The year 2014 in Russian cinema will be remembered by several striking premieres at once, many of which did not leave indifferent either sophisticated critics or ordinary viewers. The editorial staff of GQ decided to take stock of the film year and made a list of the most prominent figures in Russian cinema. The magazine traditionally gave the right to choose the winner in the nomination to the reader.
The first participant in the nomination is Konstantin Khabensky. His key film work was the performance of the big role of the little man Viktor Sluzhkin in the most sincere drama of last year, The Geographer Drank His Globe Away. A touching story about the difficult relationship of a school teacher with modern adolescents was treated kindly by the audience and criticism.
Yevgeny Tkachuk was awarded "Niki" for Best Actor in the film "Winter Way" and tried on the collective image of Mark Zuckerberg and Pavel Durov in the film "Startup".
The next nominee is Evgeny Tsyganov, who embodied the canonical image of the sixties in The Thaw, a sensational retro series of recent years, and was a model for the behavior of a real man.
Another contender for the victory is Grigory Dobrygin. He became the main character in Anton Corbijn's film "The Most Dangerous Man" about a young Chechen illegal immigrant, playing in an ensemble with Willem Dafoe and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Rounding out the five nominees is Leonid Yarmolnik - the performer of the role of the knight Rumata in the last masterpiece of Alexei German "It's hard to be a god", the work on which lasted more than fifteen years.
The XII GQ Person of the Year award will be presented on September 16th. You can vote for the one who, in your opinion, became the most successful actor of the year on the website www.gq.ru
