Siberian Education – Lilin’s criminals for Salvatores’s great cinema
A criminal education with precise, and sometimes incredibly shareable, rules of honour. These few words describe in short “Siberian Education” by Nicolai Lilin, the Russian writer and tattoo artist, who is the author and protagonist of the book from which Gabriele Salvatores drew his new film coming in 2013. The film is shot in English, in harsh weather conditions, starring as main actors John Malkovich and the two promising newcomers Arnas Fedaravičius and Vilius Tumalavicius. During an exclusive event at the Courmayeur Noir in Festival we met Salvatores, Lilin and the two young actors and they told us facts and trivia about this much-awaited film.
