#Quote
1[on the criticism that 'positive protagonists' are missing in Leviathan (2014)] And what is actually bad about Nikolai? To whom has he done evil? With whom was he not honest? What is a 'positive' in this case? He's just a man. Like all the other characters; just humans. All this without the presumption of 'positivity' [in the moral makeup of the character]. Why do we need this, how should I say, 'forefinger' for where to look? Who to emulate? It is an infantile attitude to art. You have to look at the panorama of life without embellishment, without hyperbole; just the way it is and draw your own conclusions.
2There is nothing more magnificent than to make art. My experience tells me so. Nothing. It's the most magnificent thing in the world.
3As an art-house director I am supposed to hate mainstream films but I saw Peter Jackson's King Kong (2005) and liked it. I even cried when I was watching it although in my opinion this film has no artistic value at all.
#Fact
1Considers Fyodor Dostoevsky to be a very important figure in his life. He stated that he was in love with Dostoevsky's works, reading only this author for many years.
2As a trained actor, he found difficulty in getting acting jobs. Between the years 1990 and 2000 he said he had only acted in two stage plays and a plethora of episodic bit parts in various TV shows. Zvyagintsev stated that whatever acting aspirations that came to fruition during this time turned out to be very uninteresting and entirely "empty" in terms of personal fulfillment. Around the years 1993-1994 is when he first turned to directing TV commercials which he shot on 35mm. It was during this time where he heard the sound of film running through the camera for the first time before even knowing such filmmaking terms as; "Roll Camera! Action!". At 36 years old, which was a critical moment in his life he had a realization that for almost 10 years he was going nowhere in life. It was at this point when he had decided to make a film.
3Lists Sergey Loznitsa, Aleksey Mizgirev, Aleksey Fedorchenko, and Vasiliy Sigarev as some of his favorite contemporary Russian filmmakers.
4Some of his favorite filmmakers are Ingmar Bergman, Robert Bresson, Michelangelo Antonioni, Andrei Tarkovsky, Otar Iosseliani, Aleksey German, Marlen Khutsiev. Antonioni had the most profound influence on him: He said that seeing Antonioni's L'Avventura (1960) gave him a 'new life' and he wanted to become a filmmaker.
5Was a street janitor after graduating GITIS for 3 years.
6Studied acting at The Russian University of Theatre Arts (GITIS) from 1986 to 1990.
7Served in the Russian Army in 1984 through 1986.
8Some of his favorite films are L'Avventura (1960), L'Eclisse (1962), La Notte (1961), Ultimo tango a Parigi (1972), Un condamné à mort s'est échappé ou Le vent souffle où il veut (1956), Diary of a Country Priest (1951), Wild Strawberries (1957), Autumn Sonata (1978), Andrei Rublev (1966), The Mirror (1975), Ordet (1955), L'enfant (2005), Husbands (1970), The Lovers (1958), Woman in the Dunes (1964), Trial on the Road (1971), Giorgobistve (1966), Seven Samurai (1954), My Night at Maud's (1969), Breaking the Waves (1996), The White Ribbon (2009), Koyaanisqatsi (1982), Alice in the Cities (1974), and Bicycle Thieves (1948).
9His second feature Izgnanie (2007) (The Banishment) premiered at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and surprisingly won the Best Leading Actor Award for Konstantin Lavronenko who previously starred in The Return (2003) (The Return). Lavronenko became the first Russian actor ever to win this honour.
