Erotic duet. Courtly and fetishist styled dolls in totalitarian scenery decorated by sunset light. Feathers and crystals of The Lady Unknown from Alexander Blok poetry. Postindustrial debris reminding Tarkovsky’s «Stalker» fiction art film – mysterious zone of Russian soul. Brilliant model Tanya The Doll and rowdy Liza – a youthful sister of «Andrei» magazine’s criminal star Sonya Belkina who never was found by Interpol – with accompaniment of the inimitable kings of post-soviet blues «Blues Cousins» band.
You will do a video-dive into the past – there is a showpiece from first casting set by Liza Belkina and her first untamed exposition to camera. She’s came timidly to «Andrei» magazine’s studio after her sister who’s all-Russian notoriety always was a hard act to follow for Liza. «I want to try myself, it’s something like from Coppola’s «Rumble Fish» – she said, – although we don’t have many in common with Sonya by character and appearance, except the smile is similar and we’ve both got some dormant susceptibility to criminal actions: sometimes in subway I feel like drawn to show backside to gate controllers!».
And quite different is Tanya The Doll – aristocratic, fawned over by tycoons and model agents, smiling from the billboards around Moscow, visiting haut couture defiles in Milan, calm and splendid… Erotic duet!
