Where they filmed the movie "Stalingrad"
• where the film "Stalingrad"
Set of the film often become popular. The same thing happened with these near Moscow scenery for the film by Fyodor Bondarchuk "Stalingrad", which for the first time in Russia was withdrawn on IMAX 3D technology.
Protection of "Stalingrad" will charge the amount for the entrance, which is roughly equivalent to a movie ticket. Buying a "tickets" for a scene 3D-movie, we went for a walk on the set, where the film "Stalingrad".
Under a major battle scenes of the film were selected factory ruins "Lenspirtstroy", which was destroyed during the Second World War and used for the filming of the movie is not one:
Decorators quarter of Stalingrad came to their work on a large scale. If you believe Wikipedia, the scenery built 6 months more than 400 people and had spent all this about 5 million. Dollars.
Since the film is an art, then on the set a lot of details that need to emphasize the drama of the tape. For example, the German cemetery with a fence made of headboards:
This cemetery was indeed in Stalingrad and in approximately the same location as on the set, but it looked a bit different:
fences is not a fantasy film decorators. Similarly, it was fenced common grave of Soviet soldiers on the banks of the Volga in Stalingrad.
On the set were recreated the most notable buildings of the time of Stalingrad. Gerhardt mill was built in 1903 and destroyed in 1942:
One of the most impressive buildings on the set - the first Tsaritsin fire station (the original name of the city was Tsaritsyn (1589-1925), then Stalingrad (1925-1961), well, and finally the modern name - Volgograd)
The actual building was built in 1897. In the 30s of the last century, the city authorities decided to dismantle the watchtower, because they feared attacks on members of the executive committee:
So beautiful ruined watchtower, in the future, the film simply could not have been in Stalingrad:
Some buildings on the set are not just facades, but also the interior. One of these buildings is the decoration department store, which is why it was renamed the "grocery store":
At that time, the Germans controlled Stalingrad, in a department store headquarters of Field Marshal (the highest rank in the German army during the years of World War II, this title had 26 generals) Friedrich Wilhelm Ernst Paulus, it is he and surrendered captured.
Let's go inside:
First of all, in the eye catches the chandelier, made in the spirit of Stalin's empire, which sways from a draft:
The interior looks as if the next film is designed for Americans, rather than Russian. Each element of the decor emphasizes affiliation to the Soviet Union.
In addition to the store name, and left a small school with a lantern:
From the photographs of the first bombing of the area of the Fallen fighters in the ceiling lights were 3 instead of two, but it is, of course, the little things.
The Germans apparently were so panicked that made spelling mistakes in the captions. If you believe the Yandex. Interpreter, the right to write - "schützengraben verlassen":
Drama Theater. Gorky, more precisely, a copy of:
The feeling that a decoration made on this photo. The building was built in 1915 (it is not about the scenery, and that in the photo) and it was not theater, and House of Arts and Sciences. Later, the change of power and the building of the theater did. During World War II it was destroyed. In 1952, the restored theater reopened. Who is the "New Experimental Theater":
In this double Theater, after the restoration, the lions have been moved. Now they are near the other entrance to the theater:
As I said at the beginning, for the part of the decorations used the old factory ruins. The basis of this room - is precisely the old walls of the plant:
If you go over the wall of the room from the last frame, you can see how to make decorations:
These walls have witnessed a real war, not a toy:
Naturally, it also recreated the set designers:
In the present Volgograd, this fountain is not, instead it now parking. Although it is very quickly restored after the war, as evidenced by the photos from the first sports parade in Stalingrad, but then decided that he does not meet the look of the restored city, and it was dismantled:
A lot of attention was paid to interior decorators detail on the set:
MZMA-400 or 401. This machine was an exact replica of the car Opel Kadett, but during the Battle of Stalingrad this Muscovite did not exist, so there he pretends Opel:
I doubt that such a plan was in Stalingrad panels. It reminds me of a third-rate footage from American films associated with the Soviet Union, or a screenshot of a computer game:
Most of the decorations are made of foam and plywood and then painted. It seems like the only blow up the house during the filming. Styrofoam bricks are evident:
If you do not pay attention to the historical inaccuracies, the work is very good decorators. It is seen that people have tried.
It is true for all time presence on this site, I was not feeling like I'm in a computer game and not on the court with the scenery for the film, which premiered, presumably, will take place in October 2013 ...
