 "The Conan Doyle stories had been made into many films before us, but, as I see it, our characters are remarkable in being very human and convincing. This is probably why the British recognized our film to be the best European version of its kind" - Vasily Livanov in Lifestyle: A Russia Journal Publication Issue No.2 (45) -  24th Jan 2000

No pipes, please.
