Alexandra played in the movie Blagoslavite Zhenshinu
On June 18 we had two celebrations! First it was Alexandra’s Dad’s (Konstantin) birthday, and also the Premiere of the movie by Stanislav Govorukhin in which Alexandra played. It is called in Russian "Blagoslovite Zhenshinu", litteral translation "Bless the woman", a beautiful love story of a Russian woman from 1935 to 1957 (We originally thought it was called "The Hotel Manager", and previously photos were posted here). The official Premiere in the movie theaters in Russia will be on the 27th of August, and we hope we will be able to get for you some video cassettes and DVD of that movie with English subtitles in due course. Look at the official movie poster, and the invitation. All of the top of Russia was there, including Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov, ex-president Mikhail Gorbachev, Central Bank Chairman Viktor Gerashenko, and many others.
