The failure of cinema chains to show the film «Matilda» directed by Alexei Uchitel because of threats from his opponents is clear, however, this issue could be addressed by increased security measures during the shows, told RIA Novosti on Tuesday the head of the Guild of film critics Union of cinematographers of Russia Kirill Razlogov.

Previously joined the network of cinemas «Sinema Park» and «Formula Kino» refused to show «Matilda,» directed by Alexei Uchitel due to security threats. On the eve of the Director’s lawyer Konstantin Dobrynin wrote on his page in Facebook that an unknown person set a car on fire outside the office of the bar Association Pen&Paper in Starokonyushenny lane. In the photos attached to the record, you can see how near the fire lay the scraps of paper on which is written «For her to burn.» The police opened a criminal case on deliberate damage of property.

«The fear of the cinema chains, on the one hand understandable, and on the other I in the place of law enforcement agencies would do everything to prevent such cases», — said the Razlogov.

The interlocutor of Agency has underlined that «Matilda» has become a cult classic, as the prohibitions stimulate the interest of the public. «Therefore, her incredible popularity has led to this completely unmotivated scandal,» he added.

Previously, the Studio Teacher in St. Petersburg was attacked by unknown. The criminals threw into the window of the Studio of Molotov cocktails, causing a fire. The leader of the Orthodox movement «forty times Forty» Andrew Kornuhin condemned the attack, stressing that it was a provocation, and suggested that for security purposes, to provide the Director of security.

Earlier, representatives of the public movement «the Royal cross» called «Matilda» «anti-Russian and anti-religious provocation», and the Deputy of the state Duma Natalia Poklonskaya has asked the Prosecutor General to check the picture. According to her, experts and scholars made a comprehensive examination of the materials of the film, which showed that «Matilda» image doesn’t match the image of the Russian Orthodox Church canonized the Emperor Nicholas II.

Thus a press-the Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov, speaking about the statement Polonskaya, noted that «trying to evaluate a film that is not yet ready, at least strange». He also stressed that the discussion surrounding the film Teacher is possible, but all acts of bullying are subject to stringent assessment and will be stopped.
