The action of the film "Danube" takes place on the banks of the great European river Danube, which crosses ten countries. The characters communicate with each other in three languages - Russian, Serbian, and English. Languages and borders - in a broad sense – are the main theme of the "Danube".Director and screenwriter of the movie is Lyubov Mulmenko.She has previously worked on scripts of such films as "Fidelity", "What's My Name", "Nadezhda Plant", Unclenching Fists (grand prize in the “Un Certain Regard competition” 2021); she also wrote Russian dialogues for "Coupe No. 6", a film that won the Grand Prix of the Cannes Film Festival (2021)
Director of Photography - Mikhail Khursevich (Whalerman). Starring Nadezhda Lumpova (“One More Year”, “Olga”, “What Slava Wants”), and a Serbian debutant Nenad Vasich. Vasich has no acting education, before "Danube" he worked in the warehouse of a book publishing house. For the role, he quit a job, learned Russian, and mastered the basics of juggling.
Director, Lyubov Mulmenko:
- “Danube” is not only a Russian-Serbian love story, but also a lovingly filmed guide to non-tourist underground Belgrade. The plot is integrated into the documentary environment. Belgrade is a very charming and cinematic city, and its inhabitants are as artistic as they can be - in addition to professional actors, ordinary Belgrade residents acted in the film. The Danube soundtrack is also a guide to Balkan music ranging from folk songs to Yugoslav rock and young indie bands.
Actress, Nadezhda Lumpova:
- This is a film about a type of love, when there are fundamental differences between the two loving people. This "difference" simultaneously pushes the characters towards each other and creates obstacles in the development of their relationship... The film is about trying to escape from their habitual hole. This is why my heroine is humanly close to me, and as an actor, I am also very interested in her path.
