A walk through the filming locations of the film Brother with Sergey Bodrov

I remember how a long time ago on TV very often the film “Brother” by Alexey Balabanov with Sergey Bodrov and Viktor Sukhorukov was shown in the lead roles. Then I have not been to St. Petersburg and perceived the city solely on the picture from the movie. Autumn, light sepia film. A sort of Black Dog Petersburg, painted in gray shades of hopelessness, Russian noir. I will not talk about whether it was a good movie or bad. I was very interested in the very atmosphere of the film and the city. I wanted to touch these walls with my own hands, to feel the cold wind from the Neva, to go to those places. The main hero of the picture for me was not Danila Bagrov, but Petersburg itself. It is possible that there is in this some kind of strange romance incomprehensible to many.

So, the movie trip in the style of "it was-become" in the places of the film "Brother", filmed in 1997. I completed one more item in my list - I visited the filming locations of “Brother”, found those same angles and scenes.

At the very beginning of the film, Danila Bagrov arrives from a small provincial town in St. Petersburg to visit his elder brother.He walks in the center, admires the local beauties and periodically tries to reach Viktor Sukhorukov’s character. In the first picture you can see the embankment of the Griboyedov Canal and Kazan Cathedral. Here our character is walking along Millionnaya Street, crossing the Winter Canal near the Hermitage.

And this is a modern look.

The walk continues along the Moika River Embankment near the Pushkin Museum-Apartment.

Judging by some cars on the embankment - the time has not changed much.

Next, Danila goes in the direction of St. Isaac's Cathedral.

The grids are the same.

At the Bronze Horseman, the main character is a little lost - he looks around in surprise, as if he does not know where to go next.

Horseman in the fall of 2011.

Tired of searching and thoroughly frozen, Danila sits down on a stone bench at the Trinity Bridge.

I used to think that this place was taken from the Palace Embankment, but it turned out that the same bench is on the Petrograd side. It turns out that the hero moved to the other side of the Neva.

Not finding his brother, Daniel spends the night in the attic of one of the houses, and in the morning he meets a German who sells at Andreevsky Market on Vasilyevsky Island.The market, unfortunately, is completely rebuilt, so I could not find the exact angle. Skip these episodes. The German leads the hero to the Smolensk Lutheran cemetery to "visit" him.

The bridge over the Smolenka River and the very turrets on the house.

In the "gazebo" sit the same homeless, as the German itself.

Arbor, I did not find immediately. From the entrance - it is on the right side in the thickets, you have to walk 150-200 meters. In spite of the fact that this autumn the cemetery was restored - here everything is also ruin. And the arbor itself is also visited by someone - inside are bottles and jars.

Almost half of the film was shot on Vasilievsky Island. Here Danila Bagrov “puts in place” Caucasians who do not want to pay for the journey in the tram. The scene itself takes place at the intersection of Maliy Prospect VO and the 8th line.

The tram tracks have now been dismantled, but the church behind the background is still standing.

We are transported through the entire center to Kirochnaya Street, Building 8. Danila is trying to find the Nautilus CD and goes to music stores. Previously, in the basement was a club owned by Oleg Garkusha from AuktsYona.

Now the place for parties of the informal youth is almost unrecognizable - a slab, a lawn. But the store still seems to be valid.

So, Daniel still finds his brother, he gives him money to rent a room. The hero looks at various options and returns to Vasilyevsky Island.

This place is located on the Novosmolenskaya Embankment, very close to the Gulf of Finland. It appears in the film several times - later in the scene of the assassination attempt on the character Sergei Bodrov.

Having found a house, Danila receives an order from her brother - to kill Chechen, who holds the market. The hero thoroughly prepares for the assignment, studies the places of departure from the crime scene, puts on inconspicuous clothing.

I had to look for a pretty place! Analyzing the subsequent scenes with the tram, I thought about Andreevsky, and the Nourishing markets, as well as the Apraksin yard. But it turned out to be quite close by - at Sennoy. In the 2000s, it was completely rebuilt. In place of the elemental bazaar, a shopping complex and covered shops appeared. The wild market has shifted deep into the quarter. However, I nevertheless found an angle - on the firewall at number 4 on Moskovsky Prospect.

Having shot Chechen, Danila runs away from his pursuers through the entrance yard-well.

The biggest bloop in the film is connected with this yard that I found.The market is located on one bank of the Neva, and the courtyard is on the other, on Vasilyevsky Island! Between them - almost 3 km.

The bandits run into the same courtyard and wound Danilo with a pistol.

The yard itself is located between Tuchkov and Volkhovsky lanes.

Another movement in space and the wounded hero runs out of the yard onto Bolshaya Raznochichnaya Street, located on the Petrograd side. Here he jumps into a tram ride to the park.
