Son of famous film-makers "- starts with almost every article about him. What does this mean? How many children of celebrities who died in the wilds of prestigious hangouts. Talented, but the flash of a moment, unable to withstand competition with the names of their parents. Talent for many, but the ability and desire to go in the same area of their own way, often deliberately emphasized "no father", and will do so - not at all. And not always known and popular parent can boast that one day he said: "Ah, so you're his father?" Andrew Rostotsky
not grow in the "star" environment, basking in the glory of the parent. About his childhood and adolescence joking: "I have a situation like in a school essay:" Pushkin was born with his grandmother in the countryside, while his parents were in St. Petersburg ". He believes that it is very much indebted to Tatiana Grigorievna grandmother - my mother's mother, who took the boy to his. She loved Andryusha to oblivion, is pleased to pamper landlord, but where there is: we must keep in order a wooden house in Bogorodskoye. At the very teenage son. And Andrew
helped his grandmother: chopped wood, carried water, repairing, repaired, built, in general, all the men working on it but for his uncle a little older than him.
. And in his spare time, my grandmother read to him by Pushkin, his idol, a biography of whom she had known for days, by the minute
. She brought up his grandson so that the XIX century for him forever became dearer and closer XX-th. Romanticism, . nobility, . dignity, . notions of honor - it is not only noble genes of the father (great-grandfather Andrew
was the actual state councilor, . lawyer, . for refusing to participate in the processes of political prisoners were exiled from St. Petersburg to the city Alapaevsk; grandfather graduated from medical faculty of Moscow University, . participated in the First World War), . it is also a spiritual atmosphere, . created this quiet, . modest, . industrious, . good, . educated woman from a working village.,
graduated from the British Special School
. Caring parents about school progress youngster ended an unsuccessful attempt to prove the mother that two plus three five. More lessons in none penetrated, and you could learn what is interesting. First of all, the British - the ability to do this is great fun, as well as history and literature. However, a teacher of literature has not always been pleased with his progress. What! Has your opinion, which, moreover, is not quite the same as what was written in the textbooks. At mark Andrew
paid little attention, early feeling that "the mind is not mnogoznanie teaches". He received a good liberal arts education, precisely because he studied in a meaningful, not crammed into school all in a row and soaked up the right. Autonomy and here played a role, his idol was Lermontov - poet, demonic, rigid, and, perhaps, tragic. He was close to Lermontov's romanticism, his attitude towards women.
Parents felt that due to his human qualities, Andrew
could be a diplomat or a great surgeon: the family had a strong medical tradition. With his "thinking hands" were others - a stable and reliable - Prospects. A career in movies afraid to think: even if the talent, the result may be the most disastrous. But ... The first time Andrew
came to the set with her mother - she played a major role in the film "Little Farm in the steppe B. Buneeva and then was surprised how accurate tips makes it a 10-year-old son, the boy who starred in the film. Then, at age 14, went with his father to shoot the film "The Dawns Here Are Quiet" and they enthusiastically participated in the process, helping the director, property master, pyrotechnics. It was then decided: who will work anywhere, but only in the movies. He realized that this was his way of life.
On Directing Department in its 16 years, Andrew
did not dare to go. Finishing 9 th grade, learned that VGIK SF. Bondarchuk announces an additional set of boys in an acting workshop. To show chose "Architects" Kedrin, "Yegorushka" Tsvetaeva and prose Victor Koneckogo. When called Bondarchuk Rostotsky
elder inform, . that his son liked, . he snapped: "If you doubt it, . it is better not to spoil the child's life! "Andrew
was enrolled as an auditor and, . continuing to attend school, . could attend classes on the specialty and the Institute,
. Fate would be decided after 1 year. And she decided. At this time, he was invited to Ilya Frezu in the film "That we do not pass", and Bondarchuk confirmed the role of Corporal Kochetygova in the film "They Fought for Their Country" (1975).
His first film role was his first trick. This is a memorable scene in the movie: tank comes over to the trench, which is a fighter, and is set in place, leveled trench with the earth: the hero Andrew
throws him a Molotov cocktail and dies. After the battle Lopakhin (actor Vasily Shukshin) mourns his death. Exactly a quarter century, Andrew
will meet with such characters in the television movie "My War" (120 episodes, directed by A. Aravin, 2000, was shown on the channel TVC), in which the veterans will speak about the realities of war, and the actor will act as moderator.
The first major role as Andrew
has not gone unnoticed - in the film and. Freza he played a senior high school student, defending the independence of their own opinion, is fighting for his love. The famous historian of children's movies KK. Paramonova said then that the undoubted success the film has just live individual character of a young man on the background of standardized, lacquered students and teachers of youth films of those years.

His heroes - a person, strong-willed, independent, purposeful, trying to live by high ideals and spiritual values. They are often thought of in the Soviet cinema as role models, samples, which should strive to youth.
Yet the actor managed to avoid sketchy, superficial positivity. The audience loved him motivated eyed handsome man, whose thoughts are not at variance with the case. It is more expensive were more complex. Lermontovsky spirit he felt in the script remarkable playwright E. Grigoryeva "Silver Lake" (directed by B. Buneyev, 1989), although the plot of the contemporary works of repeated Pushkin's "Eugene Onegin" and the script was originally named "Tatiana". But Andrew
found in the character of the hero pechorinsky drama: internal dissatisfaction with reality, gives birth to intolerance, youthful cruelty, isolation, the hero created himself through the suffering of others.
