Evgenia Glushchenko film debut took place in 16 years. Then she met a novice director Nikita Mikhalkov, who then shot his graduate work, "I'm going home." The main role in this film did not bring the popular young actress - work recognized unfit for protection for political reasons, and the audience did not see on the screens Glushchenko.
Since then, 10 years have passed, and Mikhalkov again Glushchenko invited to star in his film "An Unfinished Piece for Mechanical Piano". However, at that moment, he had forgotten the girl who starred in his thesis work, and are familiar with it again. The actress recalls: "We were introduced: behold, they say, the young artist.

After which they were rehearsing, and then - a screen test: three different days. I knew that I had nothing. "Oh, well - thought - not very much and it is necessary." In the last sample Mikhalkov told the actress to play the final stage - in the water. Glushchenko told how she sincerely said: "I can not. I do not know how, do not understand what you want from me. " And he replied: "I do not want to." And I asked to write text on a piece of paper and read it, not fixing the attention of the camera. "And when I began to read:" Misha, my husband's favorite, "- suddenly she began to sob. So with tears and read up. " After that, Mikhalkov said: "That's how you have to play in a movie!".

Evgenia Glushchenko was always professional with a capital letter. Unlike most actresses, it did not care how attractive it looks on the screen - it was more important something else: whether it was able to convey the essence of the image. And that she managed brilliantly. The fully revealed her talent in the film "Love at his own request", where the actress asked to play the role of ugly. Directed by Sergey Mikaelyan initially decided that Glushchenko is not suitable for this role - according to the scenario, the heroine had to be lean and long-nosed. But Glushchenko samples was so organic that the director allowed her to refine the image in its sole discretion, and then called her the best actress in his creative biography.
The director did not get tired surprise that "it did not bother when we have to turn it into a plain girl." Evgenia Glushchenko meekly endured all "mockeries" make-up: her hair pulled into a ridiculous bundle spoiled latex skin acne, the figure "thickened" foam pads. "I went as a hockey player," - said the actress. And its "gray mouse" fascinated not only the hero Oleg Yankovsky, but millions of viewers. This role, many critics called the top of her creative life. Film purchased 26 countries, he has collected many awards at international competitions, and Glushchenko was awarded the prize "The Best Actress" at the International Film Festival in Varna and "Silver Bear" at the International Film Festival in West Berlin.
However, the actress best reward is not considered honorable prizes at international film festivals, and the recognition of the audience. Once it after the play a woman approached and said that Glushchenko along with her heroine saved her life. "These words directly into the soul I have got, - says Eugene K.. - When you hear this, you know: it means that everything that you do, it makes sense. So it was not in vain. "
After that, the actress was very selective in the profession, so the audience rarely saw it on the screen. She often refused the proposed roles and explains: "The main thing, as they say actors sudbinushku play, that's interesting! And there's no sudbinushek and practically. " But even if the film "Love at his own request" was the only one in her creative life, it would be enough to ensure that it was included in the history of cinema.
