The scandal ended the Moscow International Festival. The famous actress Catherine Deneuve, going to the Moscow International Film Festival to get an award and present a film in which she played the main role, could not even think that she would have such a “warm welcome”.
The Minister of Culture, Vladimir Medinsky, and the host of the closing ceremony, Igor Vernik, became the real “nails of the program”. The high-ranking official, apparently agitated by the performance in front of so many people, did not see the second microphone on the stage and unceremoniously pushed Deneuve away, taking her place on the stage. Then Medinsky completely forgot that he presented the award “I Believe” not to myself, but to the actress, and remained standing with the prize. Catherine Deneuve had to go backstage with nothing.
- We would be more pleasant if you played in this picture. If you were offered to play in this film, would you agree? - Wernick asked an interesting question to Deneuve.
And everything would have been nothing if Katrin had not played in this picture, having performed the main role in it. About this actress told the lead, from which he finally confused.
- Awesome! K.Denev asked me to hold a 5kg prize: she had a big bouquet in her hands. I wonder what the author would do? (the author’s style has been preserved), the minister wrote in his microblogging, referring to the author of the article in Gazeta.ru about his adventures at the MIFF.
Only now few people believed his excuses.
The editors of the uznayvse.ru site would not be surprised if Catherine Deneuve decides that she is more interested in Russian film festivals - not with her foot.
