Leonid Gaidai's widow protects the legacy of the deceased spouse.
The films of Leonid Gaidai “Operation Y”, “The Diamond Hand”, “The Prisoner of the Caucasus” have long become popular, the quotations from these pictures are firmly and permanently rooted in our mind. But commerce, it seems, will soon destroy the entire golden fund of national cinema.
So our modern directors decided to squeeze out a maximum of commerce from old movies. From the TV screen, a stream of remakes rushed at us. With the films of Eldar Ryazanov "The Irony of Fate" and "Office Romance" arrived in a godly way. First, the master was asked for permission to re-film his films, and even adhered to the storyline. But Fyodor Bondarchuk decided not to bother about this and launched a remake of the “Caucasian Captive” in the form of a commercial.
“Let Fyodor take pictures of his father’s films and not touch Gaidai,” said Grebeshkova.The actress is determined and threatens Bondarchuk with serious problems, including the court and prison. But it seems that it is difficult to frighten Fedor Sergeevich. They say that Bondarchuk has already begun casting the actors.
