Ravshana Kurkova appeared in the film directed by William Kaufman entitled “The Brave”. The cast includes Gosha Kutsenko, Igor Zhizhikin, Ivan Makarevich, as well as foreign actors Louis Mandylor and Armand Assante.
Ravshana told about shooting in English and her attitude to this in an interview for InStyle:
“I admit: this format of filming has its pros and cons. When the role is written in Russian, you can improvise without thinking about which word goes next.

And the good thing about it is that language fillers that slip through many actors’ lines in their native language are eliminated. And here the character’s text is ascetic in a good way. But in general, I know English well, so I don’t have any particular difficulties. ”

The international project has already been released worldwide this March. The Russian release of the film is planned for November 7, 2019.
