The actors who played the main roles shared their impressions about the film and working on it:
Pavel Priluchny: “We have a wonderful company gathered. I have known Sasha Barshak for a very long time, he is a professional person, and this is his genre absolutely. I think more films like this should be made. Now there are too many problems, sometimes you just want to watch a good good movie.
Alina Alekseeva: “I know the life situation of my heroine. I also once had my own small business, where you are yourself and the director, subordinate – such work quickly leads to loneliness. Plus pressure from parents, comparing myself with others – all this is familiar to me firsthand. So I understand Katya very well and I empathize with her very much.”
Garik Sukachev: “I love Christmas films, they are always sweet, naive and always very kind. My character is practically Santa Claus, and I have a very positive attitude towards him. It has no text at all. It’s not an easy acting job. For 30 years I have never worked in such material. Here you can somehow dream up, it’s really interesting.
Film distribution of the film “Yolki-needles” starts across the country on December 29.
