“I had the idea for ‘The Stroll’ on New Year’s Eve in Prague,” says screenwriter, Dunya Smirnova, “when I suddenly realized how similar 22-yearold Germans, French, Italians and Russians are.” The three characters we see are Russians, out for a walk in St. Petersburg. Olya (Irina Pegova), Alyosha (Pavel Barshak) and Petya (Yevgeny Tsyganov) stroll along beside the River Neva, arguing, joking, flirting, closely accompanied by a digital camera for ninety minutes that the three will never forget. “Wewanted to show the audience the new Russia... here and now,” says director Alexey Uchitel.
