Russian film director Alexander Sokurov has completed his new film The Sun about Japanese Emperor Hirohito
Russian film director Alexander Sokurov has completed his new film The Sun about Japanese Emperor Hirohito. It will premiere at the Berlin film festival (February 10-20). This will be the last film in the series about great historical figures of the last century. The series also includes Moloch (about Adolf Hitler) and Taurus (about Vladimir Lenin). The filmmaker discussed his last work with the Rossiiskaya Gazeta newspaper. "I knew that the Japanese acting school is unique but shooting the film and working with Japanese actors I saw it with my own eyes. They are brilliant actors. Most of all I was impress by the actor who played the leading role of Emperor Hirohito," said Alexander Sokurov. However, he refused to name this actor before the premiere. According to him, Japanese actors can cope with any task. "There were remarkable people in our crew. They worked hard in spite of the lack of time and the fact that three languages, English, Japanese and Russian, were spoken in the shooting area. We had no problems. There were excellent translators and good contacts between the crew and actors," Mr. Sokurov said. Preparations for the shooting took over seven years. The director met with an American expert in the Hirohito history to make his film more true to life. "Each word uttered in the film, each sigh is lived through and connected to internal intuition of bearers of this culture. No move is made out of harmony with emotions, psychology and national character. Everything is correlated," the filmmaker noted. In his word, the film is bloodless but hard and tragic.
