Legendary bard subject of biopic
The legendary singer, actor and bard of the late Soviet era, Vladimir Vysotsky, has been eerily resurrected in a new film written by his son Nikita and directed by Pyotr Buslov (most recently of the criminal thrillers Bummer and Bummer 2).
The movie, Vysotsky. Thank You for Being Alive (Высоцкий. Спасибо, что живой) chronicles a period in Vysotsky’s life, in the summer of 1979, about a year before he died, when he traveled to Uzbekistan on an “unofficial” and therefore illegal tour and had a near-death experience due to an overdose on morphine.
