My Grandmother Fanny Kaplan

My Grandmother Fanny Kaplan


Director: Alena Demyanenko

The work on My Grandmother Fanny Kaplan lasted for three years. So it’s no wonder that the auditorium at the Odessa premiere was packed. Not surprisingly, Kaplan, accused of killing Lenin, is a controversial personality. And a film made about her and shown in the former Soviet Union could not go unnoticed. One of the notable features of “My Grandmother Fanny Kaplan” is the selection of performers. Thus, the image of Dmitry Ulyanov was embodied by Miroslav Slaboshpitsky. In other roles, we can also see representatives of Ukrainian directing: Roman Shirman, Gennady Kofman, and Vlad Troitsky.

 Kaplan viewed Lenin as a “traitor to the revolution” when the Bolsheviks enacted a one-party rule and banned her party. On August 30, 1918, she approached Lenin, who was leaving a Moscow factory and fired three shots, which badly injured him. Interrogated by the Cheka, she refused to name any accomplices and was executed.

The approach of the Danish writer to treacherous princes, who cheat and do not blink an eye. So the two Little Mermaids, Silver and Gold, find themselves in the world of Warsaw dance parties of the 1980s. Bustling with music, sparkling with neon lights and sequins. In the blink of an eye, they become the sensation of the capital’s nightlife, lose their heads in love and forget their true nature for a while. But one broken heart is enough for the situation to get out of hand… And while one girl forgives the lover who dumped her and obediently turns into sea foam, her girlfriend-sister… Let’s not reveal all the cards of this rather violent film with horror elements.
