Talk about insult to historical truth in “Matilda” funny, says Ingeborga Dapkunaite, who played the Empress

Moscow. 4 Oct. INTERFAX – Known actress Ingeborga Dapkunaite, who played in the movie “Matilda” the mother of Nicholas II spoke in defense of the picture.

“As soon as the person starts to say something, the truth dissolves. (…) From our conversation we can choose a certain phrase and change the meaning. Even the photographer not only captures – he chooses what to watch. What angle and filter. So talk about objectivity and insult of historical truth funny,” she said in an interview published Wednesday in “the New newspaper”.

Speaking of the Deputy of the state Duma Natalia Polonskaya, she noted that it is difficult to understand, “that someone seriously believes crying busts”.

“I guess in their minds it really. Then I would like, that they respected the fact that we’re shooting a movie. This is our truth”, – said the actress.

She also pointed out that vivid artistic expression has always caused a storm of indignation, and brought as an example the play “picnic Golgotha” and Rodrigo Garcia, which the Catholics tried to disrupt the staging of “the body of Christ,” the play by Terrence McNally, the British performance of Edward bond’s “Saved.”

“To condemn without reading – in the tradition of authoritarian systems. But it is dangerous to give in on provocation. “Matilda” goes in large quantities. The main thing that she talked about things that are interesting to the public, called empathy – and, again entertained. This is the more difficult task of any provocation and scandal,” said the actress in an interview with the publication.
