This is that Igor Nikolayev says about the film:
- To write music for the film was a long-standing dream of mine. And it was filled absolutely by chance. The record has been going in America, and the symphony orchestra was in Belgrade at that time. We got signal on the internet. The Conductor there and we are here! And there was a difference in time huge - nine hours. I have never seen such technology, and Hollywood, probably; no one will be able to catch up with it.
As for the film, apparently, the composer liked to work in such unusual format.
"This is the kind of movie, in which I would like to work: love story with elements of action, thriller, all together. The project brought much more creative satisfaction, more than one new song. I’d like to make some changes in routine life, which is called "the everyday life of Russian show-business".
