“I have an idea to make three Russian films. The first one will be called “The Engineer of Easy Walks”, this is my version of Dostoevsky. The second one will be based on “The Tale of how Ivan Ivanovich Quarreled with Ivan Nikiforovich” by Gogol. The third one will be “The Cossacks” based on the novel by Leo Tolstoy…If I have your support,” said Kusturica.
