Singer, TV presenter Andngeleka Rudnitskaya:
“(Not) died in vain if Vasily Slipak?”the answer to this question is unlikely to need to look at those who came to Kiev in the overflowed hall of a cinema “Ukraine” for the premiere. The film has collected those first days and still framed his shoulders a wounded country. Myth-the singer and the myth of the warrior. Friends of Basil Slipka in the film was looking for an explanation for myself, as it was combined in one person and that is more important”.

“I was thinking about something else. Vasily is a man with a unique voice, which Ukraine spoke not when he has won all possible international musical competitions, and when he died. The sad, ugly Ukrainian tradition … Our talents and heroes will be live when we learn to appreciate in life and not after death … I during the movie didn’t cry. “Cemented” is another stone memorial in itself…”added Rudnitskaya.
Impressions from the show shared by the Director of the Institute of national remembrance Vladimir Vyatrovich.
“Leonid Kanter took a beautiful movie “the Myth” of Vasily Slipage and the war. One of his best films and the best film, from my point of view, about the present. Even he did not expect such impressions. Look!”

“Finally able to go and see the MYTH. Would have to see him week in the box office, and at least a month. Show on television in prime time to “tired”,”frustrated” and disoriented the rear of the population of Ukraine at least a little understood and saw firsthand what true patriotism is, what real love is. What is the honor and power of the spirit. Is mega successful career and a carefree life abroad, than the soul that hurts when there is a war. Crying is not a shame”.
“Thought I became thick-skinned in these extreme years, learned to cry without tears .. But then I couldn’t resist. Struck by the spirit of Basil Slipage .. Thank you for your work!”added the artist.

Natalia Snow wrote on the official page of the movie in Facebook:
“In Florence (cinema in Desnyanskiy district. – Gazeta.ua) convenient evening sessions on “Myth”. Today at 18:30 going from 30 spectators. Behind us sat a mother with children of primary school age:
– No, popcorn will not buy. It’s not an entertaining movie.
There were no objections.
But when he emerged from the hall (no one stood up until the end credits) – the cleaners noted with surprise that they have nothing to do.”
Volunteer, lecturer, Kyiv national Taras Shevchenko Marina Ryabchenko which joined in the creation of the film, shared his impressions from watching. Said that her name mentioned in the credits, although she did not insist.
“Oh my God! Never thought a documentary could be SO! The film, which is the plot on which the watch is not worse than the art. The film, which we can laugh, and cry. Strikingly!
The only drawback for me was the slogan “what killed Vasily Slipak?”Perhaps because I have such question neither in relation to the hero of the film, or any of our guys. After the show I overheard an interview of George Crane, who said that he understood that much stronger would the last phrase of Basil Slipka “Response the Tobi I vcno itime”. Surprised, because the same thought appeared to me in the cinema. Definitely go and see this movie!”
Users noted that the picture would be worth showing to students.

“I can’t understand why the state is unable to garner the support of the Ministry of education and to write letters of recommendation for schools, colleges and universities. Same story every time. People very little. Called the school to son, there is no one heard or knows about the movie “the Myth”. There are lessons of Patriotic education purely for show. That’s all, unfortunately,” – he wrote in facebook Natalia Baydaev.

On display in Milan, Italy, came two spectators, who covered the distance in 2 thousand miles to see “Myth”.
“It is the Glory and Stas. They wanted to see “Myth” that drove 2000 kilometers hitchhiked through eight countries. So don’t tell me that you do not convenient time or location. It would be a desire!”- wrote the Director of the film Leonid Kanter.
In social networks the Director of a picture Leonid Kanter wrote why the movie “the Myth” will not upload to the Internet.
“Ukraine got used to the fact that any movie after the rental appears in the network. If for a Hollywood movie it means the loss of some percentage of the multimillion-dollar profits for the Ukrainian it means death. The market for European, especially Ukrainian films is very small. If we talk specifically about our film, the MYTH, the next six months waiting for his festival life. Participation in festivals is the opportunity to meet with distributors, which in turn gives the film a chance in the cinemas of other countries. Movies that are already in the network, to major festivals do not take”.

“Through this film, we count on the fact that the viewer will not be able to press pause, stop or skip any part. This is not information tape and emotions experienced by the viewer during playback, linked together a strong chain. Most of the frames of the” Myth ” filmed by non-professional operators on the phone, action VHS camera. To bring this image to the required quality, has done a tremendous job. The team of “myth-makers” handled every second of the film, divided into 25 kadrikov, and we are very keen that the audience got it all at the highest level!”- wrote the Director.
