Premiere with 30 years late – cinema people congratulate Ģirts Jakovļevs on their anniversary / Article /

Could there be an even better anniversary gift than the premiere of a long-forgotten movie? Such a gift – the screening of the 1990 feature film “In the Wind of the Soul” – was presented to the legendary actor Ģirts Jakovļevs on the 80th anniversary by the Latvian Cinematographers’ Union.

The work of director Andris Rozenbergs with Jakovlev’s participation in a public premiere in Latvia never experienced it, and on September 15, at the Splendid Palace cinema, on the eve of Ģirts Jakovlevs’ anniversary, this historical injustice was corrected.

Old master of Latvian cinema and theater Ģirts Jakovļevs The 80th anniversary was celebrated in July. The greetings of the theater colleagues have already been heard, but on September 15, the cinema people also greeted the anniversary at the Splendid Palace cinema. Almost everyone remembers Jakovlev’s portrayal in popular Riga film studio feature films, such as “Blow, Winds!”, “In the Shadow of Death” and “Attack on the Secret Police”, but a little-known director and cameraman Mika Zvirbulis’ feature film “In the Wind of the Soul”. Girt Jakovlev has one of the main roles in this.

“It simply came to our notice then. It took a very long time for him to be approved, and then we took him, accepted him, sent him to a copying factory. And while she was standing in line for copying, we became independent, ”said director Andris Rozenbergs. “It was the year 90, and it was a time of transition, one might say. The cinemas also switched to another regime, and so she somehow stayed out. At that time, there was no money and no incentive to translate it into Latvian. ”

The film is based on the novel of the Russian writer Vladimir Makanin, and the screen partners of Ģirts Jakovlevs are the well-known Russian actors Valentina Tielichkin and Vladimir Menshov, as well as the wonderful Latvian actresses Regina Razuma and Guntis Virkava. The film tells the story of an unusual and complex triangle of relationships, and on September 15, part of the creative team also attended its first official premiere in Latvia.

“I am insanely surprised by this show we just saw.

I am shocked, it would be foolish to say, but the surprise is extreme, ”admitted Ģirts Jakovļevs. “As Telichin, as I liked her! I haven’t really seen him in those Soviet films at all. And the reality of Soviet life is extremely charming. It’s awesome in that movie – our Soviet life as it was for us. “

Film critic Daira Āboliņa, on the other hand, told about the film: “Basically, the genre of this psychological drama, he is absolutely abandoned. This type of film is almost non-existent. This is largely due to the fact that it is to some extent a tradition of Russian cinema. Time has changed, but the fact that it is very difficult to find an honest attitude towards yourself and often be honest with the person you are with has not changed anything there! ”

Unfortunately, it is not planned to show the film “In the Wind of the Soul” to the general public in the near future.
