An article at the site segodnya gives us more info about the movie Mademoiselle Zhivago. (probably info from the press conference)
The 12 stories of the movie have different plots but also a main line to follow. At the first story we can see a 30-years old French Lady(Lara) and a 18-years old Russian soldier(Maks Barskih),who struggle for their love.There is a possibility for Igor Krutoi to appear in the movie,playing a dead German or a pianist.We will see more than 500 people in the movie,in total.
The budget of the film is $2.5 million and the decorations for each clip are different.A model of Auschwitz is already built outside Kiev.There is no connection between the movie Dr. Zhivago and Mlle. Zhivago.They chose than name because of Lara,named of the main heroine of the movie Dr.Zhivago.
The shooting at Lviv was difficult due to the temperature,the fake snow and the heavy clothes.The citizens were divided,others got disturbed of the traffic jam created by the blocked roads down town when others liked the arrival of a star there and they were proud for their city being chosen for the film instead of Paris or Vienna.
According to Alan Badoev,they filmed two stories there and now they will shoot in Ukraine,other cities of Europe and New Zealand.The filming period is about to end at the end of June and the film will be ready in October or November.By that time they will decide if they we will show it at film festivals worldwide,added Igor Krutoi.
