“THE BOLSHOI” was successfully negotiated in US by the Central Partner Sales House, the official international distributor of the film, in collaboration with TriCoast Entertainment.
With financial support from Cinema Fund and Television Channel RUSSIA One, “THE BOLSHOI” has been a box office success since its premiere in Russia and Baltic States, accumulating over one million admissions from both these territories. “THE BOLSHOI” has also had a limited theatrical release in Germany, Austria, Israel, and will be released theatrically in Poland, Japan, and Spain.
From Producers Valery Todorovsky Production Company and Marmot Film Studio, “THE BOLSHOI” is a coming of age film about the competition world of ballet and specifically the struggles within the famous Bolshoi Theatre.
“THE BOLSHOI” tells the tale of a young girl, Yulka Olshanskaya, who lives in a poor mining town before she runs away from home to Moscow, to fulfill her dream of becoming a ballerina.
When Yulka is accepted to the prestigious ballet academy at Russia’s famous and grand Bolshoi Theatre, her career takes flight as she begins to battle the competitive world of ballet.
When acquiring an older mentor, Yulka faces yet another challenge – to rise and push to her full potential as a dedicated ballet dancer while giving up the things she holds most dear, her family, friends, the love of her life – or to give up her passion at the Bolshoi Theatre for a normal life.
“THE BOLSHOI” is a film about the obstacles of career paths, taking second chances, and achieving your dreams. Yulka’s character portrays that with drive, hard work, and passion, no difficulties or mistakes can stand in the way of achieving your dreams and becoming who you really are.
With the screenplay written by Anastasia Palchikova on the motives of the adapted synopsis by Ilya Tilkin and Valery Todorovsky, “THE BOLSHOI” has a fantastic cast and crew, including real-life ballerina, Margarita Simonova stealing the show as the lead of Yulka. Alongside is the often-featured award-winning star of Russian films, Alisa Freyndlikh, Aleksandr Domogarov (musical: Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), Anna Isaeva (Kremlin Ballet Theatre: Swan Lake, Arabian Nights), Valentina Telishkina, and dancer, choreographer, and art director, Nicolas Le Riche.
Director, Todorovsky is well known for his production work on the 2008 musical, “Hipsters”, famous Russian television series “The Thaw”, as well as 2013 films, “The Geographer Drank His Globe Away” (2013) and “Ottepel”.
Todorovsky’s “BOLSHOI” has been raved about since its release in Russia during May 2017.
“The exploration of complex themes and issues, such as the struggle of dementia, is subtle and powerful. These scenes are humorous; yet touchingly sad; anyone who has a family member suffering from this cruel condition will recognize the authenticity of these scenes. Frendlich captures her character’s suffering brilliantly; her portrayal could have been taken from a real-life aged care facility and edited straight into the film.” – Nicholas Makymow, Screen-Space
