Paulina Andreeva in the image of the Tsar Maiden in the film "The Little Humpbacked Horse"



On February 18, 2021 the film "The Little Humpbacked Horse" is released in Russia.

Filming for the fabulous blockbuster started in mid-July 2018. The film was directed by Oleg Pogodin, and the main roles were played by Anton Shagin, who played the role of Ivan the Fool and Paulina Andreeva, who embodied the image of the Tsar Maiden on the screen. The unusual role of the animated Little Humpbacked Horse went to Pavel Derevyanko, and Mikhail Efremov will be in the role of Tsar.

According to the plot, Ivan performed by Anton Shagin suffers from the fact that he is not a hero and not a handsome man, like his older brothers. But here the main character meets the Little Humpbacked Horse on his way, who becomes his faithful friend. Together, fairy tale characters overcome many trials and fight evil. There is also a love line in the tale - Ivan is enchanted by the royal daughter performed by Paulina Andreeva, and Konek does everything possible to keep the lovers together.

There were photos of Paulina Andreeva in the image of the Tsar Maiden in the film "The Little Humpbacked Horse" Paulina Andreeva announced her participation in the film back in August last year. In her microblog on Instagram, the actress posted a teaser. “I became a part of my favorite fairy tale“ HORSE ROCK ”, - Paulina shared then (the author's spelling and punctuation hereinafter are given unchanged - Ed.). Pavel Derevyanko also shared his impressions earlier.

As the actor said, he never played an animated character. Special technologies read the movements and facial expressions of the artist and were transferred to the Skate. Derevianko admitted that the filming process was not easy for him: due to the fact that his character is very short, Pavel had to shoot on bent legs. Despite the efforts spent, Derevianko was very pleased with the result of the work. Shot from the film "The Little Humpbacked Horse" It is worth noting that Paulina Andreeva is engaged not only in acting.


In 2019, she made her directorial debut. And last year the premiere of the series "Crazy" took place, where Paulina acted as a screenwriter. The director of the serial film was her husband Fyodor Bondarchuk. It should be noted that for him the series became the first multi-part project. By the way, Andreevva was actively finalizing the script during the self-isolation regime, while consulting with professional psychotherapists in order to write the image of the protagonist as accurately as possible.

Paulina previously said that when writing the script, she did not look at related projects and relied solely on life stories. The producers did not control her, so there were no limiting factors. It is noteworthy that Paulina was practically not present on the set, where her husband was in command. According to the scriptwriter, she decided to completely trust Fyodor Bondarchuk. By the way, at first the filmmaker did not know that his wife's script fell into his hands. The fact is that the director was given an unsigned copy. Fedor then admitted that he really liked the plot, and also hooked on the hero and the original story.
