20 years ago, we were shooting the series "Birthday Bourgeois" in 1998, which became a cult film of the late 1990s. - the beginning of the 2000s. For the actors who played the main role, it was the finest hour. Over the years, many of them have disappeared from the screens. One of them was the director of the theater, who tried to conquer Hollywood, who prematurely passed away, and why after the shooting broke family Valery Nikolaev and Irina Apeksimova - later in the review.
The theme of the series was so urgent in the late 1990s. That hero Valery Nikolaev nicknamed Bourgeois in the press immediately dubbed the new "hero of our time". In a society just passed sweeping changes that are reflected in the film. Director Anatoly Mateshko said: "I think the secret of the" bourgeois "in the fact that he appeared at a time when it was very necessary. The idea of individualism, which declared our film, was very important. The concept of the bourgeois was at a time when we were shooting the picture, such shovels, a common noun. And then suddenly - quite cute hero, and the discovery that nothing is wrong with the bourgeois way of life there. And by the end of the movie to this change in the attitude of many people. A change of consciousness ... ". Filming was completed in late 1999, and the screens show came in 2000. In the wake of the phenomenal popularity a year later opened the second part of the "bourgeois".

His film debut took place in 1991, he starred in the films "Little things of life," "Anastasia," "Single player" at home and in the films "Turn", "Holy" and "Naytmen" in the United States, but the real popularity came to him at the end of the 1990s. The director did not expect that after his proposal Nikolaev return from Hollywood: "In casting Kiev I pulled him out of the pool in Hollywood. I called late in the evening and there was morning, and he had just bathed, drinking red wine. There Valera acted in several films. Well, I seem to beguile his script, he exchanged suddenly chic Los Angeles on a cold hall in Kiev. "
