"So seriously respond to allegations of such a union, which often consists of three people, I would not. Nobody disputes the artistic component of the movie" The Godfather "and" The Godfather 2 "was shown on NTV. But I totally do not understand the hysteria of some pro-Lukashenka my colleagues. Ostensibly it was not about the movie who kills his political opponents, throwing them in jail, breaks them their lives, and about Mother Teresa. Lukashenko But not Mother Teresa and deserves a hard, critical look. The more different types of films "The Godfather", the faster Belarus will be free. "
