Ahtem Setable Dragunov to criticism of the picture “CBarge”. Photo –
Photographed the scene of the tank battle in “Cyborgs”. I watched the movie a dozen times, and each time the impressions of the different scenes. Today she seems good, tomorrow – no. Each time worried, as the film will be perceived. But if you reshoot, it will be a completely different movie.
This was stated by the Director Ahtem Seitablaev in an interview with “Ukrainian truth”.
Comments on the reaction of film critics for picture of the “Cyborg” defenders of Donetsk airport in 2014.
“Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but if I always listened, I never played in the theater, never made films. This is my world, my dreams, my category of taste. It is very hard work to be a film critic. Do not accept the criticism based on such expressions as “a hatchet job operator”, “cutting staff from some of the stories.” Nobody gives you the right to say so. Very easily perceive, when you criticize me as a Director, but not when it comes to my team,” said the Director.
Noted that these critics, they are people that are in the works celebrate the good news.
“They can only talk, it would probably be better not to say categorically. Because then I have a question: “who are You? Who are you?”. The vast majority of ordinary viewers analyzing the movie, in my opinion, much better, deeper, more accurately and elegantly than those who somehow call themselves film experts and film critics”, – he said.
I am particularly pleased that the thoughts and hopes which we put in the movie, most of them very clearly read by the audience
Told whose opinion was most important to him during the premiere.
“First day rental” Cyborgs” wanted to hear the opinion of Ada Nikolaevna Rogovtseva, our consultants – who participated in the creation of the script, fighters and volunteers. Felt extremely a lot of excitement, because at the stage when I ordered the script, started shooting, we realized how great a responsibility we have. However, at that moment we understood why do it. It is no secret that every Director and every person expects some feedback. It is desirable that he was positive. I am no exception. But I did not expect such a scale and with such emotion. I am particularly pleased that the thoughts and hopes which we put in the movie, most of them very clearly read by the audience, and they talk about this”.
Called comments of critics, with whom I fully agree.
“I understand that, from the point of view of the military, we will have some inaccuracies. But always emphasize that we are shooting a feature film, because inaccuracies are possible. It is impossible to tell the story of the protection of the Donetsk airport, which lasted 242 days, on the territory of the two-hour film. Think we managed to strike a balance between pretentious theses and harmonious execution”, – said the Director.

Denied the remark that the painting was removed earlier, because the war continues.
“I don’t have time to understand that Russia invaded Ukraine, we are witnesses to and participants in the birth of a new nation.
I replied to myself: we no sooner made the movie “Cyborg”. We rented it for the future to happen. Our movie is not about war but about peace, which is born in this war. That is why at “Cyborg” is so much talk about life, about hopes, about dreams, about the pain. The military said: we were able to talk about things about which they are mostly silent, but thinking. It pleases”, – said Seitablaev.
The film, directed by Akhtem Seitablaev “Cyborgs”, which tells the story of the protection of the Donetsk airport, has already broken records ukrainskogo box office, having collected more than 22 million UAH.
