The state Duma Committee on culture could help to understand the situation around the movie «Matilda», such opinion was expressed by Director of the film Alexey Uchitel during the direct line with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Actor Sergey Bezrukov, referring to the President, raised a question about the movie «Matilda» and asked why trying to ban a painting, which no one has ever seen. The President said that no one is trying to ban, and noted that I would not like to join in the unfolding of the film dispute between the state Duma Deputy Natalia Polonskaya and Alexei Uchitel, then gave the word to the Director.

«In the Duma there is, for example, a wonderful culture Committee, which is headed by an amazing Director Govorukhin, and you also could deal with this. It seems to me, to spend extra public money when we have first prosecutors, then the Treasury and the audit chamber. They do the same: we show documents that have all checked, and they are doing the same. The incitement that should not be», — said the Teacher.

The movie «Matilda» about the fate of the ballerina Matilda Kschessinska, and fell in love with the crown Prince, the future Emperor Nicholas II. Starring Mikhalina Olshansky from Poland, Nicholas II — German actor Lars Eidinger.

Later, Poklonskaya said that he had received the answer of the experts on the movie «Matilda» and sent them a negative rating to the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation.
