Actually, you, Rafael, are right. Here you need to think less, you just need to forget about your brain. “Like that. It seems to me that the combination of mind and no-mind is art. And when it is so dry, it only hangs on the mind – this is not art …

    “Today they are already talking to the artist”

    – You went to Yelabuga during quarantine. How did you like it there?

    – Yes, just recently I was in Yelabuga at a symposium. I went there thinking that I was such a great artist. And there young girls, who are good for me as daughters, sit and paint huge pictures.And all honored, folk. In Russia, it is very fashionable to be popular and well-deserved. And here, where I live, unfortunately, such honors are not given out. And you live like this, in FIG nobody needs an artist. He hid somewhere in the forest from everyone, as if some kind of terrorist, and lives there for himself …

    So in Elabuga – they take huge canvases, sit, paint. And I hear the shuffling of the tassels and I think: “My God, why am I here? What am I doing?”. I need to smoke, drink coffee, and then only I’m ready. And they once, once – and that’s it.I brought such small canvases, and painted them. And they all came up and asked: “How so?” And I say: “Yes, I just love to draw such small pictures.”

    – But the fact that the symposium was held is good, isn’t it?

    – Of course. By the way, I would ask you to pay more attention through your newspaper: living far away, you can see better. I now see how the country has become rich. She grows rich imperceptibly from different sides. So, there were only three foreigners at the international symposium in Yelabuga.I am Finn, one guy from Portugal and one from Turkey – our Aigul. But it was very good: I saw how far people had gone, and now I have to catch up with them, they paint amazingly two-meter pictures, it struck me. It was all at the expense of the state! Previously, this was unthinkable. We lived in a good hotel, ate in a restaurant, painted pictures and were some kind of white people.

    When I left for the West, the artist in our country was absolutely nobody, not a person. And today they are already talking with the artist, they have made a wonderful museum of contemporary art in Kazan … But an artist is just like a communist.He works without salaries and fees.

    It seems to me that the combination of mind and no-mind is art. And when it is so dry, it only hangs on the mind – this is not art …

    “I was not paid for the” Horse-Country “

    – But do you get royalties for the installed work?

    – Not always. For example, it turned out a little awkward with the horse. I wasn’t paid a fee for it.

    – How so?

    – I spent money on it out of my own pocket – that’s all.It was a terrible disappointment – at one time Tatyana Georgievna Prokofieva, who was then the chief architect of Kazan, could not convince her leadership that the person had been working on the work for two years. For two years I was begging.

    – That is, in fact, you presented the “Horse-Country” to the city?

    – I never gave anything to anyone. It just so happened that I was not paid for the Horse-Country. I am offended. I did not make any agreements in advance with anyone. Who will compose them? I was counting on my homeland … We always try to love our homeland, but will it love you? It is a pity that the story with “Horse-country” did not happen in Finland.Here, if the mayor said it is necessary, then it is necessary. And I also met with Olesya Baltusova, and told her that they had not paid. And to no avail.

    – But they wrote about donations from sponsors for this sculpture.

    – It’s been three years since I put the work on, but you don’t hear any thanks, and I’m not talking about money at all. In all the newspapers it was written about some 200 thousand … And you can find on the Internet how much a five-meter sculpture made of bronze costs.

    And yet – are there many works in Kazan that reflect the artist’s desire to do something about his country? All the same, done at the behest.On request. Or a philanthropist will give it to you. I think that like this, head-on, an essay about love for the motherland – maybe only this horse of mine is … And how it was watered in the Internet space! Both him and me as an artist. Maybe it was the order.

    Here Kirkorov is good, I envy. Any other singer, artist too. But artists – those people with whom freedom began at all times – it is very bad with us now. The first thing about culture starts with artists. I regret that this is not emphasized.And sculpture is also an eternal art. How many years will people watch the same movie? Well, five. Well ten. And Michelangelo’s David was still watched by more people, and how many hundreds of years they will be watching.

    – Weren’t you offered any titles for him?

    – Rinat Zinnurovich (Zakirov, until September 2020 – Chairman of the Executive Committee of the World Congress of Tatars) first spoke about the title of Honored Artist. And I am indifferent to titles, I consider it a legacy of Stalinism.He said: “Well done, you made a horse. Many do not agree that he looks like a horse, everyone says that he looks like a camel. But still you are great. Only everything is painful for you, you had to make it sad ”. I say: “How sad? It will stand near the Kremlin, this is the face of the country, the people, there should be a beautiful thing. ” As a result, he drove me away, I left there sad and sad. But in the end he found out that he himself was expelled from there. So justice was done.

    All officials, sooner or later, will leave their seats anyway.And I am not honored, not popular, I have nothing to lose.

    We always try to love our homeland, but will it love you? It is a pity that the story with the “Horse-country” did not happen in Finland

    – Your horse is all covered with symbols and abstractions. Does each of them mean something?

    – Yes, there is not a single random detail in it. Many, for example, asked what kind of wheels it was. And these wheels are time. They crushed ancient Bulgaria, for example. This is the time that once crushed our country.Genghis Khan for my people is the same Hitler. Or Napoleon. Or Alexander the Great. I went and crushed hundreds of thousands of people ….

    There are ancient Bulgarian ramparts under the Samara bow. There was a large city in the Samara region (only traces of it remained). 10 thousand people lived in London, and archaeologists say that at least 15 thousand lived here. It was the largest city in Europe! And Genghis Khan walked … I just recently learned, two years ago, that a two-kilometer defense line was found from space.Shafts, these embankments from space are well read. Maybe someday historians will find it all, restore justice …

    “The Kremlin is a baby compared to bait o Sak-Sok”

    – We’ve all heard about your new development based on the ancient bait Sak-Sok “. Tell us how this work is going.

    – Well, now it is still in a frozen stage, due to the situation with the coronavirus. It seems to me that this land punishes us so much for the fact that we act so badly and thoughtlessly with it.All these our bags, all our nonsense lead to this. As a child, I was engaged in photography – I printed, bought a developer, fixer, then poured all these solutions. And once I thought: where am I pouring everything? And he asked my dad about it. And he answered me: “Everything that you pour into the Volga, son, flows.” We then lived in Kuibyshev. And then for the first time I began to wonder how we litter this world.

    – But back to Sak-Sok?

    – This is a completely random idea.My mother always sang this ancient bayit. And my grandmother too. And only when I started to go to Kazan, I learned that my parents, it turns out, come from the oldest surviving Tatar village (the same Rinat Zinnurovich told me about this). It is located outside Tatarstan – this is the village of Mastyak, Ulyanovsk region. And it was in that village that this bait, this legend, was preserved.

    I fell in love with this theme. This legend is about how a crying mother runs, runs and searches for her children, whose names are Sak and Sok.These are twin boys, their father stood and fired at a large wall to free the sun. The arrows ran out, and he asked his wife to send new ones through the children. And when these two boys were carrying silver arrows, they fought along the way. Their mother cursed them, and they turned into birds. And now they are somewhere out there in a dark forest, in the trees, my mother looks for them on the river bank and cries, and my father was burnt by the sun, and he became a rook.

    – How did you understand that this legend has survived in your village?

    – I have a wonderful friend Milyausha Khabutdinova, professor at Kazan University.She is my scientific curator. So, she claims that this legend is still connected with the Great Wall of China – it is the very prototype of the wall that the boys’ father shot at and set the sun free. There are many more versions of this bait, but it has been modified over thousands of years and turned into other tales. And in our village the oldest version, close to the original, has been preserved. Milyausha Khabutdinova says that she has 25 options, and the oldest one is about silver arrows, it is told only in Mastyak.She asked me: how do you know about the silver arrows? But I have not read it anywhere – since childhood I heard how they sang in the family.

    This work is about two and a half thousand years old, can you imagine? Find me something that is older in Tatarstan. This fortress, the Kremlin, next to which they are afraid to put this sculpture – it is a baby compared to this legend! This is the same as the Word about Igor’s regiment for the Russians or Kalevala for the Finns.

    – And you will make a sculpture?

    – When I came to Elabuga, I brought sketches with me.I thought I wouldn’t be able to show them because of the coronavirus. But thanks to my friend, the director of the Pushkin Museum, Rosalia Nurgalieva, I managed to make a small exhibition!

    Rosalia is an amazingly intelligent woman, just a cosmic person. And the museum put in order, and the exhibitions that she has … This man knows how to cook. She prepares a cultural meal for a whole nation.

    There were very few people at this one-day mini-exhibition in the courtyard of the Pushkin Museum. And now my sketches are left in the storage of the museum.Rosalia said she will prepare an exhibition in the foyer “Sketches by Rafael Sayfullin on the theme of Sak-Sok composition.” The model, the layout – everything is with her. In her opinion, people should definitely see this – and she literally made me leave them to her. And I got rid of these sketches, worked on them for a whole year. So in the near future there will be an exhibition at the Pushkin Museum. And then the sculpture itself.
