Aleksei Balabanov’s twelfth picture Morphia based on Mikhail Bulgakov’s autobiographical “Notes of a Young Doctor” goes on general release in Russia today.
The script had been written by the famous actor and director Sergei Bodrov Jr., who tragically died in an accident in the Caucasus Mountains due to a glacier slide in 2002.
“I took up this scenario because it had been written by my friend Serezha Bodrov. We had discussed various projects with him and wanted to do a lot together, but unfortunately we had not had enough time. I decided to continue what he did not have a chance to finish” - the film director said to journalists.
