Vitaly Suslin, writer and director
I've seen Vitaly Suslin’s film "Head. Two ears" at the Kinotavr Film Festival and just really loved it. Unusual, extraordinary, ironic, subtle, smart, nagging movie. And at the same time the was the light in it, it wasn't gloomy. I often thought back about this film, talked about it to others, advised my friends to watch it. Of course, I was very happy when I got the unexpected offer to read Vitaly Suslin’s new script. And from this reading, a new film has almost been formed.
Vitaliy is a gift of fate. He is a very bright person, infinitely devoted to cinema, an incredibly subtle and solid artist, with his very recognizable directorial style. Vitaliy is a doctor by his first education. As a graduate of the medical institute, he knows the anatomy of the human body, so Vitaly knows and feels his characters and their souls much deeper. That is why the characters of his films are so real, voluminous and touching. You really want to help them. The emotoons that his characters evoke in the viewer reminds me that of the reaction to "The Overcoat" story by Nikolai Gogol.
